Not acceptable! Looks like someone was in training when they attempted your repair. So tired of seeing piss poor work!

Windshields should be done by Safelite , not the Jeep dealer.

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?

That's terrible. Take it back and demand they do it right.

wow that is pretty sad....I had mine replaced to fix the whistle ..but did not work...it will have to go back..I thought about taking mine to a glass company and have them add some seal like that around mine...but looks like a 6 year old did that one...another thought I had on mine looking at it...was attacking it from the inside.....the windshield folds down and there are holes you use to strap it down on the hood...if the wind is coming in through the seal it has to be whistling through some of those holes....Thoughts...???

Wow! That is the worst job I've ever seen... my brother in law was in the glass business and I've helped him a few times and NEVER would this have been acceptable. It is obvious that this was not done by a professional....

That’s sloppy lazy work. I would raise hell, of course you can just fix it with a scraper and make it look decent but still.
But you run the risk of cutting into the paint and them having corrosion set in or paint bubbling

Looks like the same crap they would do in Lee Summit Dodge in Missouri. Wouldn't doubt if it was the same owners.

Looks like new. Third time was the charm. The glass guys that did the first two drove to where I work, bout 2 hours, and installed it onsite. They still maintained it was done well. I told them there were at least ten Wranglers in the parking lot and I GUARANTEED none looked that godawful. But they did it and all is well

A High School Auto Shop class would have done a better job!
