how does windshield attach to rollcage

I am getting ready to have a cage built, and one of the questions I have is, how does the windshield attach to the front top of the cage. I currently have those cheesy stack things that support the windshield, but if those goes what is doing the supporting??

TIA

Re: how does windshield attach to rollcage

Some of the aftermarket cages that you can buy have brackets that bolt to the windshield and are attached to the cage.

I assume you can go without them like on my CJ. I have no supports on the windsheild.

Re: how does windshield attach to rollcage

If you can, I wouldn't attach the windshield to the cage. It is nice to fold the glass down when you are on the trail.
I don't know if the TJ's or YJ's need the support, but CJ's don't.

Re: how does windshield attach to rollcage

On my CJ, I have two rubber stoppers that deform against the roll cage as I tighten the windshield lock downs on the dash. On a YJ, you're guess is as good as mine...

Re: how does windshield attach to rollcage

I have a full cage in my YJ and there is no problem with out the windshield attached to the cage. I think that jeep just did that to make the cage a little stronger, with out haveing to have a front roll bar.

The widshield is almost the same as the CJ and they do not have a upper bracket.

put the screws back in to plug the holes and enjoy the window down if you want to.
