fiberglass windshield frame

Found a fiberglass windshield frame, new for $75 obo. Sounds pretty good, or am i wrong? My current left side is rotted out, and the wiper hole has jammed several times, and the metal is getting softer. Will give out anytime I bet. A good replacement for the future?

Many say the 'glass is too flexible. Search for windshield frames and you should find some posts about them.

this is just my opinion, but i bought a fiberglass windshield frame and i did not like it one bit. i then bought a YJ frame on craigslist.

the yj frame requires you cut all of the defroster holes for the cj, but you would have to do that anyway with a new fiberglass windshield frame.

the wipers on a yj are much better than the cj wipers too.

Get a YJ frame instead, the glass ones are really flimsy.

95 xj bone stock for now
