I originally bought this to replace the power sunroof on my ranger that was broken. Since they were slightly different in frame design and shape it would not work. It comes with everything needed to install and is rather simple. This is a very nice sunroof and is the perfect size for the truck. I am asking 100 plus the shipping. I will post a picture soon. Here is a picture and details on the item.
I will say that aside from cutting the headliner. It shouldn't be too hard at all on a single cab. I don't know if the bracing is the same on the extended cab. There is only one brace that runs front to rear on the ranger right in the middle of the truck. I can send all the needed measurements to get it squarely installed since I already have a hole that size in my roof.
It would work out something like this. You would remove the headliner, then either remove the seats (i recommend it) or cover them with a welding blanket, Then the brace in the middle needs to be removed, Using a cutoff saw. Then time to square up the template. I recommend putting painters tape on the roof to protect it from the saw first and then laying out the template, then mark it on the painters tape, then take a 1/2 inch drill bit and drill a starting point, now take a sheetmetal saw (looks like a small sawzall except air powered) start carefully cutting the hole out. Now I suppose if you were really careful you could use a dremel with cutoff wheels but it may take some time. You just need patience to do it. After the hole it cut the rest is history. It won't take long to install the glass roof.
For the headliner use the template and mark the topside of the headliner shell. Then carefully cut that out. Done. You can get some edge moulding for a finished look. I have seen it in a wide range of colors so you can match your interior.
A sun-roof would be an awesome addition to my truck.....hmmmmm....
I have thought of this too for some time. I think it would be awesome! The only thing I worry about is the structure of the cab and the ridgetity of the cab as well. I mean it's already weakend but the 4 door aspect I would think...Then adding the sunroof would make it even weaker I would think? I'm not sure though. RockeredRanger have you ever had one installed on a ranger before? If so did it do just fine???
