Default Rear window seal

I started to repair a couple holes in the Cab and found it goes deeper into the channel than I thought. It also ate away at the weather seal around the window. Who sells the replacement seal?
Also thinking while I have the window out, should I go with a solid window or keep the sliders. Go to the poll and voice your opinion.

keep in mind the seal is different between the slider and the solid glass, at least it was on my former 87

Hell all it takes is two hands and the rear window is popped out in under a minute.

My 87 came with the slider, later I removed it for the power slider, than removed that for the one piece glass, made it easy for the large "Hardbody" decal I had on the rear glass:

I installed the slider for air flow on hot days.

I leave it open almost all the time. I've never had one person try to get in that way.
