The tale: I have an old pre war Craftsman tablesaw. Cast iron base cast iron table. I found another for free on CL. Thought I could make one beauty out of two junkers. I called the guy. He had to leave, but he said he'd leave it outside his garage for me to pick up. A neighbor went with me.

My truck: 2001 Toyota Tundra with a factory plastic bedliner.

We got to the house and backed up the steep driveway. The saw was mounted to a base made of 4X4s. It was high enough that we could hook the edge of the saw table over the edge of my tailgate. Then we grabbed the legs and levered the saw, on its side, up and into the pickup bed. It was easy. But then, it slid down the bed and shattered the rear window of the truck.

Now. I can buy new glass. How hard is it to remove the old and glue in the new?

While you are at it why not install a slider window. I have done it on my other trucks with help from my brother in law. It could be easier than regular glass because of the framework.

Take it to a glass shop. You can thank me later.

Turn it in on your insurance, if you have comprehensive insurance. Then only have to pay the deductible.

Most deductibles these days are more than the cost to replace the glass.

That was my experience 4 years ago when I cracked the front windshield on my 2012 Chrysler Town and Country MInivan (I will not tell you how this idiot (me) broke it).

It was a leased vehicle, so I had to use Chrysler glass.

My State Farm Auto Insurance has a $500 deductible.
State Farm gave me a quote of $750.

I already had a quote of $475 (and they had the Chrysler glass).

The interesting/upsetting thing is that my quote was from the same company that State Farm used.

If you don't have a problem with people breaking in to vehicles, I'd do what Ron said.. get a slider installed.


Another quality post.

My deductible isn't any where close that. O on my 2018 Impala and I think $100.00 on my 55 truck.

The hardest part is cutting the old window out, common back yard way is an exacto knife and some soapy water, the new window is just pressed in against a new bead of urethane. Place the new bead on top of a fresh cut back of the old bead.
