I am going to order this the second I decide to finally buy my Jeep. We use it in racing and their products are pretty damn top notch so I am curious to see how well it works on a windshield given the likelihood of catching rocks and getting cracks =/
I was interested in putting this on my JL for my 15,000 mile trip up to AK from Maine this coming summer but was concerned about the many miles of unpaved roads I would be travelling with mud and rain and wipers. I posted this question on a couple of International Overlanding sites and it was not encouraged. So, I simply lowered my Comprehensive coverage to $50 deductible and discarded the notion.
I'm using this shield and few weeks ago something hit the windshield really hard, I think it nicked it but I cant really tell if the imperfection is in the shield or if it got to the glass. Haven't taking it off yet to confirm. I think that if I didn't have that thing installed I would have needed a new windshield. But I will update you guys here in a week when I take the shield off to examine the glass.
This is a must where i live (Kuwait).. we have extremely horrible roads. you get bombed with all kinds of rocks on the highway. it's so bad sometimes that even side windows get rock-chips.
i have been running windshield protection film on my jeep for 2 years now and i have zero rock-chips .. keep in mind harsh weather condition and usage of wipers alot will ruin the film (gets delaminated) within 6 to 12 months.. but it's totally worth it since i don't like replacing windshields.
i have tested multiple brands over the years on all my vehicles and none of them survive delamination more than 1 year.
