    Optic Armor Windshield and rear window

    Has anyone replaced their windshield and rear window with optic armor ones? They are supposed to fit like stock and be stronger and lighter. I am thinking of doing this at some point to save some serious weight but without fitment issues and not looking stock that lexan has, as well as how easily lexan scratches.

    If the fitment is right then this is an awesome option. Hopefully someone will chime in with a review. I would get the windshield simply to deal with these AL roads.
