Rusty can chime in here.  You know the basics, but I can't help but say to don't force it!  The cost wouldn't be much on getting the windshield installed and they would even use their awesome sealers.  Maybe 30 bucks or even less if you can bring it to them!  I just had the windshield replaced on my jeep, via insurance, and it was about 175 for everything.

Hope that shines some lights.  Unfortunately you have to wait until monday now, unless you know of someone which would be awesome!

If you got someone to help ya and apply some pressure from the outside it makes it easier, but you can do it by yourself. I've done about all mine by myself. If you can get some small wax coated string, that would help, then some vasiline, put some vasiline on the string, on the metal lip of the cab, on the inside edge of the weatherstrip and in the inside groove thats going on to the metal. Find the center of the string and put it at the top of the weatherstrip groove and around to the left and right, all the way to the bottom were the ends will meet and cross them over in the groove. Place the windsheild in place centered,  your going to be starting at the bottom, but don't try to tuck the bottom in more then the top when you place it, just center it all the way round on the opening. Slowly pull both at one time to get the lip coming over the metal lip, take your time and after getting it started you'll have to go to the outside and push in the the glass, kind of a pull alittle, push alittle. Its easier when you get to the sides, cause you can push with one hand and pull with the other. When you get both sides to the top corners, heres where you want to push down on the glass to try and seat it better on the bottom.  And then just go side to side, doing a couple inches at a time until your to the end.

datto, your bberry makes you sound like you're stuttering.

anyways, Rusty's post should be a sticky. removing/installing a 620 windshield isn't really that difficult. i've done it on 3 620s windshields, k/c side and back windows. i got really good at removing the windshield that i didn't have to slice the rubber seal if it wasn't hard. i would re-install it with the same uncut seal because it was still soft and pliable.

Yep, vasaline, the best way to do it, and its easy clean up afterwards with a dry rag.

Well, have been bustin ass on this truck. dash is in, the 'yota rims have new rubber (BFG Traction TAs) and its runs nice and smooth.  now to find a hood, get the windsheild in (yes know.....haven't  felt like dealing with it) and finish up putting the interior together. also we got the dome light to work with both doors. used Z switches and it worked great.
