ZX3 windows

I LOVE my ZX3 but I wish the back windows would open.

Does any one know of a mod that will allow the three (2 side, 1 back) back windows to open?

A kit or something.

Same here, you'll be looking at a custom job for that.

If you do it, that would be pretty neat.

you would have to remove the cover that covers the truck area thats connected to the back seats and the back hatch. I personally like it because then no one in the back can toss trash or something back there without me seeing it later. Unless you dont have young grimey friends like me that would be cool to do.

it would make for real open air feeling, kinda like what 4 runners and wranglers can do. . .

You could probably do something like they do for the back side windows in mini-vans. They open outwards, you know? I've thought about that before, too. It'd be a real hassle to do, though.

This is exactly what I was was talking about. PLUS... a back window that opened like my Explorer - seperate from the hatch.

My real problem is that when driving down the highway with the two front windows and my moon roof opened, it makes like a parachute inside the car - no place for the air to pass through... just swirls around in the back.

Oh well... I would settle for the two back-side windows that open like you say.

I see that this works well in some parts to ventilate rear windows:
