Today’s semi-alliterative headline is courtesy of Jeep.

The company has already made Gorilla Glass available on the JK Wrangler. Now it will expand to the Gladiator and JL Wrangler.

For the uninitiated, Gorilla Glass is similar to the glass used on most smartphones, and in this application, the outer ply is 52 percent thicker than the glass normally used for windshields on the Gladiator and Wrangler.

This glass is tougher than the regular stuff, which makes it pretty appealing for off-roading. Bashing one’s way through the boonies can put glass in danger from wayward tree branches and limbs.

They also give up nothing in terms of functionality. They work just fine with the available forward-facing camera and its heater, and they have the same Jeep Easter eggs that non-Gorilla-glass models do.

Pricing starts at $793 and goes as high as $932 (JK Wranglers start a bit lower at $645). That’s for parts and doesn’t include labor. There’s a two-year warranty with unlimited miles.
