Side vent window conversion on 05 Ranger EXT

I am wondering if anyone has ever attempted to convert a fixed window design on the extended cab trucks to a vent style window. I am familiar with how they lock in (for the msot part) but not sure if its setup for such things already or if I need to do some massive modifications

I've not seen the vent window option on an 05 ranger so I dont know if it was ever offered but I am curious and would like to know if anyone has any tips on doing so.

You want to add a wing window? you'll need to fab up a new vertical post for that wing window to pivot on. You'd also need to have new windows cut to fit and a hinge molded into a window I'm sure you can use a wing frame from an older vehicle and fab it to fit. Never seen or heard of somebody wanting to convert to it...good luck.

I figured as much. I tend to drive with the windows down most of the time and was going to get a rear vent window to put in and was thinking of doing electric both on the rear window and on the wing windows if it was a simple swap.

I thought if you had the four door super cabs that the rear wing windows are fixed for a safety reason like more strength but I could be wrong?

Cheaper, or it could rattle more in the 4 door.
