Don't drive behind trucks particularly semis.

I really want to believe so, but the rocks I seen coming at me are at almost bullet speed. The best way to protect the windshield is to petition your local government to end salting and sanding the roads for the BMW's who need to do 100mph to work in all weather conditions. I say force people to outfit their cars with proper tires for weather conditions, or fine them. Doing so will save our cars, bridges, roads, environment, your health, etc.

A good friend of mine highly recommended using this. I'm placing an order today because I literally just came from the dealership with a new 2014 Sahara "Altitude" in amped color...it's friggin sweet.

I call BS on this one...it's a fluid. If it were a film, I could see how it works, but a what is a fluid going to do?

The best way to avoid cracks and chips in your windshield is use common sense, don't tailgate gravel hauling dump trucks, or just leave it in the driveway and drive the mini van.

I could not agree more I just drive by when they end up in a ditch standing by scratching there head in wonderment

Now for the rocks don't drive close behind any thing
Or your nice new glass could end up

I think there is a 3M film that works, but I don't know it off the top of my head.

Only for rocks that are passing through the 2 inch area blocked by the bug deflectors. You'd basically have to be within about 8 feet of the car/truck in front for that to be reliable.

Glass replacement added on to your car insurance. No deductible. I'm lucky, in Arizona is's free and added automatically. Has to be a crack anywhere at least 6" long or a chip in the glass in front of the driver. I get a new windshields every couple of years on all my vehicles. Around here the glass guys come to your home or business and change them Some of them will even give you a check for $50 or $100.
