Truck Rear Window Defrosters

If you live in snow country you know rear window defroster can be handy on those cold winter mornings or when the going gets tough in bad conditions. Only about half of new trucks come with a rear defogger.

What to do if your truck did not come with rear defrost? Clear View are easy to install rear window defrosters for Ford, Chevrolet, Toyota, and Dodge pickups plus most other makes and models.

Clear View Pickup Truck defrosters provide factory defroster performance with an attractive finished look. Because trucks have glass that is relatively easy to access installing the Clear View defroster is easy.

Truck Rear Window Defrosters

Clear View Defrosters reliably melt snow and ice even in the coldest winter conditions. The defroster elements come on pre spaced rolls for perfect alignment and trimmed to the window size for a custom fit. The heating elements bond aggressively to the glass and are similar in color to factory elements.

The defroster is connected electrically to power and ground through the Clear View side buss bars. The defrosters have an electrical resistance which when powered results in heating performance similar to factory rear defrost.

Made right here in Colorado where we know winter, Clear View defrosters come as complete ready to install units including our ThermaSync defroster timer control and activation switch with defroster symbol and indicator light. The defroster switch can be mounted remotely from the control in the dash or using the under dash mount included with the unit.
