    Can someone measure their YJ windshield glass for me please?

    Jeep isn't here, need to know the dimentions (height & width) for the windshield glass. Tried Google but my wireless sucks and I'm not getting anywhere with it.

    Many Thanks!!

    16.25" x 54.5" is the size of the blanks I use for plastic windshields

    If you are ordering a sheet I am interested in a Lexan windshield for my TJ

    I get confused once numbers get bigger than I can count on my appendages. I'm only good up to 21!
    one quarter turn before something breaks is a good torque spec.

    based on a few years experience I would use either Lexan MR10-2 or Makralon 15 in 5.5mm thick . These are abrasion resistant on both sides as well as UV resistant. Not cheap but worth it unless you want to change your scratched or yellow windshield every year or more

    Yep, just lay the template ( old glass ) over the sheet and draw out with a sharpy. Cut with a jig saw or band saw close to shape and finish with a flap disc on an angle grinder, does not take long at all.

    Cool. I'll ask about what Lexan my guy is using. Honestly I didn't know there were different types but in thinking about that now it's gotta be UV stuff as it's from a sign manufacturer. They also did some protective window covers for electronic stores, so it's pretty tough stuff.

    if you use the shitty lexan you can cover it with a few layers of tear-offs
