Jeep Auto Glass & Windshield Replacement
is a brand of American sport utility and off road vehicles. Owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. They have a deep root in American history. The original “Willys MB” went into production in 1941 for the military. It played a huge role during World War 11, becoming the primary four wheel drive vehicle. The war put Jeep on the map and the first civilian model were produced in 1945, Jeep CJ (Civilian). Jeeps have always been geared toward off road enthusiasts and have created a die hard fan base. Many jeep owners enjoy working and modifying their vehicles themselves. The Jeep Wrangler is one of the last remaining four wheel drive vehicles that come with solid front and rear axles. The appearance on the Wrangler has changed little since the first CJ over 50 years ago. The other flagship model the Grand Cherokee, has received more awards over it’s lifetime than any other SUV.

Jeep Windshield Replacement
With many Jeep owners using their vehicles off road, a broken windshield is a very common occurrence. However, there is some good news. Replacement windshields are readily available, thus the windshield replacement cost is one of the most affordable. Also, the Wrangler windshield has not changed in many years. It is almost completely flat with a very vertical stance making the windshield a target for rocks. The company has added some technology to their more well equipped models, where the price of a replacement can move up. In recent years the brand has reduced the number of models with exterior windshield mouldings in favor of a more streamline appearance. During a replacement the installer must be very careful not to scratch the pinch well because without mouldings they will be visible.
Windshield Replacement Options:
Windshield with Logo- the Jeep wrangler grill logo located in the top center of the windshield.
Forward Collision Warning- Using a camera mounted to the windshield it senses if the vehicle is approaching another vehicle or an object too rapidly and alerts the driver with an audible and visual alert.
Adaptive Cruise Control- Using a camera mounted to the windshield it will automatically adjust the speed to maintain a preset distance between the two vehicles.
Laminated Acoustic Front Door Glass- An acoustic vinyl is fused between two layers of glass helping reduce road noise. It is also an added security feature making it very difficult to break.
Rain Sensor- A optical sensor attached to the windshield. It uses infrared light beamed at a 45-degree angle into the windshield which reflects back — if the glass is wet, less light returns to the sensor, and the windshield wipers wipers turn on.
