Normal. Think about it, if you want to open the sliding window between the pickup cab and the shell, you would likely be inside the truck reaching backwards (through the truck slider) rather than being in the bed of the truck and reaching forward.I did buy the Ranch cap for $600
Front sliding window, side vented sliding windows, and frameless rear window
It has an LED third brake light and a battery powered LED light inside.
I need to order a roll of gasket sealing material before I reinstall the cap. There was an extremely thin strip already installed.......that I removed. It was only 1" wide and wasn't event 1/8" thick
The only odd thing about the cap, in my opinion, is the handle or knob on the front sliding window. The handle is on the outside of the window.........normal or not?
