Default Bottom Track For Tailgate Window???

Anyone know where to get or have a bottom track that the tailgate window goes in to? My tailgate had the window broke out and the bottom track is missing. I've done some searches and made some calls but can't seem to find one. The guys at the glass shop say this is all I need for them to be able to put some glass in it.

Thanks,
Nick

haha yea duhhh that would probably help. I have an '86 k5 Blazer Silverado. On the title it actually says K10, but on the side of the truck the emblem says "k5 Blazer". Is k10 just the "uppity" version of the k5 (electric windows, electric tailgate window)?? I will check out LMC. Thanks!

Thanks for your input. The owner of the glass shop went ahead and recommended that I get a new tailgate because mine was cracked in a couple of places. He said this was probably the reason the window broke in the first place, and that it would likely happen again. I found a tailgate from an old '87 GMC Jimmy in a junkyard and believe it's going to work. I was looking at between $400 and $500 to fix my old one. Got the new one for $150!

I have one for a manual window if there is a difference.

yea it is cracked on each side and the guy said it would cause it to flex thus breaking the window...i already found a tailgate from an 87 Jimmy, but am struggling at the moment to get it working..did the cracks effect your previous k5 tailgates??
