    So I have been pondering adding a sunroof to the truck. Is this an easy drop in or will there need to be changes to the interior lights and cubby system in the roof liner. Not sure if the sunroof trucks have all the same stuff as the non sunroof rigs. Any sunroof guys here with input?

    Probably more trouble than worth. I've also heard they those who add it in after the truck is built have had issues with leaks.

    Well. the overhead console is different, so you'd have to replace that. Dunno if the sunroof switch is pre-wired so you may have to run some wires. If not prewired, its doubtful the power supplied to your dome lights would be sufficient to drive the sunroof motors.

    like @Sean266 said I have considered it in the past and been told that most sunroofs installed afterwards end up leaking

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    Not worth it... only company I'm aware of I believe they still are making it is ROCKWELL.. yes the people who made the space shuttle. They use to have a lifetime warranty on the sunroof including motor cables and leaks..


    Only advantage of having a sunroof is it strengthens the roof more that's it..

    a sunroof to a vehicle is about as invasive a process as i can think of. i really like mine but there too many things to go wrong and adding one wouldn't even be a consideration.
    sounds like op is in the market for a 1794 or a platinum.

    Limited also has the sunroof option. Hell, I saw a 2012 CM TRD RW edition with one the other year.

    From everything I have always read and been told, they are great as long as they are a factory option/factory installed. Not so great on leaks and wind whistling if installed after the fact.
