JC Witney windsheild frame

Has anyone replace their windsheild frame with one from JC Witney???..they have a new steel frame in their catalog for 139 bucks...that is by way far the cheapest price I have seen for one of these brand new .. My concern is that it's cheap junk and won't fit properly..

So now you need glass and seals and sealant. How much is all that? I got a kit with everything to includes the glass made the DIY process easier and I think it was $300 shipped. Might check that out. Quadratec on sale so check around.

I've bought a J C Whitney windshield frame for a CJ7 that worked just fine.

I have bought a few body parts from JC Whitney over the years, and most have been good. Some needed a few tweaks to fit properly, but to add to that, I have purchased genuine mopar parts that fit worse than the japanese parts that you get from Whitney.

And JC Whitney will take it back if you dont like it, with mopar, once you buy it, its yours. They wont take anything back unless you can prove a major defect.
