Our windows are formed and hard coated on both sides, trimmed to size, blackout out with an epoxy ink, and will fit directly back into the factory location. The coating is like rainX and never goes away, and will withstand rubbing with .0000 steel wool. You cannot break these! Rock chips are a thing of the past. We have had customers roll their Jeeps in the trails and the windshield pops out and they just pop it back it place. Let us know if you have any other concerns.

Just FYI guys, unless the laws have recently changed, these are not legal for road vehicles. The windshield needs to be able to be easily broken to allow you to escape from a wrecked vehicle and allow fire/rescue to tear things apart to rescue you. Of course, not really an issue for a Wrangler, but still a technical legal thing.

I'm happy that I survived 2013 without killing a windshield. Broke two in 2012...

Yes we have to say that, these are Off Road use only and not DOT Legal. With that being said most people do what they want when it comes to there projects. The material we use is not Lexan; Lexan is a brand name for polycarbonate. We use a much better material and it is the same material used in our armed forces armored vehicles and yes the hard coating does have a UV inheritor to protect it from the sun. These windows will stop a 22 bullet just in case you were curious how tough they were. We have a new website being created as we speak but here is the current one. http://www.opticarmorwindows.com/jeepwindshields.html

Give me a call if you have any questions 573-317-9066.

Will you be making these available through Canadian distributors at some point or will it need to be ordered direct from you guys?

What are the effects of severe cold on these products? I'm speaking about the -40*C/F range.

Street legal or not, I'm all for something that will last many times longer than the stock glass for a small price increase.

We are selling direct at the moment. You will not have any problems in -40 degree range. We make 3/4" laminates for severe duty machines and they are used in mining operations and forestry applications up there in Canada and no one has broke one yet. Just to give you an idea, we frozen the laminate down to -52 and shot a 5lb lead tooth off of a bucket, out of an air cannon at 800 ft per second and our window did not break! Our window insulates better than glass and the sound deadening properties are better as well. I hope I have answered your question. Please let me know if there is anything else we can do to help.

DOT makes you feel safe? might as well park it and walk. Ever been to a extraction? they cut the A pillars peal the top back. People have a faith in things not seen and trust in designs that are flawed out of the box. I could put DOT on anything, even this window. NO one has a list of what is or is not. No one test this stuff as well. Its just a sign that it might be up to a standard. Like GM ignition or a wrangler clock spring all are horrible designs made to be cost effective that will fail when you need it. I would not drive a Jeep with airbags after what i have seen and studied. 5 point and a seat made for these. hard mounted. no computer that thinks it can.

K.I.S.S is a lost design principle.

my next window will be one of these.

What's the longest anyone has used one? How does it install? Like a regular windshield with the silicone and such?
