i was outside trying to pull the tranny out of my motorhome and as usuall there is gun fire in the distance. when all of a sudden my rear window in the hardtop explodes! it really wasnt in line with the location of the gun fire and im not sure if a bullet is what caused it. where is the best place to get replacement glass cheaply. or can i put a piece of plexyglass in? i should have traded mrb when i had the chance. it might be cheaper to get a soft top.

you can here shooting almost daily. no big deal. theres a lot of deer and turkys running around and a lot of people are out of work so i think that there is more than target practice going on.

The cheapest route would be pexiglass at just about any hardware store. Replacement glass also should not be that expensive since it is a flat piece and tempered. Most auto glass places would have prices for you.

It makes that little rub I got on the Rubicon look like nothing.

So I'm cutting my tub in half....and doing a cab conversion.....do to rust the back part of my tub isn't salvagable without a ton of work that I'm not willing to do. SO anyways I'm going to cut the far back part of the tub and cut the tub behind the doors then weld the back corners behind the doors.....I have plenty of metal to do all of this so what the hell rite? Anywho I'm going to try fiberglass patching or whatever my hard top I'm going to cut it as seen in the picture and then try to put it back together should be interesting but this is the current plan...for the back of the jeep I'm planning on doing probably like a 18" stretch and doing a flat bed.... anywho yea thoughts?
