Hello fellas, I have been looking at an 84 rampage for nearly 20 years and it finally looks like the owner is willing to part with it.

Does anybody have any tips for finding replacement glass for tge rear window. Also any general knowledge about these cars would be appreciated.

Loved looking through the old posts and seeing the pictures.

Welcome to TurboDodge!

You could get a replacement glass from a junkyard through car-part.com. I've seen a post where it was mentioned that one could be made since it's just a flat piece of glass. IDK...

I've got a '83 that I've been working on for almost 2 years, a stock restore. Any questions or issues, just let us know!

Yes, the back windshield can be easily made for the truck, with or without a slider. It's flat glass and I've spoke to a few shops about having one made myself. Personally, I want a sliding rear windshield instead of the solid piece.

Parts unique to our truck are VERY difficult to come by sometimes. I would check certain sites that monitor yards. After about two years I FINALLY found a driver side fender and many other parts are just as hard to come by. However, don't be discouraged. Just start early. If you have any questions about repair, finding parts, or anything just let me know. My '83 sat for about twenty years before I got it and I've slowly gone through her top to bottom. Now she's my daily driver.
