Yeah they suck donkey balls! I got them in the Volvo and if I remember right the old Ford Louisville and Sterling had them circa 1998-1999 something like that.What moron of an engineer decided that self-canceling turn signals were a good idea in a truck?
Just driving down the road on a windy day and got popped by the bow wave of a bullhauler going the other wayHow'd you manage that?
Likely caused it. Positive/negative/positive wind pressure flexed the glass and the added mass of the slider was too much.I like how the sliding section survived.

It was actually on the interstate. We were both in the left lane (at a spot where the median was narrower than normal for Nebraska,) and the wind was fierce on my left front quarter, my top speed was about 65 on flat ground.I hate meeting other trucks on two lanes when the wind is blowing like crazy. Aero trucks are no big deal, a hood can rattle your bones.
Or break windows, LOL
Nothing in the vehicle, no damage around the perimeter.I ain't understanding the physics here.
I know wind and turbulence can rock the hell outta you. I had a hell of a lot of fun trying to pass trucks on the motorcycle last summer when it was windy as **** but shatter windows?
Not plain glass windows like on a house but toughened auto glass?
I'm thinking some solid object hit it. Like something blew off the bull rack?
Well....Nothing in the vehicle, no damage around the perimeter.
The couple times it's happened to me, it dumps glass both ways, too. There was a much in the bed as there was in the back seat. I always figured the rebound is what gets it. The pop flexes it in, and when it rebounds its in that brief lull and the momentum just does its thing. Then the wind hits again and carries a bunch inside.
Remember most back glass is tempered not laminated. It only takes a tiny failure to start the cascade of fractures.
I wonder about youWell....
Reminds me of the time I told my friend Eric to shoot his Daisy BB gun at the rear window of my 1979 Dodge truck, thinking it would just bounce off.
Just one pump. We'd shot each other plenty of times with up to 4 pumps. Never broke the skin.
****in' shattered that rear window like it was a brick.
Middle of winter too. I had to get out there and cut plexiglass.
