if your truck is insured, and hopefully it is, there is no deductable for that sort of thing so go claim it and gt it fixed asap its free. I dunno about you but my local Glass DR. or whoever gives away a free box of steaks with every windsheild it's like breaking it is a good thing!

the truck needs some work done before i add the AAL in the rear (windshield, new body attachment in the front(old one welded on) and muffler replaced/patched, and body work)

later i hope to add 29" SS TSL tires to it when i am done with the rest

i will prob just save it and get a new truck ASAP

i will use this one (unless i can sell it) as a work/trail truck for the back.

i try not to do anything that isnt necessary and when i do its really cheap and done just enought to keep it alive and going as long as i have it.
ya its really not worth a ton

windshield, new body attachment in the front(old one welded on) and muffler replaced/patched, and body work

i figure i will get the parts cheap from the JY and do it myself

windshield--not worrying too much(but my dad is)
body attachment--welding should hold it fine
muffler--weld plate on the hole and holes on the pipe
body work--not really worth the time
AAL--lift and extra weight capacity

its a great little truck for off roading in 2wd, and work(longbed) but i need something nicer

but as crappy as it is its amazingly reliable(few minor problems, but mostly basic needs)

hope to find another 4x4 ex. cab ranger, 4x4 ex. cab s-10, or jeep at some point
