How will this affect Jeep Owners?

This warranty is likely to reduce claims out of pocket costs and the number of times will replace your windshield in the future.
What is and isn't covered?
Mopar's 2-year limited warranty is pretty straight forward when it comes right down to it. Mopar will cover costs to replace your damaged windshield one time in a 2-year period of time. The warranty states clearly that it covers replacement for damages from pebbles and small road debris. However, it does not cover damages from accidents, large debris, falling objects, or natural acts of God. The damages described in their warranty resembles ROLAGS definition of what's reapirable.
What you'll need for the warranty.
Having your windshield replaced under Mopars warranty is simple if prepared. The two things you're going to need is the Proof of Purchase for your dealer glass, and your invoice from the auto glass shop. Both forms should clearly state the date, VIN#, and possibly mileage. With these two forms, you can initiate the warranty and have your glass replaced by the shop of your choice. Once you've started the claim process your dealership will issue glass to the shop for installation. After your glass shop has returned the used part to the dealership, the dealership will issue payment for labor and shop materials.
