    Okay, I have yet another question. I would like to have a sunroof or moonroof put in my tacoma. Has anyone had this done on their truck? :confused:Is this a wise decision? Does anyone know where I would go to have this done professionally?

    to be determined
    it's never a good idea to have a sunroof put in where there wasn't one before. it's near impossible to get it sealed up enough to avoid it leaking like crazy.

    I don't mean to hijack, but I have a question about my sunroof. It came factory(it's a 99 limited) How do I get it out? Or does it just pop up and not come out?

    So none of the tacoma's have a "sunroof" just a "moonroof" ? I could have swore that thing would come out some how, I just didn't want to mess with it and screw it up.

    I had a dealer the dealer install a full function sunroof when I purchased my truck new. At the time the factory option was the pop-up type of moonroof and I figured with the double cab I would be able to have a full function (tilt& slide) sunroof. The dealer had a Webasto sunroof http://www.webastoshowroom.com/6_700info.html installed, in 2001 it was about $1000 installed but it has allways worked great and has never leaked. When it comes to aftermarket add-ons you get what you pay for. With a sunroof better to have it professionally installed with a guarantee.

    Did anyone ever explain to you how to remove your factory moonroof? It is really simple.

    We had one after market power sun roof installed in our 01- Honda CRV, the cost was about $1200, never leaked, no rust where they cut the roof, the manufacture of the sun roof is a supplier to auto manufactures, if memory serves me right at that time there were only 2 major suppliers, the interior ( head linner ) looks as if it was a factory install, not at all disappointed in the quaility of the product or install.
