Windshield Hinges

Does anybody know of a manufacture that produces a Windshield Hing that is the same thickness and the original? All I can find are about 1/4 the thickness as the original.
Olympic quit making them about 7 years ago. They're all out.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Any Chrysler dealership will get you orginals, but they're not cheap...like 70bucks a piece.

When I heard that, I went for stainless steel hinges from 4wd.com and they mounted perfectly.

Have you considered stainless?

Before you say, "I don't want the shiney, stainless look...", realize that they can be scuffed up and painted to match your jeep.
