Always carry some extra ATF for that pump.
I try to carry extra fluids across the board. ATF, Brakes, Power steering, Coolant, gear oil, etc. I have a sealed container I carry it in. Never know what will happen in the sticks. You just need enought of each to allow you to limp back to civilization....and hope you brought enough. :)

So...

Who would I speak to about finding myself a rear window assembly?

What campsite did you stay at and would you recommend?
This was Oso group campground - not cheap but there was a ton of us there. Check out yellow post camping - always been a good experience in the Big Bear area.
Holcomb Valley also good to check.

When I busted mine a local glass shop found me a window on ebay. They ordered it for me and installed it all for $160.00

Safelite quoted me $980.00 for the same repair....

I have a set I removed for gull wings. Where are you located?
Sacramento. Are they tinted? Mine has the "privacy glass" or whatever it's called.

I also have gull wings ready to go on. NV would be closer tho. Glass not pulled off yet but would have the seals and from a 97 CE. Keep in mind if a simpler more timely route falls thru.

Huge shout out to Land Cruiser Northwest in Portland OR. After I serviced the rear axle I decided to let them do the front. It's 60 miles away but it's the only shop I'll let work on my rig.

They are tinted, I don't know if it is privacy, but they are dark. These are complete, seals, frame, glass the whole monty. I'm in Sparks if you're interested.
Thanks for the offer! I think I’ve sourced one locally.

Bolt in the wrong hole. Started screwing the cap bolt in instead of the calliper bolt. I was aware of the issue and had a system in place when doing my axle rebuild, but was rushing and f*cked it up. Thought I'd got away with it, torqued up okay with the correct bolt. But a few months later when doing brake work tried to reinstall calliper bolt and it threaded out

Helicoil would have been cheaper, but I'd never trust it in that application, and I found a new knuckle on Partsouq for a lot less than expected

I had to helicoil one of mine when I stripped a caliper bolt hole. If they're properly installed a helicoil is stronger than stock, I just never trust the "properly installed" part. I totally understand your sentiment.

Classic problem. It happens to everyone at least once.

Gave mine a bath after many weekends in a row of wheeling.
Still cleans up nice
