With a recent string of broken windshields on the next generation JL Wrangler, Mopar has stepped up with the ultimate solution: Gorilla Glass.

Originally announced in 2008, Gorilla Glass is a brand developed by Corning and first saw prominence in early smart phone applications including the iPhone.

Corning has a long history of experimenting with Toughened Glass including applications in the 1968 Dodge Dart and Plymouth Barracuda.

Now Mopar is offering Gorilla Glass for the JL Wrangler. According to their promotional website “The last thing you want to worry about is a cracked or chipped windshield, so next time it needs replacing, ask for a Mopar Windshield made with Corning Gorilla Glass.”

[Editors Note] The Gorilla Glass is also available for the JK Wrangler – model years 2011 – 2018.

Maybe Mopar should just make it standard equipment. What do you think?

    Gorilla glass is only available for JK, no announcement has been made for JL.
    Note, the outer ply is still conventional glass (but thicker than stock) and the laminate is the same. The inner ply is 0.7mm Gorilla (more flexible, less prone to cracking).
