Kinda ironic that it happened the same day I got my vanity firefighter tags that say "CRASHD".

Is there an impact mark? If there isn't you can get a warranty replacement.

unfortunately I do see a point of impact..............oh well. Debating getting it fixed now, or just seeing what path it'll take and wait till the winter..............

that is a very common problem in wranglers and cj's. the windshield is at almost a 90* angle so things tend to hit it dead on rather than roll off. it is something that we all have become accustomed to.

My JK winshield was $340, I think thats a bit much but can't do anything about it so cop it on the chin If it gets cracked I will just wait untill I have to get a safety check again, thats every 2 years in Ut, then get a new one ,cracks don't bother me unless they leak

After all these years of immunity, I just got my first starburst on the way to Moab! Thought watching out for trucks etc. was keep my out of range. Car passed and there it went. I was initiated!
Actually got the starburst somewhat fixed for $30 bucks in Moab at a glass shop. It held together great and did not expanded on the trails. And it is not in the line of vision so may wait for the next inevitable rock to hit it before replacing it. Think maybe I just need to get out more so I can buy more windshields.
Yep, it happens!

I don't think $120 for a TJ windshield is bad at all.

But I like the cracks in my glass, gives it charm...plus the day after I change it, it'll just get another chip or crack in the new one.

2000 miles, your lucky. I had my first replacement at 600 miles. New cars are rock magnets.

I carry a $50 deductible on my comprehensive insurance. If I have a glass claim, it doesn't raise my rates.
If it's a star chip, they fix it for free.

I've had the glass replaced twice and this one has a chip repair in it now.

Ours broke at 600 miles on the OD. Zero deductable on comprehensive, so all i had to wait for was the glass company to get the glass, then they drove to my work and did it in the parking lot. Wife wasnt happy to see her new jeep with a broken windshield though......always happens when i drive it.....hehe

Be lucky is they renew your policy after the glass is fixed!!!!
21st didn't renew my policy because of that.
Then I changed to Geico and lets see what happen.
I replaced the windshield last year with geico and my policy is close to renewal.
BTW and I allready have 2 cracks on my windshield!!!!
