Not that I saw or heard. I was sitting in a parking lot when I heard it and saw it crack. I guess I was lucky in my JK. However, I purchased the expensive gorilla glass option for my JK. Hope they come out with something soon for the JL. The glass seems really thin.
Man that’s crazy, every since I’ve been seeing these cracked windshields I’ve been stay pretty far back from people on the highways. If or when I get a cracked windshield I’ll go the gorilla glass route also.

First time post!
I just ran across this thread and had our windshield replaced this morning. We have had the JLUR for 2 weeks and the crack was in the same location as others, dead center top of windshield and spider webbed down then towards driver side. The wife didn't even know it happened.

Asked parts department about gorilla glass, he couldn’t find anything about it. Still a rumor I guess

You might be able to get Safelite to repair it. I know my insurance does not charge a deductible for that.

Just got my first crack, 4 months in and 3,200 miles. Had a rock hit right on the bottom edge about a week ago. Was waiting for my daughter this week with Jeep running, heard a small pop and watched the crack come up from bottom of window. Continues to spread every day or so. Called Jeep dealer and they had no part number for the Gorilla Glass windshield. Will probably just use Safelite at this point.

I wonder if it's because the Acoustic Glass is thiner?

I got my first crack (on this Jeep) on the way home from the dealership. I just laughed.

What the heck... 1500 miles and just took a rock to the windshield. Crack isn’t even above the dash. I’m guess I’m lucky it didn’t chip the paint:whew:
