Nice job on the sun roof man. That's alot of work involved to install something like that on a ford ranger standard cab. About how long did it take you to do that?

Sunroofs have no point to me. All you get is little air flow and the sun beating down on you.

Default Re: sun roof

I put a pop out one in my ranger. LOVE IT. Best mod to date!

With it open and the rear window open it's so awesome for air.

Had an issue with a leaky seal but that's because they didn't put enough sealant on the gasket from the factory. Once I fixed it no issues... If I had an extended cab I would have definitely gone electric. But this suits my needs perfectly fine.

It's a Newport 14x32" Perfect size if you have an OHC. If not you could go larger.
