Already drilled

Drained out nicely. Also the pump is coming on for 2 seconds or so now when the door is open after drying the board out. Its toast of course. I ordered a replacement and it should be here in a few days. I still plan on converting it to non air eventually but my ocd wants to make it work first....

Yep, that looks very familiar. At least the modules are cheap from eBay or breaker. BTW, if the rain is hard enough and long enough, it will overwhelm the sunroof drains. We had flooding rain for 3 or 4 days straight to kill mine. Never had a problem again after drilling a few 1/8" ish sized holes in key areas of the tray.

Crowz,

Could you or others who have drilled these strategically positioned water draining holes, provide a picture showing where you drilled them?

Thanks,

Mike

If I can remember when I put the replacement module in Thursday or so I will take some pics of where I drilled the holes.

I hope so too !


Friends and family keep stopping by trying to buy it from me. I need a "Its not for sale" sign for it


The two prevailing arguments I keep getting are "You don't need 3 x5's so I'll take it off your hands for $x" or "It looks to nice to use in place of the F150 you just need to sell it to me for x over what you paid before you ruin it offroad".
