An Easier Way?

Hey guys! I have an XJ i am getting set up as a trail only jeep. just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on fixing this without having to take the dash all out. I'm just trying to get it to where a windshield will half seal on that edge.

I was thinking maybe if i could cut a hole in the bracket in the dash, to put a pipe and bottle jack up in there and jack it back up to where it should be. I think its smashed down about an inch or two.

... a tree fell on it, if anyones wondering

Pull the Wiper grill off to get a better Idea how bad it really is. That a pretty tough area. The glass is a glue in and it might be worth asking a windshield shop if the gap can be filled before you start hacking.


Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it

It's a pretty big gap. Like at least an inch or two. But my brother works at a windshield shop. And we thought about filling the gap with silicone and seeing what happens. If only the tree could've fallen like 6 inches farther up
