Rear tailgate window "clips."

Does anyone know what size the two metal clips are for the tailgate window? I found this picture online and it's the two round clips in the bottom of the picture. I finally got my window to go up and down, but the missing clips prevent the window from staying on the two rails and then the window gets stuck. I tried to get my hand in there to measure them, but I don't have fingers like E.T.

BJ's Offroad has them, AFAIK. Then have an electrician friend who also owns an FSJ drill two access holes in your tailgate for you. That's what I did.

There are at least a couple of good write-ups in the tech section dealing with tailgates and yes, these clips. I followed the steps there with success.

I use regular 7/16" E-clips from the hardware store. And yeah, adding those access holes helps a lot.
