How to get the windows out? Any Ideas

I just got 95 with 145k it has bullet proof glass all around except the windshield and the drivers side door. The passenger side will go down but won't go back up unless you pull it up at the same time.
The rear Windows they took the small piece of glass that is next to the rear window that goes up and down. Then made it one solid piece of glass.(they don't go down at all.) The rear tailgate glass is so heavy the new shocks won't even hold it up.

Armored Soultions in Pittsfield, MA is the place most armored car companies use for refurbishing trucks. I wouldn't want to see the carnage caused by mods to accomodate bullet resistant glass in a Jeep...

its ok as long as it is water tight and I can roll down the windows, I got the truck for $200. Can't beat that, and the owner replaced the drivers side window with a regular one, seems to work ok needs a new motor. Thanks for the info

find another beater with regular doors,,, then sell the Br doors
we put BR glass in a building... we couldn't figure out why they wanted it.. it has efis and 5/8" sheet rock inside and out.. so unless you were in the window there was no protection

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

Like someone else said, just swap out the doors and rear hatch.

It would also be easier than changing all of the windows IMO.

I gotta ask, why the heck would this Jeep have bulletproof glass?


Everyone speaks like they've seen it before too.

Yep, those windows be nice in the city. Like to see the look on the car thief's face when the tire iron bounces off.

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
