    When they replaced the glass on my 2019 i looked at the old windshield, it was really, really thin. Compared to the other windshields on the truck it was night and day. He said they do a ton of Jeeps, and he said the newer ones (JL) seem to crack easier.

    Jesus Christ. Why don't they just make the new ones with cracks. This is nuts.

    I guess I feel like a real Jeeper now - mine cracked yesterday. Looks like it started as a rock chip below the windshield wiper that I didn't notice and now it's a big ol' crack.

    Ordered a new one to be installed next week, only cost me $396 from Safelite. It's supposed to be the OEM one, seems like I got a pretty good deal I guess...

    How was the repurchase process? I'm about to go down that road myself. Any advice or warnings?

    Make sure you have things in writing from FCA before you are passed over to Stericycle. Once they send you over you arw at their mercy. I was promised no mileage fee due to all the issues I had and trip interruptions, when it was sent over originally it had that, but down the road FCA updated the quote and added it back in. Stericycle could not help me even though they sent me the original quote with it waived. Once FCA changed it after we agreed to a price i was basically told take the new offer or consult an attorney on my own. For me it was not worth more hassle so I just paid the mileage fee.

    I had no issues with Stericycle personally, they were always responsive. The final transfer agent said they do a LOT of new Wranglers, so I imagine they have the process down pat.

    Know what is awesome to look forward to?! When it starts to get cold in your area between the $hit defroster and the science of flat glass your cracked windshields will crack even more! That one chip/crack will turn into a metro highway system in no time!
    Fkn hate this windshield. Someone on this thread said they ride it until they get pulled over, am considering trying the same.

    I am proud to say I’m the newest member of the cracked windshield community! I’d love to thank everyone for making this a reality, it’s an honor and a privilege

    haha but on a serious note at least I made it a year. Cracked the windshield road tripping back from Austin with the family. Cracked spread within minutes

    Has anyone recently been able to get a factory windscreen recently? Dealers says they are backordered for months.

    Have you tried a glass company like Safelite?
