Or, you could try making your own >>Small Willys Jeep Decal - Size 2.25" wide x 7/8" tall



I haven't done this, but I saw it on Etsy and it looks promising for the windshield. Worth checking out for 8 bucks.

Great find! If/when I have to replace my windshield, this is exactly what I'll be doing! This was being discussed a couple months ago in a different thread. I had suggested that a JCC member who die-cuts vinyl should make these and sell them here. But if an Etsy seller is onboard, so be it.

Note: This should be applied to the glass before it is installed on the vehicle. There's no way you could apply it to an installed windshield

SOOOOO LMAO this is embarrassing. The guys came today to install the new Windshield. Apparently they brought the wrong Window. The one they brought was OEM but without the Humidity Sensor. So I had to reschedule for next week and they'll bring the Window with the Humidity Sensor(just the bracket that holds it). They said It'll cost an extra 100$ though , because its a window that has the Humidity Bracket, Acoustic Glass and oh....the good news is that. It will come with the Willy's Jeep logo

Salesperson lied. If a w/s is made wrong it can have a distortion or a "warp" looking spot in the glass. It is a bad part and should not be used... the only other thing I can think of would be that some solar coatings can look rainbowish... but you shouldn't ever have a warp or blurry spot.

What glass company? They should have matched the price for you...

Its a local glass company. I've checked Safelite and other Third Party. Safelite would charge me the original Windshield for $650+ including taxes and other fees. Another third party was charging me $658. But this Local Glass Company is charging me $390 out the door for the original.

That is definitely a good deal! Here in Colorado you almost have to have comp insurance with a $0 deductible. It's pretty cheap and saves you TONS of money in the long run when you are replacing a ws every year!

Safelite replaced my 2016 glass 2 months ago, I had to call my insurance company and explain why I refused the glass. Then I went to the dealer and they ordered new glass out of New York with the emblem and heater, Safelite picked it up from the dealer and installed it. I pay a $100 deductible, so the insurance company paid the bill and I sent them the $100.
