Current generation Ford F-150 trucks and the last generation Jeep Wrangler can be outfitted with a hail proof windshield made by Gorilla Glass. The material was originally created for smartphones, but now shows a lot of benefits for windshield replacement. We will evaluate the differences between a hail proof windshield and an OEM windshield to determine the right choice for your truck or SUV.

Hail Proof Windshield vs. OEM Windshield

You can see immense benefits with an upgrade to a hail proof windshield, aside from better protection against the elements. This lightweight auto glass also takes off pounds and lowers the vehicle's center of gravity. However, the ultimate reason to upgrade is for insane amounts of protection against inclement weather. Corning has even published a video where the company is firing 1.5-inch thick balls of ice into a windshield at 65 mph from a close range, and no damage occurs. If you are tired of replacing your auto glass, a hail proof windshield in Colorado Springs might be the answer.

Hail Proof Windshield Upgrade Costs

For the most part, insurance companies will cover auto glass replacement if you use an OEM replacement, which Gorilla Glass is not. That means that you will be responsible for the cost and can’t expect your insurance company to foot the bill.

  • Hail Proof Windshield Costs
    As an example, a 2018 Jeep Wrangler windshield costs about $400, while the hail proof Jeep windshield will cost about $700 instead. Again, a 2019 Ford F-150 OEM windshield is about $450, while the hail proof Ford windshield will run closer to $900. That shows that the cost of hail proofing the windshield means you might see double the price. However, if you need a compatible windshield to match your rear view mirror, a head-up display, rain sensors, driver-assist equipment, or other features, the price can go up further.
  • Hail Proof Moon Roof Costs
    It’s also possible to have your moon roof replaced with hail proof auto glass. Talk to our experts to get an accurate quote and replacement and save yourself the trouble of dealing with emergency service after a storm.
