that and when i laid the windshield down to install my cage, it was just tall enough to crack my windshield.


so, its gone. anyone?
Not to hi-jack, but I have to comment: Where the scratch on the hood is couldn't possibly have come from your windshield or roof. It's too low and would be laying "open" and untouched over the cowl when the hood's leaned back. As for your window. That's strange how my hood never comes close to hitting glass when I lean it against the top of the windshield frame. How hard are you letting the hood drop against the top of the windshield frame if it cracked the windshield?

To the OP: I have an 03, so not the same design as yours. But I wanted to clean up the cabin air when running over many dusty roads in the summer. I found this: Clean Air Scoop with Filter, Jeep, Wrangler, TJ, LJ, Rubicon, Unlimited, Cabin filter

So instead of laying out stupid money for something I could fab myself, I used jay cloths tightly stretched underneath the vents (you could also buy flat K&N filters and somehow attach them underneath the vents in the cowl). I then put a womans knee high stocking over the stock intake box inside the cowl. It's stretchy enough that it stays in place. Voila! Clean cabin air and no need to buy expensive hood/cowl scoops.

Just my :2c:

P.S. - Bottom pic of the cracked windshield: You have a RHD?

That scratch on the hood came from laying the hood back on the glass. The scratch was created by the cowl that was on there previously.

I have a 97 too, but am replacing it with a 98+ cowl. I'll paint it and any cowl to match.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.
