POP up sunroof on AU Ute?

Different, can't say I've seen it done before. Could be the radius of the roof. I have heard them leaking a bit and causing premature rusting.

Re: pop up sunroof

personal taste but I have seen them on earlier model utes and I reckon they look obviously aftermarket. And, if not installed correctly, they will leak and cause rust. I would also check with an engineer to make sure it would not affect the integrity of the vehicle - really not sure about this last point.

Re: pop up sunroof

I've seem an Au with one. Looked pretty good. Can't remember which mag i saw it in but the thing had all the body kit bits. I wanted one at one stage then got over it. I switched to the idea that the rear window should roll down. Similar to some model Honda CRX's.

The cabin in the ute is enough of a glass house and it's not like anyone can stick thier heads out without standing on you or your seats.

Go the roll down rear window!!!!

Re: pop up sunroof

i think you should keep your rear window tom, once that turbo is installed youll need it to stop things flying out the back as u accelerate!!!
