Gear ratios on the manual wind up windows?

I have a ranger with manual wind up windows and I was wondering if there is a simple way to make them wind up 3-4 times faster by changing a gear or something? Probably far fetched, but I thought I would ask.

The simplest way I know how is to move your arm really fast while rolling it up.

Carry a cordless drill in your truck. Remove the window crank handles, and tighten the drill chuck on the crank handle shaft. Press the trigger.

For really high speed window action, use a Dremel tool or an angle grinder.

Mine's pretty fast - quick push of the button and it does everything automatically for me

Its amazing what a little bit of 12v innovation can do for a vehicle. LR

Oh, well I suppose you could do it that way -- But where's the satisfaction of making something yourself, from scratch?
