good or no good? I know they will leek but what about loosing strength in the roof?
I had a 76 truck that had a sun roof and after off road itd leak from time to time, not worth the trouble in my opionion.
If you were making a show rig or street rig I would say go for it, but for a wheelin' rig I would not. It puts an awful lot of stress on the glass and increases your chances of leaking. It's your rig, so you can do it, but if it were mine and I was wheelin', I wouldn't.

I had one on my other body and it never gave me any major problems. It was the kind that pops up like the stock ones on GM cars so it just had a rubber seat that the glass sat on. If I was wheeling and I didn't want to take the glass out, I just left the handle unlocked and it took the strain of the glass. I never had any problems with it leaking at all. I pulled the sunroof out of the old body during the swap so one of these days I might get around to putting it back in. I miss my sunroof, it's about as close as you can get a 2nd gen to the full topless feel without inolving a sawzall

MY buddy has a sunroff on his 4runner with no problems other that leaking. His is the kind the has an electric motor that slides. So far it has held up. The only thinkg I have noticed when riding with him is when he tweaks out the roof creaks. That kind of scares me.
