Latest one is at the edge of the windshield so I can't repair with the rain-X kit. This is my 5th or 6th chip. No cracks at least.

So, I've never had a cracked or chipped windshield in my life. One month in and boom. I've joined the club. Decided to let Safelite repair it for now to see if I get hit again or if it was just dumb luck.

I'd like to thank everyone that made this possible: to the woman in the Rav4 who crossed two lanes of unfinished highway to cut me off and then throw a rock into my windshield which has 3000 miles on it.
To the Denver construction and traffic who made it possible (also another shoutout to Colorado's DOT for gifting me a bonus of a nail in my front passenger tire, excllent placement, right in the sipe and not the tread. AMAZING JOB!)

Take a bow, everyone. You deserve it.

I am at 13 months, 19,000 miles and my 3rd windshield.
Best $800 I spent was on the windshield warranty. 5 years / $0 deductible / unlimited replacements.

I didn't know a warranty was available. My dealer never offered me to insure the windshield. You got a lucky deal.

Might want to double check that it’s unlimited windshields most of them have a max dollar amount. I was told mine was unlimited as well but when I read the fine print the will go up to $5000. Which I’m fine with as I paid $550 for the coverage

I haven't cracked my windshield yet, fingers crossed. But I've scratched the sh*t out of it with a squeegee. I've never once scratched a windshield cleaning it but somehow I have a several small horizontal lines 3 to 12 inches long. And of course the deepest scratches are right in my line of sight.

Last Tuesday something hit my windshield and took a chunk out of it. By the time I came out from work, it had spidered while parked. I dropped my Jeep off to get the glass replaced today, insisting on a Mopar glass. But they are saying Mopar only has Gorilla Glass as a replacement for my JL. This true? Beccause the Gorilla Glass is supposed to be double the cost and I will have to pay the difference that insurance will not cover.

Safelite had OEM when I replaced mine and a non-OEM version that was cheaper. OEM was like $485 and the other was half that. I never heard anything about Gorilla Glass in my efforts to have it replaced.
