Aftermarket sunroof in a Grand Cherokee

Anybody have any experiences with an aftermarket sunroof?

The gf is planning on taking advantage of the "One Week to Deal" offers that Jeep is making this weekend, but she can't find a Grand Cherokee exactly like she wants. The closest she has found is lacking a sunroof, and the dealer wants to install one. I've never heard a good story about an aftermarked sunroof, but I don't know anyone who's had one installed lately.

What do y'all think? Have they progressed any, or are they still the leak-prone disasters that I've always heard them to be?

IMO, I would keep looking. I have an aftermarket sunroof in my Cherokee. It has leaked once and it has not opened and closed properly for 10 years after 4 trips to the various installers. Also, the quality and integration of the aftermarket sunroof is not as good.

I know this is a very old thread, but worthy of a response for everyone's knowledge...

I think its very dependent on the company doing the install for the dealership. I have had GREAT experiences with a local place that uses Hollandia sunroofs in Grand Cherokees. Hollandia is the company that actually makes the roof for the Liberty, Compass and many other Jeep and Chrysler vehicles. their 700 series in 24" width is a perfect fit and the JGC is actually a very EASY install for a well trained person to conduct. They usually come with a 3yr/36k warranty and lifetime installation guarantee which would cover the mechanics of the roof for the former and the leak proof aspect for life.
