Hello to all on the Easter Sunday.  GOD Bless All !

Jamman is working on a replacement bushing for the doors, to eliminate the forward tilt of these windows when closing the window.

It started me thinking about my older Rangers, I only remember my '88 that had the Vent Windows, also called Butterfly Windows, they were very useful windows, helped to vent the cab, add fresh air, great instead of turning on the AC.

Does anyone know when Ford stopped installing the Vent Windows ?

I think 89 may have been the last, I seem to recall the 90-91 had door glass windows much like the 93+

As for your bushings, usually any glass replacement shop has teh replacement plastic clips and bushings for the windows..

I was thinking '89, my '88 STX, had the Vent Windows and they worked sssooo good !

What I would REALLY like, would be to add Vent Windows to the '03 Doors...  :-P for sure !

I get a similar effect from a set of in channel smoked vent visors that I think offers a bit more control over the airflow, therefore temp control. But usually its always vented or AC on except mornings where the heat is on.  Summer time  here in Vegas it can be 02:15hrs and still a 106* in the middle of the night.

I hated the vented windows mostly because they were easy targets to break out and pull the door handle open from the inside, and then because of that, they were expensive to replace because of the manufacturing process.  So much cheaper to just replace sun-bleached vent visors every 5-6 years. lol

The 68 Mustang I had back in the 80's had the vent windows & I loved them since the car had no A/C.
