ANOTHER WINDSHIELD Bites the Dust - What Number are You On?

Almost $570 just for parts?! That would hurt big time! Last time I did mine it was $250 total and they came to me. The next time I may just do it myself given the way prices are heading!
Glass work sucks. I worked at a glass shop previously years ago. To do it right, I have no idea what tools cost now to do it correctly. But yes parts prices have gone nuts. Glass insurance is a wise investment IMO.

replaced the JL glass 3 months ago, $250 out of pocket for a non-oem windshield

It already has many tiny chips on the glass, I'm thinking factory glass has a better outer coating.

Didn't get this level of chips in the original until the crack spread across the windshield.

Since this is my first Jeep I've had to replace it zero times but I think I'm due for my first one . What do you guys think of the windshield protection film do you think it works?

Both on road, on the highway to be more specific. Our Gladiator was the day we picked it up from the dealer with less than 100 miles on the odometer.

The 392 has Gorilla Glass, with any luck 🍀 it will last a long time.

According to safelite, the gorilla glass is thicker than aftermarket glass, but cracks easier because it is thicker. Im not sure how I feel about that. I had lots decent sized rocks hit it at over 90mph and just leave little chips, but I was going only 50mph when the boulder hit.
