Default Got a crazy idea

Alright i know there is no need for this but in the 04 f150 lariat we had, the sliding window was power. Is it possible to take the motor out and put it in the ranger some how? and then use the Expo OHC with the sunroof switch to power it.

Possible...probably. But our window opens maybe 10 inches? Can be reached easily by reaching back there...Not sure where you would put the motor for the window either as I am not sure how they move, guessing some sort of cable...

anything is possible man i had a 4runner rear window in my old toyota that i could raise and lower with the flick of a switch. what you may want to do is measure your window and the f150s and you might be able to get the f150s out and put it in your ranger and that way you will have everything you need and you wont need to mod your rear window

you may even have to do the (Toyota or is a Nissan?) trick where the window rolls down not to the side.
if you get some thing like that i want in on the how to as well
