The back window on my camper shell lost it’s shocks, the things that hold it up.
I lived about 15 minutes from a beach near Corpus Christi about 7 years ago. The truck spent a LOT of time very close to the salty spray. Not close enough to get stuck in the sand but really really close to the waves.
I didn’t get any rust except for those window holder-upper things. One went fairly quickly. The other one lasted a while but it finally gave way and leaked all of it’s oil out and never worked again.
It’s a pain in the butt to hold the window up with one hand while trying to open or close the tailgate.
Not to mention how awful it is to have to climb in there with a heavy window hitting you on the head.
Finding replacements has been it’s own challenge but we may have succeeded. We shall see.

I LOVE the convenience of having a truck but I abhor repairs. How about you? Does anything car related irritate you or do you take it in stride?
