They are still available, check with a local auto glass shop, I think it's LOF that makes em. They go for about $200, I think- my neighbor Duane bought one last year.

bought one year before last and it cost me $225.00 installed. that was using my windshield gasket. if you need that also it was like $80.00 for the gasket, but any windshield replacement place can get one for you

If you need the windshield weatherstrip you can get a nice new replacement at www.fillingstation.com (http://www.fillingstation.com) I think it was $50.00 (including shipping)..Later.....JD..
(I'll get the website right sooner or later)

Vanner, I had one, actually 2, on the line but the cost of shipping blew me away. I had no problem with the $200 mark for the window, but the glass company that my shop deals with wanted $200 for the glass and another $200 to ship it to the glass company. I thought that was pretty steep and balked. But they are available new from what I was lead to beleive.

Just thought I'd metion if it's a flat glass any glass shop can actually make a windshield while you wait for maybe $100 or so......I ahd one made for an old Suzuki SJ410 (predesesor do the Samuri 4X4) it was cheaper than getting one sent up....and he even cut it out of lightly tinted glass too.......worked great..

Oh yes it laminated windsheild glass.....they cut it on both sides.
