New pics of my truck with FX2 Decals and other new pics!

Everynight I drive home, blast the air, and my windows fog up, and anything I back up, I cant see crap cause it fogs up and I fear backing into something or someone someday...There has to be a way to make one, some way, lets create one, someone has to have some input!

Jon,
Unless you find another vehicle with the metal strips already in the glass that FITS in the ranger you'll be LUCKY.
Here's what you do, get some duck tape and some air conditioning vents and duck tape then from the front air vents along the ceiling and poitning down at the back windows, turn on the heat and VOILA! anything else you need... just let me know :D

If you don't have a sliding window, you can buy Do-It-Yourself defroster grids from JC Whitney. If you have a sliding window, that won't work fo obvious reaons. JC Whitney again has little defroster fan things you can mount under the window. They aren't pretty but they will work.

A guy from Florida asking about a rear defroster....
More like you need a dehumidifer.
JK Jon - do you have a slider? If so, open it up a bit.
Also try turning the HVAC switch to heat just a bit - your truck must be like a can of cold soda in the sun with that much fog/condensation on the back window.

Just don't have your A/C blasting with the vents pointed at the rear window. Point the vents down. Cheapest fix yet.

Quite interesting, I have all the vents pointed towards my face, thats an interesting idea. As far as those strips, couldnt they just be molded to the two non-sliding parts??

Well, yes you could put them on the non-sliding part. But, it might look kinda wierd.

Or put some on the sliding part, but not wire them up...?

Might not work, but it wont look dumb, maybe when the rest of the window defrost, and the mid section dont....

Try the Rain-X Anti-Fog. Says, " Rain-X Anti-FogTM eliminates and prevents fogging of interior glass and mirrors." Not sure if it works or not, but hey, its worth a shot.
