Frakking hell! Driving on the highway not long ago getting hit by a bunch of small rocks. Nothing new, happened before. Literally 5-10 seconds after it stops, I get hit by one more& Mi windshield cracks on the driver's side. Then I notice all the chips from the other hits.

Now I gotta see about getting a replacement of the same windshield. I don't want a generic one. I like my windshield with the jeep grill& small jeep off roading!

Just filed a claim to get mine replaced. Sadly, it won't be till Friday :(
The crack had grown about an inch. It's longer than a dollar bill :eek:
Free windshield, best part! Save money for other stuff!

I had 3 HUUUGE cracks on my windshield. We're talking all the way across and so bad I got pulled over once. Just had mine replaced. The glass place told me on the phone that an OEM windshield is all that they offer. So I still have all the jeep stuff on the glass.

Mine as many others broke within the first couple of days from buying the jeep. I think when we go to pick up my wife's JKU I'm just going to take a hammer to the windshield the first day and get it over with.

Haha! Would be bad if they say after you got out replace because of of said hammer. It gets hot by a rock& break. That would suck!

Mine is almost 3 years old, first time. I checked out the website for the place that's going to do mine& they have an option that you can choose if you want a cheaper window than oem style (if available). That would be dumb to choose if you don't have to pay.


Taking Mi decal window, I'm quite fond of it!

I got hit on Saturday and it started on the edge of the glasson the driver's side. About the length of a dollar bill. Next day it grew about an inch or two.Monday, about another inch or two. Drill into the glass a bit ahead of the crack to stop it. So far it hasn't grown!

How much does an OEM windshield usually go for?

:/ no idea? But, from checking out safelite online quote for a oem window (at least I think it is, unless they just put the decals on them selves). It was between 400.00-500.00

Paid $300 for my OEM windshield installed. Safelight was almost $700! What a racket.
