What's lame is the how the "easter eggs" practically double the price. It makes no difference to me being covered under insurance, but that cost increase in general is just BS.

The only reason why the discussion had come up is because you can actually choose the older non-logo'd windshield for replacement, if you want. And, for the same reasons as I mentioned in my previous post, they replace more of these newer windshields than they do the old ones.

I don't know how part numbers work when they're redesigned and the dude totally could've been full of ****, but again, given the fact I've gone through three '12 windshields already, but never had to replace my '07 that took an absolute beating, it makes sense.
I just got another chip....and Safelite guy was like WTF.....they felt so bad for me they didnt even charge me this time...saved me $100 and they just fixed the chip.
BTW, I was told almost verbatim the same thing.....get the window without the stickers.
Oh, and again...in almost 30 yrs of driving I've never broken a windshield before Feb.

In the past year I have had 9 rocks come up and crack my window. I refuse to change it until I have to. I have even had one crack happen when there where no other cars around! How does a rock chip happen when no other cars are around??? Jeep luck I guess

When I got my new windsheild last Thursday, another Jeep guy getting something done with his windsheild but I couldn't hear fully what it was. Maybe we Jeep owners should get together and address this issue in mass. I'm in.
