Roof rack/cage

I've been seeing a lot of trucks with the roof racks or cages on them on the road. I like the look an ability to add lights to them. But most take up the entire roof. Will I be able to use my sunroof with one of these?

i dont see why any roof rack would prevent you from using the sunroof, when you open it cracked it only lifts up about 2 inches at most, and to completely open it it slides down and into the headliner,

unless you want an unobstructed view out of it.

then you could search for a reg cab roof rack and mount it over the rear cab part.

That's what I was thinking and hoping to hear. I don't sit an stare out my roof really. So view isn't much important. I do leave the shade open as much as possible. I mainly want something to mount a traffic advisor bar and LED spots for working at night or off roading. But don't really want my cab lights covered as I am changing them to Atomik strobing LED.

I have the Yakima Mega Warrior roof rack.

You will be able to use the sunroof 100%, just when you look up you'll see what ever you are carrying.
