Does this windshield fix by dealer look acceptable?

Did it fix the whistle? Your freedom top panel looks like something is majorly wrong there.
Whistle is gone. Freedom panels have always been like that. Been looking for pics of what they are “supposed” to look like

I would take it to a reputable Auto Glass installer, get a written estimate to have it done properly, take it up with Jeep. Stay away from that "dealer". Horrible unprofessional "job"
If they actually replaced windshield, rather than smeared with sealer, I would be concerned about quality of adhesion of glass to metal.

Dealership replaced windshield to fix a whistling problem. Noise is gone so that’s cool. However, this is what they gave back to me. To me this is BS. Am I over reacting?

Complete shit job. Take it back. Tell them you want it removed, cleaned, and redone properly.

That looks similar to when I ran a bead of Home Depot silicone caulk around the windshield of my beat up 1970 CJ5. But that was a beat up CJ5. It doesn't look so good on a new JL.

Holy shit just saw this. I don't know you but I can guarantee that dealership should be glad that isn't my JL. Good luck to them getting all that shit off too!
Please keep us posted about this. I think we should all, like every one of us, should call that service dept in KY and ask them what the f they were doing!!!

And yes you're freedom panels are wonky.

Wow.. just WOW! I'm so sorry you got the $hit end of the stick here bro.. I think as others have said take it elsewhere. Do not let this same dealer touch your Wrangler ever again.

I can tell you that I had my windshield on a TJ changed about 5 times in 10 years and evidently every time they changed it.........it was never sealed properly. The windshield frame rusted thru from the inside out from having water leak inside of it. Having it sealed correctly is important.

I've seen 3 yos caulk better than that and btw... there shouldn't be any caulk. Had ours replaced and it is a thick bead of adhesive that holds the windshield in place, there is no caulk like what you are seeing.

I suspect that the dealership doesn’t actually change the windshield. They probably call in the auto glass installer. I could be wrong. Either way looks like crap just like everybody else said. You got to take a video or record audio when you go back I’d love to see/hear their response.

They definitely replaced it. The previous had tint at the top that I had to pay to have replaced
They replaced your windshield with a third party one, it seems. The fourth pic you uploaded shows the brand, doesn't look like Mopar to me.
