Mine is installed, but I will simply offer this piece of advice which was in another thread. Do not do this project by measuring your curb from the top of the existing skylight. You must remove the old one and measure not only on the top of the curb but at different vertical heights on the curb. Then have a new skylight fabricated with enough clearance.

So, do you recall the measurements? Maybe the folks with your year AS have similar curb measurements?

So,.. do you like them or too early to tell?

You will need 22 58" x 22 5/8" to fit, most likely. But here is the rub. AS puts welds on the curb corners and depending on the welder, those dimensions may or may not work. I had to file down welds and still had a fit problem. As I said the only way to be sure is to measure before you order.
The Maxim is far superior to the original but I had some fit problems that were partly their fault and partly mine. I am still in physical pain from the work I had to do yesterday. Ask me again in a month.
