    Don't see why not. Back in the day when rear window defoggers were not normal standard equipment on most cars we used to install them ourselves. You should be able to buy a kit to hook one up from a local parts store. Its not quite the same as an OEM kit, the wires are alot fatter for example, but it helps keep you from busitng it when you put it in.

    Go to a Salavge Yard buy a OEM rear glass with one, find a truck in the Salavge yard and buy the harness and switch.
