Hardtop rear glass

I shattered the rear glass in my hardtop getting it down from storage -- any suggestions on where to get replacement? I've checked with all of the usual auto glass places and it is pretty pricey... anyone know of a place that sells just the glass? Morris 4x4 carries aftermarket glass (aka reasonably priced) for TJ and YJ, but not JK. Any suggestions appreciated!

Yup, I checked with safelite - they wanted $538 installed. Not cheap, but a shade better than the $680 the stealership wanted. For now I guess the soft top will stay on ..

Unfortunately I have a $500 deductible .. keeps the rates low, but bites you in the a** when/if something happens. I found a few places that will install replacement for $425-$450, so if I can't find the glass alone for cheaper (to put it in myself) then I'll just bend over and pay $400+

Lesson learned -- next time I will wait until I have someone else around to give me a hand when I am getting it down from storage ..
