Jeep® & Mopar Gorilla Glass Option For Current Wrangler & Gladiator Owners:

Wrangler (JK), Wrangler (JL), & Gladiator (JT) Can All Now Have Gorilla Glass Option...

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.

4 Wranglers and 2 Gladiators and I've never had a cracked windshield. Ever.

But for $95 I would have ordered this option anyway! Can't hurt I guess.

I wonder what kind of acoustic change it'll make to the interior sound quality of the audio system and noise overall?

I had a Gladiator Mojave for a week and rocks were always bouncing off the windshield from gravel trains and the road surface.

I was able to add Gorilla Glass to my JLU Sahara order that was placed on 5/10. Got VIN on 5/11. Been sitting in D status since. Can Mopar insiders get any idea of when these will start moving? Got a whole forum of guys waiting and everyone of us who has GG on their order sheet has not moved past D into D1.

There are several delays thanks to semi-conductor shortages and other vendors being slowed up thanks to having shortages in the workforce.

Everyone I know who’ve had a Wrangler has had this happen and more than once for some. Known as the “Jeep Crack.”Definitely the window angle. Glad to see the gorilla glass option and at a decent price. Let me know when they have transperisteel windshields however. Seems like there are a lot of cracked windshields around today and not only Wrangler.
