the problem with putting an aftermarket moonroof is putting a hole in a part of your car, where the factory hadn't planned one.

It is rarely the sunroof that is the weak link in the process. it severly reduces the aftermarket value of your car, and will almost certainly at some point either leak water or air or rust/bubble around the edges.

secondly, the new generation of rex, is even harder and more risky to perform this task, as there is a reinforced steel beam around the top of the cabin, which is conveniently plaved to save your life in a roll, but inconveniently placed as per a sunroof. in fact, if one even fits at all, it will only be a manual tilt type rather than a filly functional silde mechanism(ruling out the 2.5 option). but chances are, to make one fit it will also be oddly placed forward in the cabin, and too close to the windshield to be feasable. (higher risk of leaks and instabiliy from the air pressure on the car there, causing flex and give where there shouldnt be any)

i want one too, but your insurance check will be far friendlier to your wallet with a steel roll bar rather than an aftermarket sunroof!

:( awwwwwww im bummed to hear that
but i guess ure right. i dint really know much about the structure of the roof and if it does have beams to reinforce rolling then let it be. but the one thing i liked about the old rs is the roof it was dope, moonroof and power sunroof 2 in 1. well i gues its just a few thousand im saving for labour and parts :D
theres always something else to do ;)
