    -60220 is non fold down (ala troopie, BJ70)

    -60230 is fold down.

    Wayne said aftermarket available for -60220 @$195 +/- CDN
    -60230 is not available in CDN or US aftermarket.

    HTH
    (PS, BJ74 owners, Cabe Toyota, Long Beach has a 60230 in stock at about $400 US if somone needs it. Parts Manager ordered an extra since I needed one 2 weeks ago)

    Done, Greg. Thanks, Rick!

    There was discussion before and the BJ74 fold down windshield is defnitely shorter in height than the BJ70 non-folding windshields.

    You figure that they would. Comprehensive coverage covers glass claims (with a deductible)...they don't make a JDM exclusion. Wonder who the first one is going to be? I had a rock hit my windshield the other day, but didn't see any damage so far.

    I've been noticing that some of the JDM rigs are coming *without* laminated glass in the front windshield. This means you are going to be wearing a lot of glass if you take a decent rock hit. Somebody should look into a group buy on replacement glass to see if we can knock the price down a little.

    I'm amazed at the flagrant safety violations that get past the inspections.

    I just checked and both of my 74's have laminated windshields - safety glass.

    I suspect the other glass is some cheap aftermarket stuff. I can't see Toyota installing unsafe glass.

    Regards

    The fitter that installed mine says they can come in different thicknesses.

    I think he said OEM or other quality screens are 6mm thick.
    He mentioned cheap crap made in Indonesia being 1-2 mm thinner.

    Im not suggesting your supplier sells crap but can someone check new against old for thickness?

    Safety glass is *not* laminated. Safety glass is what is commonly found in side windows of automobiles. When it breaks it explodes into thousands of small... safe... pieces. Laminated glass is two sheets of tempered glass with a thick plastic sheet glued between. It stays generally in sheet form no matter what hits it.

    Greg and I checked ours today, and both of us have Lamisafe Toyota glass in our 74's, Bruce.

    I don't know...but it's what came with my truck when I got it from Japan, and I haven't had to replace it yet. I'm just assuming from the name that it is laminated tempered glass, however.

    <EDIT> It does say "TOYOTA" on it, so I assume that it's an OEM windshield.
