Windshield replacement in Hudson valley NY
Well it never seems to end. My Heep is literally emptying my pockets! Here is a brief history and I am sure some of you can relate. I needed a new seat, got one. radiator blew got new one. then the water pump blew ( I know should have replaced that with the radiator) got a new one well I guess I forgot to hook the nose/hood clamps back on so at 55 MPH my hood pops open and smashes my wind shield! Since I made the repairs of the radiator and water pump I was only able to put 30 miles on and ow I am off the road again!! It seems as soon as get it road worthy it leaps out and punches me in the face. So basically I am looking the going rate or for a decent priced windshield place or if this is something I can do on my own?? I am also looking for a a new(to me) hood my recent repairs have dwindle my jeep funds so I am looking to trade 2 decent sahara front seats and rear all 3 in good shape and a ok looking drivers front fender
Im pretty sure NY requires all insurance companies offer full replacement on windhsieldrfage it is called I believe. I would give your insurance a company a call and see. I know I never paid for one when I lived there for 20 years.....Might have been my IC though...

Thank you for all the responses. I did check with my insurance and well it is NOT covered I only have basic coverage. that does not include any glass. I have some leads I can get the glass for $80 and install it myself or have the guy do it for $65 ( he is a certified mechanic at a jeep dealership, just does side jobs for jeepers) I did get a quote from safelite auto glass at $225 still need a new hood the hood is bent pretty good and creased. I could bend it back but it will look like crap for a while. I am just recover from the last $500 bucks I spent on it in the last 2 weeks, man does this thing add up. I really do not want to make a list and see how much I have spent in the last 2 years.
$300XJwith250K has hooked me up and did a fantastic job Brian is superb glass tech and did a great job for me at my house. If you ever need glass work and in the Hudson Valley I would give him a shout. Thanks once again back on the road again woooo hooooooo!

In chicago glass installed at ur home. they come to you for $135. watch craigslist for body parts. or maybe run with it and save up for cj front clip. i like my square but its an option. or tube it.
