Default Does your truck have Rear Window Defrosters?

I'm really surprised that my 2013 Bighorn came without rear window defrosters! I do have heated mirrors though Just curious if this is common...please hit the poll!

My 09 Bighorn does not have one, but I wish it did. I could be wrong, but I think if you have the power operated rear window, you can't have rear defrost. I could be wrong.. Just ask my wife!

That may be true but my 2010 F150 had power slider and rear defrost so I know it can be done!

Heated mirrors are essential! I am really glad I have those! Rear defrost would have been a nice addition however.

I just recently installed one on my '13 express. I really feel like these trucks should come stock with it.

Interesting...do you have any details on the install? Was it OEM?

My 2014 Limited has the power and defrost. I really do not see any reason for rear defrost in a pickup. I have driven pickups for about 40 years,never had a rear window frost over!
I live in Wisconsin,so we do get frost!
