Replacing slider window

I sealed my 3rd brake light with silicone to stop a water leak. I still have water coming into my truck. I took it to an auto glass company, they ordered me a new tinted full glass rear window to replace that slider window in my truck. My truck is a quad cab so I have absolutely no reason having a sliding rear window. This should stop water from getting into the rear of my truck.

Had the slider replaced today. Glass shop employee told me the slider window he removed was not the original, it was a factory window. He said the window wasn't properly installed. There was a slight gap all along the top of the window.

I think the new tinted rear window looks better than the slider. The integrity test will take place tonight, and tomorrow as we will have a lot of rain. My truck stays parked outside.

At some point I will need to add a Harley Davidson decal along with a new HTC decal. Fortunately I have a new white HTC decal I can install.

I never could understand the reasoning to install a sliding window in anything other than a single cab truck. I purchased my truck in 2013 and that slider had never been opened. If I ever buy another truck it will not have a slider.

Question

Wonder how one would look with just 'the old school look' of a smaller back window in a color-matched frame .

Maybe someone with good computer imaging and design skills could show that option just for grins .

I found my water leak today. I removed the 3rd brake light ( had to tear it out due to silicone sealer) to see if that was the source. Sure enough the water was coming in from the top running down the back of the light housing, dripping off the bottom. I broke the light getting it out, but fortunately for me, I had already purchased a Lumen 89-1001286 Black Fiber Optic LED 3rd Brake Light. I installed the new 3rd brake light. I am hoping my water leak has been fixed.
