Powered Rear window

This summer I'm going to do this to my ranger, powered rear window. Have you noticed on the Toyota tundraís how the entire rear window can electronically go down and up. I just remembered that the ford explorer sport treks do that too but itís just the middle of the windows thatís about twice the size of our little rear-sliding window. I wonder if that explorer's window is the same size as ours so the mod wont be as difficult as trying to make an entire solid rear window go up/down. I don't care about having to chop up that back wall on the inside of the cab because I would just have a custom subwoofer box built to cover it all. Anybody let me know if you have already looked into this and what you have concluded. Thanks!

There were vertical power rear window kits for some F-series but I haven't seen one for a Ranger.

THIS is the closest thing I've found - a powered slider for a 98+ 4-door S/C. $409 shipped .

I can't see how it'd be worth the effort to chop it up. There's always so much cooler stuff to do.

i think that would be cool if you could get a ST window to work.. doubt it'd fit initially but IMO i'd be worth the effort

If you're looking for an assembly for moving it up and down, I know the 1988-1990 K5 Blazers have a pretty strong and compact motor (they have it fit in the tailgate). You could probably find those all day in a junk yard. Simple wiring too. Are you going to have some kind of custom seals or just get some more like you have and not put the adhesive on it? Definitely keeping tabs on this one, always wanted to have a slider window but never thought much into it.

Bronco's had power rear windows, you might be able to retrofit the motor and wires, but you'll have to fab your own assembly, track and receiving weather stripping.
