Heater cracking screen?
Hi I have been reading this thread and looking at the videos, loved it. I am about to change the screen twice in a year. both times I never saw anything, first time it was cold frost and that heater kicks it out! especially in one or two areas where the cracks show up (bottom left and right of centre) Is it possible many of these crack are due to the extreme heat pumped out (I love the heat and crack it up to Red) I may now get this screen, Looks good. also anyone know how to upload a profile pic it just re-directs me.

Any updates to this? How's it been long term in the heat and humidity of Houston?

Was just thinking about this last night
How does the windshield handle cleaning/bug splatters? Is it better, worse, same as glass?
Was wondering last night as I drove home and could literally see the bugs committing suicide as I drove. The bugs are so bad it seems like I have to clean it each time I drive it this year.
Next rock attack on the windshield I will be getting one of these windshields.

I've got one on my Dodge Ram, and I've had virtually zero rock strikes on the windshield. the real difference is in the windshield angle. Any engineers want to comment on this one?

|JimmEC||Thanks for the support everyone. I'll keep posting as long as I see people are still interested.|

Can you send a picture of your switches and what they do? Just curious.

Damn Wrangler windshields kill me! I live in New England and the weather eats up the asphalt pretty good in icy weather. This in turn makes pieces of the actual highway loosen up like gravel at times. I've had my '12 since Sept. I took a rock or piece of asphalt off of it dead in front of my sight line! This happened at around 4000 miles in late January. Crack started forming instantly. It was "L" shaped and expanded over the next two weeks to about 10-12 inches. I called the dealer because in my state with my insurance, windshield replacement is totally free as long as the damage is substantial (approx. 4-6" crack for replacement, smaller than that and possible repair instead). I went to the dealer because I wanted the new glass with the Jeep Easter Eggs inbeaded. It took a week for the dealer to track down the new OE glass, but they did and set me up with a place called New Edge Glass that come to your house by appointment. The tech that came out was awesome! He saw how new and cared for my Jeep was and he said he'd take some extra care and make this seamless and as factory looking as he's done. It came out amazing. Still, I'm hoping I don't have to go through this once or twice a year! I love the idea of this aftermarket one u used, but there are a few things I'm not certain I want to deal with: mirror placement, different, visible glue/sealer without painting, rain noise, etc... You'd think Jeep or an aftermarket company would have came up with some kind of easy replacement by now. Charge me more, I don't care, as long as it last for three-five years or so! Lol
On a side note, good luck with your experimental windshield and keep us posted! Excellent job so far! OllllllO

|Ricterslick||I was running an aftermarket windshield and got a hold of a pigeon today on the free way. Launched the radar detector off the windshield and into my lap, but the mirror is still on.|

|ColdSRT||Thanks for keeping us up to date. I thinknthe real sticking point for me is the mirror. I have a switch panel where it needs to go. I wonder if something else can be done and remain legal.|

drove to galveston and back (80 miles one way). No whistle. Guess the rear view mirror had something to do with it. Help up nicely against wind and debris.

|JimmEC||I'm very happy with it now that I relocated the mirror. It looks way cooler there. The weight of the mirror might have been what was making it whistle. I haven't heard whistle since I took it off. If it whistles again I will advise.|

|AntiTrust||we all have something we dont like about our jeeps... whistle and lound rain are easily dealable|

polyshield in the rain.
Yes, that noise are the rain drops.

UPDATE AND ANSWER to that last post:
Up to now, def would. Fixed the mirror problem. That last video explains what I did and it worked out great.
No more vibration and the only thing is that its a weird angle than I'm used to, but you still have the same field of view.
I def like the mirror here instead.

Ha, yeah man I've had a hard time attaching my rear view mirror to my OEM windshield.
Fell of once, bought an adhesive from autozone... 3 months later fell off again, bought another adhesive and waited 3 days to put on the mirror, 1 week later fell off AGAIN and this time took a fat chunk out of the window shield about 1mm deep and 3x3mm wide.
Then just today I was driving and a truck threw a bolt or something metal up and it nailed my window... cracked the whole window from left to right, up and down like i rolled the damn jeep...
Now I too have to replace my windowshield, cant even drive it because its so bad any cop would pull me over if they saw me.
Would you recommend the polyshield?
thanks and cool post man
