I got my window smashed out last Saturday an I am just wondering if anybody have experience (positive or negative) with replacing the rear glass (lift gate) with non-OEM (aftermarket) glass, specifically the "deep tint" version.

Some concerns I have are:
-Optical quality (does it look the same looking in the rear view mirror.
-Esthetic (Does it match the other windows, does it sit straight)
-Water Proof (Does the non-OEM seal leak)
-Defroster (Does it work, does it cover the wiper like OEM)
-Rear Wiper (Does it fit and mount correctly)
-Durability

Thanks for the help.

I had broken window in rear and safelite out in 2 aftermarket glass and were horrible the bottom trim piece was only glued in corners so when glass and tail gate was shut the pressure made the glue separate from glass and sounded like window was cracking so after 2 attempts of cheap glass I made them get mopar for same price as aftermarket and then all was good
