Any updates on the gorilla glass? I’m already through 2 factory windshields so just ordered one today. Hoping it will last a while or I may have to add glass coverage back on to my insurance. Just hate that even a windshield replacement when you have glass coverage counts as a claim.

So far no issues on mine, but I've only driven it around 1,000 miles or so since it was replaced.

For those that aren't aware...
The front windshield has a 12,000 mile / 12 month warranty through FCA.


However, mine has 28,000 miles on it, and Chrysler still approved replacing mine under warranty because it cracked when I turned on the front windshield defroster on a really cold night. My dealer took a photo of the crack and my VIN # and sent in the repair request, it was approved in under 48 hours.
I'm having difficulty finding this information on my owners dashboard warranty information. Where did you confirm this?

Hey @JSFoster75 and others with the HGP, I'm thinking of replacing my cracked OEM with this one. Ya'll still liking it? Does it have the cut out for the VIN like the OEM?

I like mine. Not sure about the VIN cutout. I’ll look later.

Although I’ve been told you should cover that vin on the inside with a piece of electrical tape because thieves can easily see that VIN. And subsequently use it to easily steal your vehicle somehow. I have looking into it too much , but won’t be upset if the VIN cutout is not there. In my opinion that would be a bonus. If anyone legit needs the VIN they can open the door and get it

Good point


I'm debating this HGP compared to the OEM Gorilla Glass - same or better product? Worth the price difference? I'm seeing $700 for HGP vs $1000 for Mopar

I just looked at mine - YES the HPG one has the VIN cutout
