How To: remove windshield

get a hyper girl who wants to kick the windshield.. have her put on your boot instead of her flip flop.. stand back and watch.

I want to thank Snap-Ons badass coozie for being magnetic and convenient when you no longer have cup holders in the truck.

Could've swore I seen this on another Ranger Fourm Site, which may I mention it was very poorly put together. You Copied R-F but then bash it, your really going to attract people to your site by ranting about them.

"There's other *** **** like the Canadians are joining en masse( that's french Canadian for in large numbers, for the retarded), not that they're a problem. Just....WTF."

one of the panes on the back broke a while ago.. me slamming the passenger door made most of it fall outside

the other girl (not pictured) had the ax bounce off the windshield a few times and hit the sheet metal only i'm allowed to hurt sheet metal.. unless i direct someone else to drive my truck where it shouldn't

naw, its staying out.. the rest of the glass is coming out in a more civilized way hopefully tonight. Then its getting a cage in the next few months and i'll figure out the seating/storage/radio situation after that.
