Flipping Mud--Scratched windshield....

The FJ really seems to fling mud. It flips up onto my hood and windshield in big clumps.

Some of the grit in the mud got caught the wipers and insribed 2 nice arcs into the glass on the driver's side.....

Bound to happen but the 1st ding always sucks...especially when you have to look at it everytime you drive....

One of those things, a glass shop can fix it with out removing from vehicle.

Not a big deal you'll have to replace it soon due to the crack thats coming. The glass is thin.

Re: Flipping Mud--Scratched windshield....

Barely 2 weeks old and it has been at the dealers for most of the time getting the seat squeak fixed.

I am thinking about lowering my deductable.....

I kind of miss my old 4x4 with the locking hubs that I could beat the crap out of and I was actually proud of the dents that I put in it.....
