Several weeks ago, we told you that the Jeep® brand would begin offering Gorilla Glass windshields in its Jeep Wrangler (JL) and Jeep Gladiator (JT) models. Customers have been complaining about how easily their windshields have developed cracks or stone chips during regular driving. Many people have believed that the rake of the windshield on the Wrangler and Gladiator has a lot to do with the windows getting hit by various debris.
This morning, the Jeep® Performance Parts (JPP) brand from Mopar announced that those who have a Wrangler (JL), Gladiator (JT), and even a last-generation Wrangler (JK), can now order a Gorilla Glass replacement windshield from their local Mopar dealer.
JPP gave us a sneak peek at this new accessory at this year’s Easter Jeep Safari, with the Jeep Orange Peelz Concept. That concept was equipped with a factory-backed Mopar windshield made with Corning Gorilla Glass.
“Out on the trail or on a daily commute, windshield damage can happen anywhere at any time,” said Mark Bosanac, North America Vice President, Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care. “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.”
The new JPP windshield made with Corning Gorilla Glass uses the same chemical-strengthening technology like cell phone screens. Mopar’s combination of an ultra-thin Gorilla Glass inner ply with a 52% thicker outer ply makes this windshield lightweight and durable, offering superior resistance to chips, cracks, and fractures from stones and off-road debris that hard-core Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator owners are likely to encounter.
Backing the added strength of the Gorilla Glass is a two-year limited (from date of install), unlimited-mile warranty from Mopar. The replacement windshield features the original Jeep branding “Easter eggs” along with the Gorilla Glass brand’s signature gorilla head artwork.
Later this summer, JPP Gorilla Glass windshield replacement offerings will also be available for Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator models equipped with additional options, including a forward-facing camera, a camera-surround heater, and/or an embedded antenna. The option is available now for Wrangler (JK) owners.
The new replacement windshields made with Gorilla Glass are now available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada. Offerings with Mopar part number, National Auto Glass Specifications (NAGS) identification, and U.S. and Canada Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) include:
