    It had one in it when I bought it, but while on a test drive up the road, it blew out...(I only had it sitting on top just to keep the dust out and forgot about it) I tried to find one to drop back in, but couldnt. I finally bought one that was bigger, and just enlarged the hole using the template. It wasactually pretty easy, but I was a little scared, you know, that sheetmetal/sawzall mixture anxiety until the first cut. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif It doesnt leak at all. The glass comes out and the window latches really seal it up good.

    I think its an SFC or something like that.

    cool, thanks for the skinny... AFAIK jc whiteney only sells one sunroof that fits an S-10 so it shouldnt be to hard to find it. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif neat that u can pull the glass. I am getting a rear window that is removable also... then all I need is a speed-glass windshield and removeable doors and my s-10/k5 hybrid would be nice n light on the trail. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
