That's real specific...

Cool man. I have been thinking about doing this mod, but I am kinda leery of cutting my headliner and doing the wiring.

It was really hard, I really wanted his truck. I wouldn't have had to finance anything but when I drove up to Hartford and saw this truck, I fell in love.

The all black interior, the manual tranny and t-case, the resemblance to my old truck. I couldn't resist. I'm not usually one for impulse buys(okay, so yes I am) but I just had to have this truck! The manual transmission was the #1 thing on my list which was the only con about Maurice's truck. Other than that it's perfect! Besides, I woulda whooped up on it lol. I'd hate to ruin that pretty beast. I'm dreading the day this truck gets it's first offroad scar.....as my old one had quite a few.

So.......this brings up a good point. All I was thinking was yeah, this is an awesome deal with everything included, I can wire something to this switch.

Anyone got any ideas?? And no...there's no sunroof....ever. lol

Take a look at those two rolled trucks from three weeks ago(hpyford and the b-series). I thought a sunroof would be cool until I saw those pics and I'm not in the market to figure out some kind of half a$$'d support system for the cab roof. I wanna make this truck more utilitarian less show. Not interested in sinking money into anything that doesn't serve a real purpose.

Couldn't I use a dif switch? I'm sure I'll find something. I'd like to put some rockers on there too for other purposes.

I use to have a switch on my 95 souped up escort to kill the tails when the cops would chase me up the backwood trails haha. don't plan on doing much of that in this truck. I could def outrun em in the backwoods with this thing though.

anyone know exactly how the switch works??

When you press it one way, the sunroof opens. When you press it the other way, the sunroof closes...

Probably similar to the window switches?

It has 5 wires hooked up to it. I dunno what they are for, and I don't even remember what year expo mine is outta.

I'm not messing with it. If you do, I would reccomend getting a whole nother wiring setup for it.

Maybe bob knows?
