Motion Window or C.R. Laurence?

I have had my 2017 T150 Cargo van for a year and a half and want to install a window in my passenger sliding door. Looking for good advice which to buy. Does not have to have an opening/sliding hatch just need to open up my blind spot. Seems some people have had problems with windows not fitting the contours of the Transits curvatures and I want to avod that if possible.

The CR laurence is vehicle specific and looks pretty much like a stock window from the outside and the glass extends past the opening to fill the area between the body lines on the outside. The motion is just a generic rectangular window. I installed the cr laurence on both sides with no issues.

As I understand it the CRL has an inner frame glued onto the glass and then is bolted in place with an inner ring. Is there a chance that the glue will come undone and the window fall out?

I think that the CRL that fills the window depression is also glued to the door, like all of the OEM slider and similar windows are. If that helps.

I used these and they fit perfectly, both driver and passenger, fit and install just like factory fixed windows...https://www.fordvanworld.com/windows.html

I have motion windows, they follow the contour just fine. But they don’t look OEM at all.

I just put 3 CRLs in and couldn’t be happier with how they went in. Big one that has the T vents at boom behind driver’s seat and 2 pull shaped ones high on rear quarters. The pill shaped ones obviously don’t look factory but he big one does.
