    Took the car out for a cruise Saturday night, probably one of the last of this year, and I found this Sunday morning when I got in to pull it out of the garage. This wasn't on my mod list, so I was not impressed. :blah:

    Is your car Supercharged? A couple of the UK members have had cracked screens caused by the torque!

    No, it's pretty much stock other than intake & exhaust. I'd love to have that much torque though!!

    If there are no signs of a stone chip causing the crack, it will be down to slight frame flex.

    Safelite does a good job for a reasonable rate. I recommend not going to the OEM source as I have had the experience of two broken windshields in a row show up from Chrysler. They make good one it but it can take forever......Safelite is cheaper and faster.

    I've got the suspension dropped and it's pretty stiff...hopefully that's not what caused it. I've been unlucky this summer, and picked up quite a few stone chips too.

    I would not call it unlucky driving a Viper in the Summer ;)

    Having the suspension dropped and the ride stiffened will definitely enhance the problem.

    I had the screen crack in my van a few weeks ago while driving down an uneven road :(

    I should shoot a pic of mine. It is EXACTLY the same…but I caught a rock that chipped the windshield and over the course of a few months, it spiderweb'd.

    now that i see this i noticed my windshield has no rock chips or anything but has kind of a crack under that weather strip cowl piece right on the edge of glass exactly on the same spot as yours! you cant see it unless you pull up on the rubber strip underneath the cowl :mad:

    Safelite just fixed my 12 Grand Cherokee windshield and you can't even tell. While the guy was on his way to my house to do it my wife called me from the road on her way to work to tell me that a rock fell off a dump truck and broke her windshield. So Safelite did 2 windshields for us in just over a week though our insurance. The cracks were not as long as yours but they claim to be able to repair pretty big ones.

    We don't have safelite in Canada, and our insurance covers our glass. I have a friend trying to source one for Rare Snakes car.
