yah you could do that easily. i redid the wiring on my rear regulator since it had gotten tangled up. it ran fine after i redid the wiring.
i thought about putting a new pulley on the regulator that had gone bad, but i never got around to it.
like you brandon i never opened my rear windows, never had a need for it. so i rigged mine shut and unplugged them permanantly.

thanks for the compliment saveitk

btw i have a passenger front regulator F/S if anyone needs it. i think thats the last part left from my car...other then my ///M keychain.
