My bud does some seriously nice fab work, it's his retirement entertainment to fab stuff for his Jeep. The mounting plate for the ram came out very nice

Man that came over quick on him. I know he froze and it's easy to say after the fact but just a tap of throttle could have saved that.... looks to be a badass YJ, but I don't think the 200lb front bumper helped much in that situation! Looks like it took it well and he's in good spirits over it.

Poor choice of line, lack of flex is what started it, hammering the throttle could have saved it I think

Picked up two of these 65 bucks a pop sales tax included, not bad at all.
Now I can see where the hell I am going part of the time

Are yours all pitted? Or cracked? Mine isn't cracked but is pitted and impossible to clean. Been thinking about getting a new one. That's cheap! You going to attempt the install???? Working with glass is creepy.

I'll glue them in myself yeah.
One is cracked, the other is plexiglass and attracts to much dust

Best quote I had gooten was 150 installed, it isn't all that hard to do once you fold the windshield down. You can cut the urethane fairly easily from the back that way

Sure, biggest pain is to cut the sealant. Everything else is cake.
