Fixed window "hopefully"

Used Gorilla Glue epoxy to make sure the front passenger glass stays in the stupid clips. Results in in two days. Going to give it extra time to cure due to cold weather.

Got quotes to replace the windshield. I got some competitive prices: 140$ at the cheapest and 350$ at the most. Though, I am expecting a few more quotes.

God I remember when I did that, at about 201,000 for me lol. She actually handled it pretty well and when I looked down at the dash I just remember going "Holy F#$% you can still use that part of the speedometer!?" .

Discovered my transmission pan fix seems like it's 99% leak free from the pan itself. However the drain plug I added is leaking. But it's not leaking from the bung like you'd expect, it's leaking from the actual plug. Looks like that little ****ty o-ring that came with the kit instead of a real washer isn't cutting it. It's just leaking enough to be annoying. It's a cheap an easy fix, a copper washer and some teflon paste should fix it... But I really don't feel like draining my atf again .

I got mine replaced at Safelite. No more leaks and it's a pretty good quality windshield. I got a deal at $160 there. A coworker is really good friends with one of the girls who works there and she cut me the family discount. We've also brought them a handful of work vehicles with stupid expensive windshield replacements. I'd say $140 is going to be the cheapest you're going to find. Just make sure they do quality work for that price.

Picked up a hood from the junkyard. $45 And the paint looks better than the old one. No more rotten hood.

Don't your insurance cover that? I've always Jus called them for windshields. When the one in my truck started leaking real bad I set up the appointment, then smashed it the morning they came out. sshh!

Depends on what your deductible is, if the claim will raise your rates, and what plan/company you use.
When I did my old truck's windshield I opted to pay for it myself because I'd end up paying more in the long run.

Yeah I was impressed with mine, was doing 5mpg holding at 100mph too good considering it's aerodynamically similar to a brick.


I've got bubbles on the dipstick for my ATF when I last checked the level. level is good, and transmission shifts are firm I'd be changing the washer now, might as well. you won't loose that much ATF if you're quick


As for the windshield thing, a windshield claim on my insurance doesn't affect no claims bonus chip repairs are free and a replacement screen is only £75 so that's about, what, $120?


Also, 9 times outta 10 it's pilkington glass too so not cheap **** glass usually.

Mines never affected my rate. One a yr freebee. Never needed that many but its nice to know its there. Haven't needed one in at least 7yrs.

Replaced both steering wheels with ones from the JY without rips in the leather!

Replaced the side markers and turns I bashed in on the trail jeep.

New JY rear diff cover and paint for the trail jeep since I bent the original one draggin my *** across the rocks. Both rear diffs got new royal purple 75-140. Which fixed the niners lsd problems!

Just replaced my rear lower control arms. One of the bushings fell right out of the arm when I got the bolts out!

And WOW what a difference! Steering feels much tighter and no more drift!
