So what do you recommend to fix a leaky windshield? Everyone says avoid silicone but all the available fixes I find, Permatex, JB Weld, etc. are silicone. If you have any suggestions where to buy it would also be helpful.

Dave, usually the caulk goes between the truck body and the glass. It glues in the glass to hold, but the rubber trim piece that you see is inserted over the glass before it is glued. It has a rubber channel molded in the back of the trim that goes around the windshield and fits over the edge. Pretty tough to do a decent job without replacing the windshield as you probably will see the caulking outside the rubber trim. Best to replace the windshield. get it done right. Some places have lifetime warranty and can tell if it was their glass or shop that did the work. Be cool if someone owned up to it and decided to replace it for you.

I understand what you're saying and have seen windshields go in. This is actually on my 93 Ranger but I posted here because a windshield is a windshield. Trouble is there was a rust spot in the cowl where the windshield mounts that was patched by the PO prior to the new windshield install and its not a perfect fit. I did the investigating I can see the gap where it is not fit right and leaking in. At this point I just need something to plug and seal the gap.

see if the  glass shop have a left over amount in a tube of their black stuff. It's real good stuff. They usually give me a small amount left over in a tube. Last time they gave me a whole tube when I asked. Don't use sillycone Dave it's acidic and can rust some more. Use a polyurethane.

Yeah dave110 and IBMobile, Sillycone is what they use to make Flubber and your ranger might float over restricted area and get shot down by F-18.
