Sunroof
 
Hey guys I was looking for suggestions on an idea i have. I love my 2005 cherokee but i've always wanted a vehicle with a sunroof.
well my car doesn't have one and I was wondering if its even possible to add an aftermarket sunroof to my 2005 wj.
Please, any suggestions are welcome.

of course....I would find a local sunroof shop and get some quotes. Do it right and go all power...not the silly oval shaped pop up

I would do my research first. I've seen some horror stories where shit leaked, it didn't work correctly, etc, etc.

Personally, I think it's a big waste of money. You're paying someone a lot of money to cut a whole in your roof, it doesn't increase the value of the vehicle (in fact I would run if I found out a car I was interested in had an aftermarket sunroof installed), and the potential for damage/failure/leaks/etc are MUCH higher than a factory sun roof.

I'm not trying to be negative nancy, but I would think long and hard about this. Hell, you probably won't even use it after a month.

For the amount you pay to have the install it could be worth the effort to find a similar model jeep with the sunroof and do a trade...

I don't know if I've ever seen an aftermarket sunroof NOT end in disaster.

I bet you could source all the oem parts and do it right. There are *some aftermarket ones that are good, but expect to pay $$$$. I wanted one in my GTO, but it was going to be ~$1200 or more (they made them for the Holden Monaro, which is what the GTO was, but US market got jipped), so decided it wasn't worth it. However, I do enjoy the one in the WK, since it was already that way.

I use to work at a local auto acc. shop and installed ALOT of power and manual sunroofs and never had one comeback. As long as the installer does it correctly you shouldnt have any problems.

I had an aftermarket popup sunroof on my car and it was fine, I never regretted doing it.
