one piece windows

hey guys...........i wanted too know if there is a company that offers 1 piece windows for the early 90's trucks. i was looking and thinking of removing the vent (wing) window on my truck to give it a cleaner look. has anybody done this conversion. if so can i see a pic. i already have p/w on my truck so all i would need is the glass and probably some other stuff. let hear what you got. thanks.

There aren't any companies I'm aware of either that make such a kit. I just don't see removing that vent doing much to clean up the truck. Just my .02

On a custom side, you could always, shave the handles, and mirror holes, then have a plate made and mount custom mirrors where the vents are. That'd be sweet, and clean.

The vent window is part of why I like this body style.

Big Amen! Doing away with vent windows was the worst thing the companies ever did; it was a big A/C sales (and repair) incentive. I was ventless for over ten years, but since I got my '88 F150 I realize how much quieter it is driving with windows down, vents open - and A/C off.

Well, yes & no... Yes there is a company, but they don't have kits for 90s Fords.

Contact them & see what they can do.

If you look at the right side of their home page they are working on products for 67-96 Ford trucks. It doesn't specify what products though, and I'm assuming that it is products for full size trucks. Their open-piece door glass kits aren't inexpensive though.

If you look under the second youtube video, it sez:

"Next on our List is the 1967-96 F-Series Truck Full One Piece Door Glass Conversion Kits..."

So if he calls they might be able to give him a time frame as to when it might be available.

At any rate it does answer the question, "Is there a company...?"

(On edit, I missed the side bar, just saw the bottom notice)
