Power Rear Windows

Does anyone know it there is a conversion kit for the rear pop windows to make them power windows.

Never seen one, but I bet one can be retro fitted off a different vehicle

at first I thought you meant power up and down, like the F-150's, cause that would be badass!

All you'd really need is a short stroke electric actuator/screw drive. I'd imagine it could be done fairly inexpensively, but I don't think it would even be worth the effort considering how small Ranger cabs are to begin with.

I think he may have been refering to the rear-side windows on Supercabs.

So Ford puts in two doors and removes two functional windows for two static ones? WTF.
lol


Does anyone know if it's easy to swap 'em? I'd like to be able to open my rear door windows a little.

I'm pretty sure some Windstars have the screw drive actuators as well... should be easy enough to find at the wreckers!
