How much did they charge you? I'm thinking about doing this. But I don't have a crack. Just 20 years of sand blasting that makes the windshield terrible to view through. I do have a tiny ding in it. (This post is starting to sound like a bad joke. lol.) Been thinking about hitting it with something. So insurance will pay for a new one. lol.
Depending on how pitted it is your insurance company might pay for it because it can be considered a safety factor. (Rain does not sheet off a pitted windshield as easily). I had a windshield with scratches on it that was covered for just that reason.

Details on where you got the leather boot?

Redline Goods ... They will do custom colours, multi colours, stitch colours etc... I just wanted black... Took about 2 weeks for delivery to Canada.
Really happy... I didn't need any glue... Just pulled it over and snapped it in.

Gained 2.25" of ground clearance w/a UCF Extra Clearance Skid. Engine skid yet to be installed. Also replaced a ridiculous Magnaflow exhaust system that I installed 3 yrs ago. The stock exhaust was rotted. I like the look/design of the Magnaflow, but it was ridiculously loud. Now I have a Gibson cat back. Soo much nicer.

insurance covered the total bill. ive got full glass coverage with a $0 deductible.
i know what you mean about the sand blasting though, mine was from the denver area and it took alot of sand/grit from the roads out there. the whole front end of the jeep is plastered with rock chips. im surprised yours has lasted 20 years, my dad leased several tjs over the years when i was younger and i remember windshields only tend to last a half of a year to a year before they crack.

Finally got the new head unit and speakers installed. Had to deal with this mess from the PO(wire harness adapters, use them, don't hack)

The head unit is an XA AVX3000 Sony and puts out very decent power. With the now back to 4x6" Polk speakers upfront and the boom mat enclosures, as well as the four-speaker and dual tweeter rear overhead soundbar, the sound is much fuller and crisper. May not need to go subwoofer for a while. Now I find myself lowering the volume to hear the motor lol

Cleaned everything upfront and taped over any exposed wires plus added the mic for the hands-free. Easy.

Hip hop makes for a great sound quality test indeed ;)
How did you get the Double din to fit? I've been wanting to move to a stereo with a screen for a while, just haven't been able to figure out how to fit it.

I replaced the windshield in my 98 a couple months ago right after I bought it. It was so pitted it was dangerous driving it into the sun. I called a couple of independent shops, got it done for $155. It’s a small flat windshield, not that expensive.
