    In my experience.... all sunroofs will eventually leak.

    I don't know about the JCWhitney sunroofs, my experience comes from a mid-80's S-10 Blazer with a sunroof. I assume that if installed correctly and taken care of, a JCWhitney sunroof will probably not leak.

    So far in my living room it's leak free. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif I bought a new one for $45 (w/shipping) bucks off this guy. It looks nice enough for the price. It might leak but then again my truck does now without it so nothing will change there. I plan to seal it really well when I install it and use some nice quality sealer like silicon or something. The sunroof is only as good as the quality of the install. You do a crap install you get crap results....

    Bryan,

    I'd say if you get it get a tube of windshield sealer to use to seal around it, since that rubber won't bond to much else, especially silicone.
