power sliding rear window

One thing I really want on my next SD is a power sliding rear window.

Has anybody swapped in a Ford psrw into an SD that did not come equipped? Where did you get the window, and how much to install? Any kind of fab work required to install in a pre-04 SD?

And, are there any options besides Ford? Pics helpful...

Thanks,
Cliff

I put one in my 99. I found it on craigs list and I think I gave either $100 or $150 for it. It was brand new, I had to paid $75 to get it installed but after watching the guy do it, I should have done it myself. I had to wire it myself but that was no biggie. Other than that, there was no modification required.

That looks real good. Thanks for the pics.

Is that a Ford window or aftermarket? Did you get a factory switch for that? How big is the motor that runs it? Got pics of that?

The guy I bought it from said it was a factory Ford window. IIRC, the motor is probably a little bigger than a pack of cigarettes. I'll try to get a pic of it tomorrow.

The window is cable operated. There's a cable that comes out of each end of the window and the sliding glass is attatched to the cable. Unless you got a whole lot of dirt in the track, I don't see there being a problem with it.

What about the switch? Did you get a factory switch or hook it up with something else? A pic of that would be cool too.

Thanks,
Cliff

Being that Ford wanted like $30 for the stupid switch, I bought one from Radio Shack. One day, I'll get un-lazy and go to the junkyard and rob a factory switch out of a truck.....
