    Well, it seems the employees at my shipping broker are not capable of telling the truth. Broker says "yeah, they'll ship it with no glass". Shipper says "No way in hell". Long story short, I need a windshield for my 77 Jimmy asap. East Mesa... I'm also vehicle challenged, so I can't get very far to pick one up, and to top it all off, I aint exactly rich after spending $5k shipping all my crap.

    Anyone help a CK5 brother out?

    The last used one I knew about in Mesa, I tried to remove and cracked it in the process. best bet is to shop around for a new one. Good luck

    unfortunately it does need to be pretty much perfect. No cracks, thats why I had to pull the existing one.

    I have a good one in my '73 GMC K25 that I'm parting out...I'm guessing it would work. I'm down here in Tucson tho...don't know if that's too far for ya.

    Thanks Shawn. I ended up buying a new piece of glass. If I have to do it, might as well do it here instead of Hawaii. I'm just pissed cuz my shipping broker told me it would be fine. Seems the trucking company don't care, but the boating company really does.
