    The M-113 windshield was very interesting , you drive into the sun and the whole world in front of you vanished, never mind the wind I need to see , that windshield came off real fast,

    MLVW restrictions

    do any of you know if the break is the same on all the vehicles? if so this looks like it's all about the torque rod mod allowing to much lateral movement and stressing the stud to the point where it just breaks off, they should expect this break on every ML that has had the torque rod mod done...
