Windows out of a 79 J 10

I have a problem with the windows in my 79 J 10. The little hook that holds the window lifter to the window has broken off on both windows causing them to fall off the track and into the doors. I have another set of doors, with good windows and lifters in them, I was wondering if anyone knew how to get the windows out and swap them.

Thanks,

Alex

in my opnion, swapping the doors is easier. I had the same problem and after looking at it that was the conclusion i came to. The only thing is the latches might require a bit of fabwork if they are different, but nothing too serious.

Really not much to it.
After you remove the door panel, look down from the front window channel.
There are 2 screws through a bracket. Remove the screws, push the channel forward, and remove the glass. The major problem will be if the screws are rusted fast. This is what I encountered, and at that time, as per post, changed the door. I have been driving around for about 7 years with a door not the same color as the truck.
One of our local glass shops didn't know how to do the window removal, so they took the air chisel to the interior of the door and cut their way in. When they finished, they did not weld. Owner, not me, had a bit of a rattle, and the window did not go all the way up. Quite unhappy.
