    Ultimately just bought the glass from the dealer ($1450 msrp paid $1100) and used the same installer the dealer uses. $400 for the install.

    Two days later caught a rock behind a truck on the highway and you guessed it, small chip embedded into the glass. Glass tech came out and repaired 98% of it. If you didn't know where the knick was you wouldn't know there was one. Stay from behind semi trucks on the highway
    Not just semi-trucks, any vehicles with aggressive tires! I was about 6 car lengths behind a girl in a Jeep Rubicon, she was texting and continuously veering off onto the right-hand shoulder, so I stayed well back, but not far enough back because she spit rock that glanced off my hood (thank you Clear Bra) and dinged my windshield.
