Power rear window

I've been looking around for quite some time now on these forums and all over the web and I can't seem to find a rear window that is powered the way I want it. I was look for one that is not just powered in the traditional way but instead works like a limo window, going up and down. If anyone has any info at all on a kit or just a site with a very detailed mod that would be awesome, thanks.

Yeah I would be happy with the power slider, I guess unless my back window breaks though....

yea if they went down that would be sweet... getting a powe slider would just be because your lazy, it takes half a second to do....

the only real reason i could see getting one is because its quite a reach even for me to open with the extend cab....

thanks for the link to the crl one, but thats really easy to find, i was looking to see if anyone had any leads on how to install the up down type. Myabe taking the mechanism from another car and using it in the ranger with some modification.

I used to have an '87 Ranger bigfoot edition, which had a full power rear window. i think that window was the best part of the truck. i briefly looked into swapping one in but i don't think an '87 window would fit into an '05.

that would be awesome except the price. id rather reach back and take the half second to open it. however if i had a quad cab i would think about it.

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=19301


i think it came down to finding parts in a junk yard, and making my own kit.. or somethin like that.. but, im too afraid to attempt a project like that, so i stopped lookin into it, lol.

its just kinda strange that this is something so many people would want but no company has made a kit and no person has made the mod, the closest i found was the breezer rear window:

yeah those are kinda close.. but too expensive. if i were to have a full window, i'd want it to be powered for the "cool factor"

this is a few hundred dollar mod that requires extensive knowledge and major irreversable change to the original truck, I'm not suprized in the least that its not being made. I want one too, but even if there was a kit you could by I dont know if i would invest in it...
