Sunroof, 10 years no leaks.
Window is manually removeable, pulled from some car. about 3x2 feet, round edges, black trim.
Helps with light a lot.
I used a sawzall. The hard top fibreglass makes a mess.

They did not have the option for it, but this is the Gobi rack for the Jeep XJ. It is the most expensive, but I will say it is 100% worth it. I have hit trees with it and stuff, and nothing it wrong with it. Has a tone of room, and looks sick. I got all the extras with the Highlift jack mount, axe & shovel mount, and jerry can mounts. I ended up breaking the high lift mount because it got hung up on a tree. Has spots for 6 lights on it.

Only rack on the market with front removale floor section for sun roof. Highest side rails on the market. Only rack with rool over rating protection. Standard features include: brackets for mounting, welded shovel and axe brackets, welded high lift mounts, 6 welded light mounts(4 front, 2 rear), welded spare tire carier! Check them out!

My Cherokee did not come with the crossbars, so I decided to weld some up. I knew a local teacher in a vocational school and he let me use the mig welder and some scrap stock. I used 2" angle welded to either end of 2" square tube stock. after 16 welds and some grinding I was done. To mount it I took some 1" bar stock and cut 2.5" - 3" sections and tapped them for 3/8" bolts. I used those bars and the bolts as a makeshift clamp to hold the bars onto my roof. I used rustoleum paint to coat it. After proper prep and priming it still chips off. The only thing I would do differently is to use a better paint.

This is a Defender roof rack, couldn't find a selection for it. After removing what was left of the factory rails and mounting it through the roof into the frame (after repairing the holes) it is now solid and works well.
