in need of new windshield hinges

For my 87. One cracked and im scared to put the windshield back up as the stress on the other factory hinge my crack it too. I almost ordered the smittybilt ones but upon reading reviews on SB in general, it seems that a lot of their parts dont fit right. Should I go with RR? All I want is black, dont want stainless or anything. I have these RR mirror relocation brackets that I haven't installed yet due to the broken hinge. I will probably want a new set of lower door hinges also, since the windshield/upper door hinge will be new.

Don't really need new hinges that attach to the doors themselves as I plan to go with soft doors soon anyway.

These are the mirror relocation brackets I have:

these are the hinges I used as replacements for mine...they are heavier than most of the other aftermarket hinges and because of that they use the factory style flat head screws instead of the button heads that the thinner ones have to use. They also have the CJ style mirror mount screw holes already drilled and tapped into them.

Stay away from Kentrol. They're super thin and only last a couple years.

What brand are those hinges. The link doesn't seem to work. Takes me to the quadratec home page.

Will the mirror holes that are already drilled out work with my RR mirror relocation brackets?

strange... the link works for me...wonder why it won't work for you?

anyway they are made by Crown, here's the part #'s
Quadratec Part No: 23002.08
Manufacturer Part No: 546242425K

the holes are meant for CJ style mirror brackets...I'm not familiar with how the Rugged Ridge mounts work

Which one broke? I had one brake a couple of years ago, so I replaced them both. Still have the good one. It has been painted dark red. It's just taking up space. so it's yours for the cost of shipping if you are interested. Shoot me a pm if you are.
