    I live 2 hours from this city, so I left my vehicle there while attending a conference.

    It took two full work days, and $2100 (~$1650 USD). According to Webasto USA, there are only two options for installers in Alberta. I was VERY apprehensive to cut a 2' x 3' HOLE in the roof of my first new ($40K) ride :goingcrazy:... especially after reading some of the comments on my Got Sunroof thread poll here on Tacoma World. You be the judge...

    and now, for a bit of a... :rant:

    It turned out exactly as I had hoped! I didn't lose any features or functioning of the ceiling console, and the ceiling light was just moved back a bit - NO problem.

    Thanks to Dan and his team at CE Design! :yay:

    When I dropped the vehicle off, it was -25 C (-13 F), but, conveniently, when I picked it up, it was +9 C (48 F, for you Americanos), so it was open all the way home for 2 hours :cool:

    Go and get yours! :boink::thumbsup::cheers:

    Its a bicycle.
    this will be a MUST when i get my taco. unless the panoramic is back... then I'll get that.

    i likes the open-ness of a jeep... just not anything else. so this will be a nice compromise.

    That is great! The dual pane sunroof is great. We have it in one of our MINI's and just love it. That looks awesome! Keep us posted on any issues that you may or may not have. From the looks of it, it should be trouble free.

    How do they move the light back? Is it in the area now covered by the sunroof, and they just cut a new hole? Do they reuse any of the headliner or is it new material? Why the 2 vent looking things? Thanks for posting! Rep sent!
