Thanks again,

We're both guilty of highjacking but as you say it was marginally on-point to the OP!

We want a CRL window to go in the driver side forward position in our 2010 E350 Cargo. I've got Sienna seat and am putting them in right behind the driver and passenger seats. We have a 3 year old who will sit in the driver side one most of the time and want him to have a decent view out the window. However, we want to prioritize safety and reliability of the windows integrity.

The biggest CRL window forces me to cut more of the inner framing of the van's body, gives the biggest view, but leaves him the most exposed if in an accident. It is the "all glass look" and follows the curve of the side the most. This one cuts across the lines of the van to some extent.


The middle size CRL window is a the traditional style and is flat. It basically fits in the cutout already built in to the panelling of the van and follows the outside lines of the van for the most part. I wouldn't have to cut into any of the prominent ribbing on the inside. Anyone had any leaking issues with these?


The smallest CRL window is another "all glass look" and definitely fits inside the cutouts and fits inside the outside lines. It would obviously restrict the views for our little passenger the most.


Anyone have any advice for me?
Sorry for bringing this thread back from the dead. Does anyone know the size/model of that middle window? I'm interested in ordering it but I want to make sure I get the right one. It looks like maybe a van that ujoint did?

Do you mean the van in the middle picture, window behind driver?
That should be a CRL T-Vent VW21452L

Pros - large widow with a half opening sliding vent.
Cons - not usable in rain

If you want any CRL windows, let me know which ones. I have an account with them and try to help forum members out price wise. Sometimes they are cheaper on Amazon than I can do with shipping. If you are near a CRL warehouse that has stock, I can set up a will call. Thxs.

Yea that's the window. When you say not usable in the rain, you just mean you can't open it in the rain right? I'm in the Boston area, I think they might have a facility in Southern MA? How much does that particular window cost? Amazon has that window with bronze glass it looks like?

Before you decide- check out this thread from shenrie. The window he used is more conforming to the side of the body. The leading edge of the window follows the body contour. It seems CRL is limiting what windows they are stocking for the the Ford Econoline vans. I will call when we get a couple of choices nailed down. Re rain - yes, it will let the rain in vs an awning style which is the bottom picture.

Yea I like that window that shenrie used. I'm less concerned with the design of the window and more about the side. The fact that the window follows the contour well is an added bonus.
