I know there are plenty of you Tri-Staters here (NYC,NJ, Ct maybe Eastern PA).
Need some feedback on who to goto and who to stay away from.

I am willing to drive to a quality place to save me any headaches down the road from a bad install.

Believe it or not--I suggest the dealer you got it from--
I recently had my local gas station offer to do it--they did say they would farm it out to a local guy they use---well-he apparently never worked on an FJ before--not only did he botch the entire install-the winshield was put in incorrectly, he totaly ruined my front cowling and clips--he dented the roof in numerous places. and he is has no insurance --and claims he did the job correctly.

So far==$450 to reinstall winshiled

$485 to replace cowling and clips

700 est to fix dents and repaint the roof......
