PROTECT YOUR WINDSHIELD

The Mopar® windshield with Corning Gorilla Glass helps defend against many common windshield fractures.

Sharp Impact

SHARP IMPACT

 

  • Typically small sharp stone impact
  • Characteristic star (aka radial) crack
  • Crack extends fully through the outer glass ply (surfaces one and two)

 

Blunt Impact

BLUNT IMPACT

 

  • Typically small blunt rock/debris impact
  • Characteristic bullseye flaw, may see surrounding star crack
  • Crack is on surface one of outer ply, may extend to surface two of outer ply

 

Biaxial Flexure

BIAXIAL FLEXURE

 

  • Larger blunt object like hail or stone
  • Sharp impact on surface one
  • Long cracks running from a central point
  • Crack is commonly on inner ply surface four, sometimes on outer ply surface two

 

The new glass is reportedly thinner than it’s stock counterpart but the inner laminate is 52% thicker and utilizes the same technology that many of our smartphones use. Part numbers are also listed on the Mopar site for the JK, JL and JT models.

After 23 years of corporate life, I decided to pursue my passions in the off road industry. Specializing in marketing, visibility, relationship and brand building, and acting as MetalCloak's field marketing representative, I have travelled across the country (quite a few times!) using Metalcloak’s CTI (Corner Travel Index) to educate the off road enthusiast. I have also worked with Jeep Jamboree USA as event staff, to provide additional value and education to its participants. I've been fortunate enough to work with both international as well as domestic media; have attended most of the off-road events across our country; and have driven a wide variety of vehicles. I'm a certified PADI scuba instructor and have a BS in Computer Science.
