I was going 65 down the highway today (no, really, I was actually going the speed limit) and a good size rock hit my windshield. The noise was tremendous. It did leave a pin dot size mark in the glass but I think a standard windshield would have been cracked. Has anyone else had a similar experience yet?

Yep. Took a hit today actually. Whatever it was was not as big but made a big noise and not a mark on it.
 
This is the 3rd time a rock has hit the windshield. This is the first one that cracked the Gorilla Glass. $642 to replace it

Correction: over $1,000.00. The repair company misread the VIN

The GG windshield is covered by Jeep under warranty for up to 2 years (but only 1 replacement during that time). I already had mine done, and I know several other people have as well. $0 cost.

I called and they said they don’t cover damage from things hitting the windshield. Only if it cracks from material defect.

That's not correct. However, it doesn't go through the "normal" warranty process. The dealer has to contact a different department to get it covered. Doesn't matter how it breaks, it's covered for 1 full replacement.
 
Less than 1k miles, 6 weeks in, 70mph, 1st rock, chunked my gorilla glass. They’ll replace it once under corning’s warranty.

Thanks for the follow up. I’m going to call the dealer again. Insurance is paying to have it repaired but not replaced.
 
Wish I had the same experience. Caught a rock and instant 12 inch crack. Called Jeep and they told me to take it to the dealer. Dealer said it should be covered but would put in a claim with Jeep. Jeep declined it due to "outside influence" What the hell is "outside influence"? Of course, it was outside influence. How else would the windshield break unless it was defective? I wasn't expecting miracles with the GG windshield but thought it would hold up better than that. I know it is a Jeep so the windshield are going to crack and break but dang.

Alright......warning this is new age thought stuff so gonna sound crazy.

The theory goes that you get (receive) what you put out into the universe. You throw rocks and rocks will be thrown back at you......... I have a gravel driveway and when I had my JK with no mud flaps, I'm sure I was slinging a lot of rocks. All of our vehicles got pummeled with rocks on the road it seemed like. And it was not from driving behind the JK. I got to be quite the master at using those windshield repair kits......

Since getting the 392 and having the Roc Blokz flaps on it, the rock assault has stopped. Coincidence......maybe but just a thought. I got the Roc Blokz to prevent rocks from the front wheels from hitting the rear fender flare, but now I'm not throwing rocks at other cars either.

YMMV, just some food for thought. After watching Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, and The Secret, it makes me think about this kind of stuff.......

Thank you Idaho392. The dealer did eventually order the GG for me. I had to chase them down every step of the way. The GG came in and they never told me. I called and they were incredulous that no one had let me know. It is installed now. Safelite wanted $1,300 to replace it. My deductible was $1,000. I asked my insurance company how much it would cost to have a $0.00 deductible. They charged $55.00/yr. additional. Why didn’t they tell me that when I put the car on the policy 🤬
 
That stinks, hope you get it fixed under the one time replacement! My black 392 is currently getting PPF on it and while in there I’m adding DYNOflex to the Gorilla Glass.

Here’s what I read on the DYNOflex..it is rock chip-resistant, absorbs shock without any cracks in the glass, and boasts of 99% UV rejection.

I figure with a Black (exterior and interior) and GG this can only help for heat living in Texas and rock chips!
