Hey 4xe owners! We're ExoShield 馃憢

We make a premium windshield protection film to save your windshield from those rock chips & cracks which are all too common for those of you with flat, vertical windshields.

We've been protecting windshields for a while now, but just launched our latest product specifically for Jeeps - ExoShield ULTRA. ULTRA is 60% thicker than our premium windshield protection film (without compromising clarity or performance!) and can be installed DIY in your garage!

To say thanks for having us here, we have a special promo code for 4x3forums members to get you 20% off your DIY kit on your site: NOMOREQUACKS20

Kits are now available at shop.getexoshield.com

I got a rock chip in my windshield last week, literally only 6 hours after I took delivery of my 4xe from the dealership.

I might have to think about grabbing this. Questions: can you easily tell there's a filmn on the glass, or is it pretty close to invisible? Also, do wiper blades still work ok with it, or do they scratch/scuff the film over time?

Oh nooo!!! Unfortunately I've heard this one way too often! One of our buddies had his Gladiator windshield break literally on the way home from getting his windshield replaced - TWICE! Those flat, vertical windshields are magnets for rocks

To answer your questions - it's pretty close to invisible!! For the first few days you'll be able to see some of the moisture under the film from the installation, but this will dry out and it'll be pretty much perfectly clear. I have it on my windshield and always forget that it's there! The biggest thing will be making sure to avoid getting contamination (dust, dirt) under the film when you're installing it - we have a video on a few tips for reducing contamination that we'll be releasing in a couple days to help people out.

As far as the wiper blades, the film actually has a scratch resistant layer that makes up the top of the film. It basically has tiny nanoceramic particles in it that make it feel almost like glass, so the wipers won't scratch it up right away. Now, the film will not last forever - usually after 18-24 months you'll start to see scratches in the film from the wipers, and eventually you'll want to just rip the film off and reinstall a fresh piece. But generally we just suggest trying to keep your wiper blades relatively clean and you should be able to get 1-2 seasons out of it!

I asked for a Quote on replacing my non Gorilla glass windshield with a Gorilla Glass item during yesterday's Dealer visit. Tired inquiring about this windshield, forever SOLD-OUT. After arriving home with my Unit, I see she quoted for a regular windshield. A No-Go with them for sure.

From what I've read, the Gorilla Glass windshield gets rock chips and cracks as easily as the standard. Not worth the extra $$.
I've heard the same.

Besides, even if it were indestructible, I get free windshield chip repairs and $100 deductible windshield replacements with my insurance company, so I can fix or replace a lot of windshields before the gorilla glass upgrade cost would come out ahead.

That's awesome! Yes, storing it for a couple months should not damage the film! It will come rolled up, so I would recommend letting it lay flat for a couple hours right before installing it just in case the edges curl up a bit (this will make your life a little easier when you go to install it!)

As far as the code - no promises but I'll see if there's anything I can do... I'll send you a message!

I have a GC came from low sport cars. I have never seen a windshield get those Little Rock chips so easily. Not enough to crack the windshield but making to skim marks. Drives me nuts! I mean I have Multiple. Don鈥檛 go on the highway on purpose and still have a good hand full in 1,200 miles

If you live in SC it鈥檚 free. Insurance pays but is required.

Prefer to have it done with the next windshield replacement (we go through many windshields in Alberta). In fact, probably best to apply on a fresh windshield.
Glass shops here have offered this service for a while now. Probably not as good as the ExoShield product.

Yes, but was considering treating a gorilla glass windshield to a protective film once Gorilla glass for the JL ever becomes available again.

BTW, we in Alberta have "Windshield Exempt" as part of the glass endorsement with our Auto Insurance. A significant cost savings. Again, we go through many windshields here.
Dealer quoted $360 CAD for replacement. I can do better at my regular glass shop. JK windshields were only $199 CAD - Installed. OE Windshields are no better but cost more.
I remember end-of-life 1960s GM cars would go to the wreckers with perfect windshields and there was a lot of 2-Way traffic back then. Was hoping Gorilla glass would be like those 1960s windshields.
