    Hey all. I have a '91 379LN. Needless to say, I have no OEM technology. After 31 years and 2.2 mill miles, the window crank handles finally rolled for the last time. Attach are the OEM replacements I found on ebay. Total was about $45 on my doorstep. I have the round mounts with the lil bumps on them.
    Be sure to order the correct mount design for your buggy. Resized_20220801_172525.jpeg

    Your local peterbilt dealer should have had those in stock still. Why you say you have no OEM technology?

    Word of advice.. if your wanting OEm stuff 90% of the stuff on Amazon & flea bay is Generic and cheap knock off stuff that doesn't always fit correctly
    Seller name..hanks1961kw..( Henry) on E bay .. look him up message him what your looking .. he sells a boatload of Pete & KW oem parts.. just be prepared to pay 80% of new price .. he's not cheap
     
    Roger McG, CowboyTim and Coolbreezin Thank this.

    I saw that. But wanted to stay factory. Plus, I'm blacking out my interior. Even declined going to electric windows.

    Just my .02 worth .. it's your truck everybody has their own taste..
    I like limited amount of shinny stuff .. it's easy to go overboard with the chrome & S/S.. I redid the interior on my 359 few years ago now got a deal on black interior panels stitched in red.. tried to limit the shiny S...t ...to make sure it wasn't overkill.. long story short .. I like it fairly dark inside the cab especially at night..
    Anyhow I accidentally ended up with almost blacked out interior... it was annoying just looked like you were in a black hole. Even in the daytime if you dropped something it was a PITA to find it unless it was as big as a baseball.. I'am in the process as we speak of changing it up some. I couldn't take it after 3 years of stare'n out the black hole..
    This coming from somebody that hardly ever turns a light on in the house
    All this is just my opinion..

    I here you. I’d be willing to bet that the electric windows wouldn't have lasted 2.2 mil like the tried and true hand cranks did.
