Looking at windshields and need one with DOT approved glass in Michigan, which will be a requirement for street legal. Any recommendations, I want bolt on not customize?

If I buy the factory windshield can I replace the Lexan glass with auto glass?

I was quoted about $200 to replace my factory marsguard with glass. My dilemma is then getting a windshield wiper system to look factory with that windshield. I’m going to go with a hard cab by summertime and will probably just sell my factory windshield and use the hard cab providers windshield.

Well I've heard Fortress and ONTHEROX both offer frames that will take DOT approved glass those are the 2 I can suggest

yea I probably am going to have to buy the windshield frame and get the DOT glass installed. Do you know if the ONTHEROX fixed windshield and what Dirt legal sells manufactured by the same company?

I had a early CJ model windshield. In order to mount it I had to remove the front and side ROPS. The CJ windshield was too low. The Roxor seats are up higher than a Cj's because of those storage boxes.

I had to take my Rox to Nash Powersports where I saw a display Roxor with a local supplied windshield. I went home with one. DOT glass included.

Who is your hard cab provider?

There’s none out yet so I don’t know. Whichever one I like first is the one I’m getting. I’m looking for something totally sealed and without cheesy doors.

You pulled off the CJ frame and replaced it with the Nash supplied one?

The early CJ5 seats are actually around the same base height, only a little difference (there was a fuel tank under the driver's seat and flip up toolbox under the passenger). The Roxor seats are def thicker. All this adds to the height.

IMO top choice dictates ROPS plan. If someone makes a non cheesy top that works with early or late CJ windshields, awesome. I'd prefer OtR or Fotress make an enclosure that works with their windshields, as massive visibility increase over the CJs is awesome - as is the stock ROPS.

Cecco Racing has that lower windshield spacer piece as you've probably seen. Hopefully they can make these for the retail market. That and either brackets or complete bars that accompany the factory roll bar.

So the Fortress wiper kit is $273 per side? Almost $600 for the set and another $600 for the windshield? Yikes!

It is a bit expensive but I liked the hardtop and tip out windshield combo for my use, so I justified it as a package. I only bought the drivers side wiper.
