Here is the Bee with a hole in the roof. The overhead console had to be cut in half and those visor recesses are a nightmare. I must confess that I bailed out on the headliner and had a “upholstery” friend save me. Overall I am pleased. The headliner is nice but not quite perfect due to all of the obstacles. As with the 96 Ram, I still think that this is my favorite upgrade to the truck. Nothing brings light and fresh air into a dark cab like a hole in the roof. You can run 70 mph + with fresh air and almost no noise. I like the black glass on Yellow contrast also. If I can help anybody considering this modification - let me know and I'll do what I can.

Aftermarktet sunroofs are always a pain, and has a very high percentage for something to go wrong, or definately leaking

Today’s sunroofs are very different than the ones from a few years back. A Pep Boys special might give you trouble but a professional grade sunroof should not have any issues, and they have warranties. I have never had a sunroof leak and I have put in my share. I own a window tinting shop and I also do other small modifications as well (spoilers, graphics, toneau covers). Because I own a business I can buy the “professional” quality sunroofs. I don’t think the wholesalers will sell to private parties. Based on that I would suggest that if you have not done this before, and the difficulty of getting a good sunroof, you would be better of having it installed. The curved roof, overhead console, and visor recesses really complicate this job. One option is to do what I did and install the roof, but take it to an upholstery shop for the headliner work. I tried the headliner and realized that this time I was in over my head (ha ha). This one is a Webasto and I think it said 3630. It is not as nice as the one in the 1996 Ram but that one has been discontinued. To have a professional do the whole job should cost about $800. I think it is the best mod you can do but I’m sure people will argue the point.
Good luck - JB
