    yes on my 1986 by the "stretch forming corp" with the removable shade (mainly wanted to stop the light from the rollbars entering cab causing self inflicted rear view mirror blinding)...don't accidentally cut your sun visor like i did (glad it was the passenger side)...pics of pop-up removable sunroof in my 86 johnbaker album.

    Be careful cutting roof metal, it's so thin and can be dented easily by leaning on it as your cutting or afterwards. Remove the headliner if you can before the cut.

    Just grab one from a 1G DSM. They fit everything. The 2G Talon is powered and is also a drop in.

    I was going to add one to mine, but changed my mind on it. It wouldnt fit right with my roll cage.

    I don't think a 1g DSM one is big enough. The one I ordered is 15x33. It'll be almost the whole roof lol

    Definitely have to post up some pictures of the install and finished product, looks like a breeze to put in, and should be a nice addition.

    I think im going to do a write up on it. Just because when I was searching I couldn't find one. That way if anyone else does it they'll have some guidelines.

    I got the same sun roof except in the 20"x32" was super easy to install. Fined where you want it to sit, find center, lay out template that comes with it, trace with a sharpe (red, black or silver depending on body color) Drill a hole in the roof somewhere inside the line(step drill works good for this), Use a jigsaw with a fine tooth metal saw (Plasma,Tin Snips, die grinder) and carefully cut out the center section. Put the top ring onto the truck then lift up slightly and use window urathain not the crap tape they give you, put the bottom ring on loosely with the screws, let the top ring down into the urathain then start tightening the screws from the center out in an X pattern. Once the Urathain is dry can go around the edge and cut the excess off. Inside you put the screw strip on and you're done.

    If you have a roof liner after you use the template on the roof drill a small hole in each corner, from inside use a straight edge and cut the liner between the holes. The roof liner gets trapped between the lower ring and the upper ring top keep it in place.

    This is what mine looks like looking up

    Thats the kinda reply I was hoping for! Do you ever have any problems with leaks? How's the airflow with the windows down? Im tired of the feeling like I'm in a wind tunnel with the windows down. Lok

    No leaks and been in a few real bad down pores. that's why I said urathane not the butal strip that comes with the kit. I drive with the windows down all the time and the roof open (3-60 A/C... 3 windows open doing 60 mph) the air flows down the front window and in front of the dash keeping the cab cool even on a hot day (OK Camoit the days its not snowing here ) The wind is reduced with the roof open

    What you want is the rear window Pennyman1 has. It's a bending rear window. Extremely rare for these trucks.

    OK guys so I know I said I was gonna do a writeup.... but there's really no need to. The kit is EXTREMELY simple. All you really need is common sense. Cut your hole where you want it And drop in the sunroof. That's pretty much it. The hole doesn't even need to be perfect because it seals from the top of the roof, not the edges of the hole. If you guys ever have any questions feel free to ask. Pictures to come of I can figure out how to upload them lol

    I really wanna see a picture of the one you got. I'm thinking about ordering one. I believe that there is info on uploading pictures in the FAQ section.

    The best part of it all is the way the air moves through my truck now. Keeps my legs nice and cool now And it no longer feels like I'm in a wind tunnel with the window down Lol. The only problem is when you remove the glass completely, there's a terrible "helicopter" noise. So if anyone does this plan to only pop the glass up. Because the noise is unbareable when removed.

    Putting a sunroof wind deflector on will eliminate that helicopter sound, or at least help minimize it.
