Default M1009 1984 Blazer Window screens or bars

I bought a 1984 CUCV Blazer and would like to install some window security. I was thinking along the lines of something like in the picture attached.
I am in Thailand until the end of next month when I will go home, but was hoping someone may have the window dimensions of the Blazer, back, side and driver, so I can order the screens. Or, share an idea or product you may have to secure a window, except for the windshield. Thank you.

49 views and no ideas or answers? Man, what has America come to? I leave you guy's alone for just a few years and you fall apart. Don't worry, boots on the ground March 31....Rangers lead the way!

By now you likely have realized that this site is 99% s-series folks. Most of the views are likely from people that do not own a K5 and were looking to see what it was you were doing since this is in the Builds section...

I have a full set of square body doors under the barn here at the farm so the dimensions for those are: 19" high, 21"/34" wide top/bottom including the vent window.


I'll try to remember to measure up the tailgate and rear side windows on my '74 once I get home.

It has been early mornings and late nights for me this week and haven't had a chance to get out to the truck in the daylight. I looked at it last night and it is currently under a 5ft snow drift. I will see if I can get out to it this morning.

*EDIT* - Well that was fun! One side was fairly well cleaned off so I took some measurements. It occurred to me after the fact that laying them down on a picture of the truck would be helpful so I found a decent rear 3/4 shot to write down the numbers on.

Anyway, the back window is 61" at the bottom, 50" at the top & 19" tall. It is pretty close to a 3" radius at the top corners.

The side windows are 55" bottom, 53" top, and 18" tall. Again, ~3" radius on all 4 corners and the window is cut like a trapezoid, however it is not a parallel trapezoid as the front edge of the window has less of an angle to vertical than the rear. I am fairly certain that the newer tops have the same window dimensions. I seem to remember seeing sliding rear windows retrofitted into full convertible tops in the past. It is not like you are cutting glass from these dimensions. They should work for your purposes.

I'm getting them for something way worse than zombies. These pieces of live human garbage are called THIEVES! Anything I can do to slow them down, or at least make them look for easier pickings.
