Need help finding replacement Sunroof

I have an ‘07 Classic with the suicide back doors.
Over the weekend my headliner filled up with water. Thought it was the drains. Cleaned those out and still got water in the headliner.
The glass did not look centered in the opening. So I adjusted it. Then I noticed that all of the plastic rails and slides are cracked most of the way through.

Who has the new rail assembly and gasket for the glass.

I have found lots of parts for the 07.5 but not the Classic.

Can someone get me pointed in the right direction?

Thank you!

im not 100% sure what part you are looking for, however i am curious if you are searching for a 2007 part for your truck. If so, you would probably get better search results searching it as an 06 since most searches consider the 07 to be the new body. Anything 05-06 will for sure fit, almost all, if not all 03 -06 parts will fit, and most parts from 01 up will fit. The body changed very little from 2000 to 2007, there was some electrical changes, and the headlights changed but interior parts short of the dash are likely to interchange. mechanical parts from a 05,06,07 are sure to fit your truck though, 04 is iffy.

Very well could be 'dealer only' for that being as there may not have been enough demand for the aftermarket to pick it up as a serviceable part

Ouch! That’s a chunk of change.
My brother found a used one on Car Part. I am worried that it will have the same issues that I have now.
Any input on used?

I have read some have seen the plastic slides were cracked new out of box. Several years ago i noticed mine were cracked, i was able to shut mine and I haven't opened it since. I also have read that some have taken it to a glass shop to have the seal replaced on the glass. I have been researching this for many years, the price doesn't justify the option repair. I thought about taking the slides out and cast them in aluminum or would a CNC work. Basically, its just a bad design.

I would be worried that used would have the same problem. If it is something you hardly used, I would look into getting the glass sealed correctly and just unplug the switch to not move it again. Did this on my mom's old Camry.

I have considered gluing it shut a lot. Sure it’s nice having the sunroof but the windows still roll down and exhausts the heat too.

It figures that I would start having issues with it. I just paid it off. 🤪

Yeah just dont silicon or caulk it. I would say us window urethane. Pull the glass, clean everything real good, run small bead slightly above shut position. Slide glass in bolt back up.

My father, bless that man. He ran all over the place trying to find one for me. He ended up driving 85 miles away and picked one up from an ‘05 Yukon Denali XL.

The glass in my truck is 17” long and the Yukon glass is something like 18.5” long.

It was very hard telling him that it would not fit my truck.

Hopefully we can get his money back.

I’m going to BBQ him some dinner and take him out fishing.
