I recently broke out the sliding window of my 96 Ford Ranger XLT Super Cab I'm looking to replace it with a stationary back window but I'm having a hard time finding a window that'll fit what other windows will fit my back window to make it stationary

So even if it says the part won't fit it will?

Yes, it will

Welcome to TRS :)

Also 1998 to 2011 Regular cab, they changed to bolt in windows

In about 2005 Ford added 2 more studs to the top of these windows so you would need to drill 2 new holes in top frame

All super cabs used bolt in rear glass, slider or solid, 3 studs on top, 3 on bottom, 1 on each side
In 2005 they added 2 more on the top
In 1998 Regular cabs were switched to these same bolt in windows, they previously used different size glass and no bolts, just a gasket seal held them in place

Now, I have read of 2 super cabs that had the gasket type rear windows, so this is a "general" rule
I would pull the interior panels to see if you have bolt in or gasket type BEFORE buying a replacement, then get replacement for what YOU have on the 1996

This article is about removing the gasket type rear window on regular cabs: https://www.therangerstation.com/Magazine/spring2009/remove_rear_window.shtml

Here is a picture of the bolt in window frame, you can see the holes for the studs on the rear window frame: https://www.ranger-forums.com/attachments/exterior-semi-tech-39/176896d1501424019-back-sliding-window-question-103-0333_img.jpg

There are videos on replacing these
