Hey guys. How hard is this to do right? Seems simple enough but po has a tiny buckle on passenger side letting water in. Want to pull it sand, rust inhibit, reinstall myself. Anything I should know never having done this? Or should I just call a windshield company after treating it?

I've done it a couple times. I've always cracked the old glass though, it's easy to do so be careful. Putting in the new glass is easy. The rope truck didn't work for me either. Just use some thumb force and be sure not to bend the glass to much because it'll break a lot easier than others since its flat.

here is a thread I relied on when I replaced mine, unfortunately, as careful as I was, I still wound up breaking mine, check with where you would buy a new one. when I called to purchase another, the difference in me buying it and installing it (and probably breaking another and then buying a second one) was 20 bucks. I had the windshield off the jeep at the time because I had a guy making me a new frame out of one another guy had given me with less missing due to rusting away than mine. I took the frame to the glass shop and the guy put it in for 20 bucks right then and there.
everybody says it is easy, and, well it is, right up until it cracks and twenty bucks is a lot less than 80 for a second one and then a twenty or so to have it installed. something to consider:
