With about 11,000 miles of towing my Jeep, initially my windshield started to look like it had been sandblasted from the dually throwing up gravel, etc. The last trip, a decent sized pebble made a hit that cracked it and so it had to be replaced. The replacement cost of the OEM windshield runs just over $400.

I replace it and Diana made a neat heavy duty vinyl cover which fits over the windshield when we’re towing. Easy off and on, tied down with small bungee’s to the door hinges and a long bungee pulling it tight inside the Jeep. She put 4 metal grommets on each corner to attach the bungees. Also, she made a seamed sleeve and inserted a bendable landscape rod to tuck under the windshield wipers.

Road test tomorrow on a trip down to the Pinnacles National Park..... :condom:

Try and go down to the local fabricate store and get a fit to size foam cushion piece to put behind your condom to protect the windsheild. Rocks will still crack through the vinyl material.

Nice Howie. That should do the trick.
