Sierra, I've read a few threads that said CRL and Motion Windows (the two main aftermarket window companies) have not yet made Transit windows, but are working on them.
I just installed a couple Motion Windows in a T1N Sprinter for someone, and it's really easy. You just cut a hole of the correct size, use the provided rubber gasket material, and attach the inner trim with screws to the outer window to squish the window and inner frame and gasket material together to clamp on to the van sheet metal. They DO come with instructions, and there are how-to videos on their websites.
Small details like window location, amount of torque on the mounting screws so they hold tight without stripping and such are left up to you.
I don't know how the "all glass look" windows attach, but I think with adhesive.
There is a universal Motion Window that is about 36x10 that should work on the Transit. The curvature of the side of the van requires a sort-of matching vertically curved window for anything taller; THAT is probably what these companies are working on.
Another option would be to look into ordering the factory Transit window(s) as replacement parts and have them installed by a body shop. Or maybe they are easy enough to do at home, but they are the adhesive type.
