    On mine, if you do not latch the window up right it slams down and shatters. Makes me mad as hell, but it's to late then.$$$

    Time for another new windshield,
    or just wait till something comes crashing through it like the last one

    and the heating and cooling could have caused it to crack, not sure how close to the fire you were though

    Damn near impossible to tell, but a real rough guess would be about 3000.. all depends on how dense it is, and of course how deep... Our pile is just greenwaste, not including all the tree debris and logs we have and is pretty dense... I have to get another shot of our yard before we grind it all up in the next week.

    I got a brand new replacement window in my f150.. few months later it rained and cracked it all up the side.

    Glass usualy has a 1 year warranty as long as nothing hit it. I suggest calling whoever sold you the glass.
