Third times a charm. Glass is installed.

This is from the other day disassembling the truck to store while I finish the frame.

Nevermind. Half doors. Just ensure the slider is cracked

Are you going to tint the rear glass?

Yeah, it's got a light smoke color to it. But, it's getting tinted once the Jeep is drivable.

I am running full doors not half doors, so I will install some kind of vent of flap gasket like the tail gate has on a TJ.

The trucks looking awesome! Can someone explain why you need the vents in the first place. Windows in a car don't blow out when you shut the door.

To relieve the air pressure from closing the doors...
Cars have vents to relieve the pressure, they are hidden better

Hit the nail on the head. All vehicles have these pressure relief vents.

I'm learning something new here. It explains the vents behind the window of hard tops.

Ah, I should have thought of that. Figured there had to be a reason.

Gotta remember this is a Jeep. There not so air tight anyway. Plus there's 10 holes in the floor. 8 which I will plug with the JK plastic plugs.

I got to see the glass in person today. I have to say it looks great, and us just a light smoke color. I will get it tinted as soon as I can.

I got James's doors and fuel cell mount sprayed for the Pumpkin. I also finished bolting up the armor on the Truck cab. (Waited on hardware).

Guess I will prep the tub for bedliner after work Monday.
