thanks for that info, thought i would wait it out too.
have a Suburban that got a bullseye and star fracture chip about the size of a quarter really close to the middle of the windshield, passed inspection for about 8 years, never got worse than the moment it happened.
then one day i bought a 12' 4x4 for a project, realized that if i propped it up on the dash snug to the windshield, i could close the back doors.
scooched it forward the final half inch, and just barely tapped the inside of the windshield in the area of the chip... plickkkk and it split in about 6 directions for several inches...
the curved ones have far more strength from the outside in, than the other way around...
guess its about equal on a Jeep.
