popout ventilation window

today I saw a Ranger with a popout ventilation window in the extended cab. I have
never seen one of these on a Ranger before. Does anyone know if this was or is a
factory option? And does it matter if its a supercab or extended? I would love to have
these windows, but I do have a supercab. One of the things I liked on trucks back in
the day was the wing glass and those are very rare on todays vehicles.

Ford discontinued this option at the end of the 2000 model year and it was only available on the 2dr super cabs.

I know for a fact the 01-04 2dr SC's have the proper mounting for the pop out windows. It wouldn't surprise me it the newer ones did as well.

Ok thanks, I will see if I can find out more info, But it sounds like maybe it was only availabe on the 2dr extended cabs, because I have a 4dr supercab and its an "06"
I know that their are differences, because of the door hardware on supercabs, my brother
has a 2dr. and the rear speakers are a breeze to swap out because you dont have to take off the whole door panel.

I donít think it is worth the effort to put them in. I have them on my Dodge and not once have I ever even thought of opening them up. Now the roll down ext. cab windows on the new trucks I could see using.

if you have a 2 door its actually very very very easy to install them about 4-6 bolts thats it. drill two holes in the plastic trim. i had my truck down to nothing and saw them i was like thats an easy swap

I get that, I just think it is pointless, especially on a ranger where even if you have someone in the back their backs are to the window. Even the Dog thing I don't get, of course I think it is dangerous and irresponsible to have your dog wandering in the cab freely anyway. In an accident they become a projectile, and loose dogs have cause accidents before. Always Crate your dog. Especially if you care about it. You wouldn't let a toddler run around the car un secured, would ya?

They make all kinds of safe crates for the bed of a pickup. Do what you want but your lack of crate training and wanting your dog free in the cab shows little actual care for the animal. It is something I feel strongly about. Also if you don't have the proper equipment (in an open rear truck, you need a special box that is bolted to the truck) then maybe you should not bring your dog with, or borrow a corectly equipped vehicle until you can get yours set up. I have a topper and with a tether system to hold down the standard plastic crate. Nothing to elaborate.
