The Gorilla Glass Replacement Windshield rumors are no longer just speculation, but a viable option. Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) officially announced that the industry-leading product is available for the new Jeep Wrangler (JL) and Gladiator (JT) models, plus the 2007-2018 Wrangler JK models. The Gorilla Glass windshield comes with a two-year limited warranty from the date of installation, and an unlimited warranty from Mopar. If you are ordering a new Jeep JL or JT, make sure to include the Gorilla Glass in your build.
“Out on the trail or on a daily commute, windshield damage can happen anywhere at any time. Our proven, quality-tested JPP replacement windshields made with Gorilla Glass offer hard-core Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator owners additional protection and a factory warranty,” said Mark Bosanac, North American Vice President, Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care. The Jeep Wrangler windshields have always had the issue of chips and cracks, earned both off and on the trails. I had a semi-truck flick a rock at my windshield on the way home from the dealership. Not owning my Jeep more than thirty minutes, I had a chip that was large enough to consider replacing the windshield. The Gorilla Glass replacement windshield is something Jeep owners will want, whether you are on your first of fifth vehicle.
The Gorilla Glass windshield is constructed from the same chemical-strengthening technology as cell phone screens. Most of us drop our cell phones several times before seeing any damage. Mopar designed an ultra-thin Gorilla Glass inner ply, plus a 52% thicker outer ply making the windshield both lightweight and durable. This combination gives the replacement windshield superior resistance to chips, cracks and fractures from rocks and off-road debris.
Mopar partnered up with Corning to launch a mass-market windshield replacement program for OEM, when patented Gorilla Glass became available for the 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler models in April 2018. As the summer continues, the JPP Gorilla Glass replacement offerings will expand, offering options for Wrangler and Gladiator models equipped with a forward-facing camera, a camera-surround heater and/or an embedded camera.
The Gorilla Glass replacement windshields are now available in the United States and Canada.
