JeeperJake "You really need to get insurance with comprehensive, no deductible, glass coverage."

this^^^

yes, I had a similar rock-star adventure. The fix was perfect for about a year until an even larger rock made whole-windshield replacement necessary.

One year decades ago I had about 6 pheasants through my VW glass.
Had a job requiring travel through a LOT of very rural country that was prime exposure.

Seginus I don't know if it true for everyone but I have a deductible on my insurance for windshield damage but my AAA membership add-on removes that. AAA pays for itself, at least in my case, as I have had two repairs done in 18 months. YMMV.

Lusus_Naturae Pay the $25 to fill it for now. When you collect a few more, replace it for about $200. I wouldn't even get insurance involved, all it does is raise the rates.

And before anyone says that's why you pay for insurance, we all do. I don't want my rates going up because 10000 people cashed in their insurance to cover a windshield. Everyone's rates go up - a few dollars here and there - and then you get told, well, "the state you live in had so many claims its costing us more, so we raised everyone's rates". Accident claims fall on those who have them, windshield and hail claims fall on everyone. Sorry for the gripe, my insurance just gave me this lecture as they raised my monthly rates by $20 again this year.

Jeeps have vertical windshields. They will catch stones.
Just picked up my JKR last night and added $0 deductible to cover the glass on it and my wife's Ranger - $152 for a year to cover both vehicles.

socal-jk I have filled stuff like that. You will see a small distortion and its 50/50 if it cracks out since its more then just a chip. We have a nifty kit that has a suction pump on it. Put a vacuum over the chip, heat up the glass and inject the resin. A drop of hardener and a UV light to cure.

Barmanvarn Happened to me as well. Glass place down the road replaced it for $200. No insurance involved.

Sjtoby I think it may be different for different states. In MA, windshields were covered.

When I lived in TN, it wasn't covered. I paid 180 about 7 years ago to get windshield replaced in TN.

Rubicon_Jim I think that's to large to fill but hard to tell and if you do the stress will just make it crack in a direction and get worse over time but you can try if you want. Also fills can yellow overtime. I'd get it replaced. I replaced mine last year on my 12 jkur. Caught a stone and left a minor crack which grew a couple feet over a 4 day period lol. Got mine replaced free through my insurance, totally covered and no deductible. Was a quick and easy replacement in the parking lot of my work.

americonium Have it filled. After two or three, have it replaced. That's just an opinion.

Is this fixable? Where can I get a new one?

Stupid windshield is a rock magnet on the highway. For anyone whom has experience, is this fixable? Insurance said they could get a brand new one for $400 or fill it for free?

Any recommendations?
