I'm going to say roughly 6,000. One of the states I have to drive through on trips seems to have extremely inconsiderate drivers- they will pass you on the interstate and pull in front of you with barely one car length clear. One of those drivers was responsible for the rock. My crack is about 6" from the righthand edge of the windshield so I don't see it and I'm not in a hurry to get it repaired.

Mine was roughly around the 4000 mark. My Jk didn’t get its until around the 120000 mark. Definitely looking at Gorrilla Glass.

I'm at just over 32k with no cracks from the outside of the windshield. When my rear hardtop glass shattered, the shrapnel hit the windshield and left a star from the inside, but it hasn't spread in the last 8k miles.

Girlfriend made it 439 miles on the way home from the dealership. Hopefully I have better luck when I pick mine up in a few weeks.

The first couple weeks of ownership, I got two chips within an hour of each other on two different roads.
I had both chips repaired.

Ughhh... Just last night on my way home from Sedona, AZ on the I-10W. A damn Subie kicked up a rock. Even had mud flaps, but obviously didn't help. Just hit 11,000mi.

Going to try Gorilla Glass next.

I just picked my wrangler up Friday morning and within an hour or two at mile 53 I got a small crack from a little rock at the bottom in the middle. It measures maybe 1cm and hasn't gotten bigger yet and I'm closing in on 700 miles.

I average a rock impact about every 10k. I have repaired every one of them myself within 24 hours. I use the rainx repair kit. I usually get 8-10 repairs per kit between home and work.
I am still on my original windshield.

Mine was broke around 3,400 miles, had it replace and 20 hours later broke it again on HWY 89, don’t know if it’s a record but it should be close🙄. The crack is on the passenger side so I decided leave it for now.

I've owned Wranglers for 15 years and never had a cracked windshield. A few starbursts is all.
