honestly i would just take it to a local glass shop..you might be surprised at how cheap it would be to let a pro do it for you!! yeah i had a 3"BL and cranked front bars (#1's) i had to trim the lower valance in the lil corner there by tire....not much but just a hair..it grabbed at full lock in reverse was the only prob i had!

Hah gosh man, Ive had that happen - sliding sideways into someones yard.. but for me it was because of an oil slick, a extra low geared bronco with a locked rear end, and a sharp corner - going about 20 mphn around the corner, both tires spun out with no traction and it shot me sideways into a guys yard.. I hopped out because I noticed he was out there and let him know what I did.. he took a look and said it wasnt a biggy at all - so i slowly crawled out of his yard and kept on my way!

just order the one off ebay. it was like $21 shipped. it has instruction with it and everything. took 20 minutes to do. i used a screw driver to get the old glass out and put the new glass in with the sticky pads it came with. looks factory. no problems what so ever.

so what do you think I should do when I get mine mounted at sears, liek to prevent them from rubbing when they test drive?

That sucks, man. Seriously. Glad it wasn't too bad.

By the way, you know what else sucks? typing "n" instead of "and". It's annoying as **** to read, LOL.

no you dont have to do anything to the plastic inner fender (spash shield) and my front end was a lil higher than my rear until it sagged a lil bit...but you just trim that lower valance and your all good!!
