Every ranger I have owned had the sliding rear window.

This latest one don't.

I did notice when I glanced around I could see everything better.

I don't see a reason for the slide. What is this for? Easy access for people to enter your truck? So your passenger can hold the mattress up while you drive? So you can pass a smoke to the people riding in your bed? To make that loud obnoxious noise it does when you have it open and drive?

I was told one time that sliding rear window was used to help ventilate gas fumes put of the cab when trucks had the gas tank behind the seat

Some people prefer to not run their A/C all the time and still like to stay cool. A sliding rear window makes a huge difference in interior air movement with the windows down. It's also perfect for those days that you don't really need A/C but you're still a little warm..

In the early trucks with wing windows in the doors, the airflow is increased even more.

In my latest V8 truck with no A/C, I need to install a rear slider in a bad way. I"m also looking for a good set of doors with wing windows. I'll install A/C eventually but it'll be years before I get to that.

Always seemed to be just easier theft option.. I took my slider out and replaced it with a solid back window. Its either A/C weather or 2/70 air.. I don't care which.

IN my single cab Ranger, I used the slider all the time. Open it, open the side windows some, incredible air flow. Truck didn't have AC either. In my super cab Ranger I don't use it as much just because it's a little harder to get to. It is just like in my Mustang, Turn the wing vent all the way around, you will never see better air flow outside of two wheels.

I never worried about the theft option as I never leave anything visible in the truck. And I park by more expensive vehicles!

I do not always use my A/C & like stated the rear slider works great to add to the air circulation in the cab. I also do not worry about the theft option with the rear slider as I leave nothing of value in the truck & if anyone wants to steal it is always unlocked anyway.
