Arrow heavy duty mods?

has anybody ever thought of doing or have done something big, something different...

im thinking of setting up an automatic tailgate opener and closer, just like the lexus rx400h has... maybe a panoramic moonroof going all the way to the third row.

my question is, has anybody ever done somthing huge like that? pics?

uh... the auto tailgate is an optioin from teh factory on later model commanders..


the Panoramic roof would be WAAAAYY too complex to be worth it.

A) you'd remove structural components to teh roof, so if you ever got in a wreck, good luck getting insurance to pay for that.
B) with our 'stadium seating' the roof isn't even flat. The cost of a custom fit piece of glass woudl be as much as your truck

The only possible way I could think of, if you're cool with part A, would be to do something like a Webasto canvas top. (think old school beetle roof) I looked into doing that on my old Protege5, and woudl have cost about $1500..

It wouldn't be a unique mod but, it would be a nice option for you.

Hmm, I wonder how hard it would be to put the power on my liftgate...


Has anybody else done any big mods? I don't think stickers count. Haha
