It sounds like an aftermarket top... Factory tops don't have sunroofs.

If it is an ad, post a link/picture. Just trying to figure out what brand it may be. It is not factory if does not have defroster. I don't know of an aftermarket top that has just a wiper. (Bestop, Bull Dawg, Steelhorse)

The sunroof, is it an actual glass sunroof or a removable panel/front section? There are a number of people who have cut hard tops and added glass pop-up type sunroofs. There are two brands that have removable panels, Bestop and Steelhorse (no longer made)

That could be a factory hardtop with an aftermarket sunroof. And the rear glass could be a replacement without the defroster. If so, there should be defroster connecters protruding from the top where the top corners of the back glass rest.

I cannot tell from the picture. If it does not have side vents behind the side windows it is a later model (03-06?) top.

The sunroof is nice, but it will make the top heavier to lift.

That top doesn't look like it has a sunroof, and the ad doesn't say whether it has defroster or not, but it looks like a factory hard top, and for it to come with a soft top at that price, you might want to go ahead and buy it.

Yeah, when you posted the link, I looked at it and thought ... what sunroof LOL ... but I could see where you were coming from... you might wan't to see if it does have rear defrost because the way the glass is laying I can't tell from that pic.

heres a part of his email to me..."There is one small corner chip in the back which doesn't affect the fit or cause leaks, the wiper motor and arm are there but there is no pig tail. It does not come with rear window defrost." There are no cracks.

Aww K ... well, it's still a good deal, especially with it coming with a soft top ... even if you don't need it, you could always re sell it or if it's better than your soft top you could sell your old one.

seems reasonable-not sure but I think I see vents on driver's side by back window? If you have vents in tailgate will it allow too much flow?
