    The 88 and newer trucks never came with vent windows therefore everything would have to be custom made, and trying to retrofit parts from a older truck would be impossible due to newer trucks having much larger and differently shaped windows.

While there's no piece of glass sticking out to deflect air in like with the old triangles ... you can compensate for this by opening both windows with vent visors ... something that used to be tough to do because vent windows were always manual.
    I still have the manual windows in my truck, and more than anything the air flow on the old vent windows is what I was seeking. But it sounds like I could experiment with the vent visors and see what happens.

    Thanks for all the feedback from everyone.
