Jeep started strong, and has never looked back. The American producer of off-road vehicles and SUVs was founded in 1941, and immediately had a strong military presence. The early Jeep models – which still serve as the principal aesthetic inspiration for the present day lineup – were used by the thousands during World War II. This not only was a proud step for the company, but served to make them both popular and patriotic in the American eye, thus setting up the company for great commercial success.
Since that time, Jeep has grown their lineup and tried many new vehicles. But the automaker has never strayed too far from their original mission of utility-based vehicles. They've never produced a sedan, a sports car, or a minivan; they made trucks for a while, but now their lineup consists solely of SUVs, and Wranglers, the modern day iteration of the original open air Jeep. Even the larger SUVs in their lineup draw physical cues from the original Jeeps, and every vehicle that's ever been manufactured by the company has been fit for offroading.
The company – which is a division of Chrysler – has a pretty full stable. Their lineup consists of the Patriot, an entry-level compact SUV; the Compass, a compact SUV; the Cherokee, a mass-market mid-size SUV; the Grand Cherokee, a more luxurious mid-size SUV; the Renegade, a crossover; the iconic Wrangler, and the Wrangler Unlimited, a longer, four-door version of Jeep's signature model.
Since Jeep has had one philosophy throughout their history, and has stuck to it, it should come as no surprise that they keep it simple where glass is concerned. All of their models have the same physical traits, and the same philosophical goals, so it's only fitting that they have the same glass arrangements. The Wrangler notwithstanding, as it only has two doors, all of the cars in Jeep's lineup have front and rear windshields, front and rear side glass, and rear quarter glass that sits behind the rear doors, and in front of the pillars. The Wrangler has front and rear windshields, front side glass, and rear quarter glass.
The Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited have a caveat. The base models have hardtops, but they are also offered old school style: with soft tops, or with no tops at all. These versions of the models have no rear windshield glass or rear quarter glass.
In addition to a consistent glass setup throughout the lineup, Jeep features some of the easiest glass to replace on the market. The simple reason for this is that Jeeps are designed for practicality and utility, not luxury and aesthetics. As a result, the glass components are simple: the shapes are basic, the installation is easy, and the specifications are often overlapping and exist for years.
You can go to a dealership or an aftermarket glass specialist to have the glass components on your Jeep replaced. A dealership will be a little more expensive, and a little more trustworthy, but both options are relatively risk free, and quite affordable.
