You might want to look into windshield protection films. I think there are several types now. I used one when I ran my car on the track. Not a complete solution, but it does help avoiding small chips.

With the Bronco, I've learned to leave a lot of space between me and the car up front. A few weeks ago a truck three lanes away, with an uncovered load dropped a rock and it hit the windshield on my daily... it was inevitable...

that’s what I do. Doesn’t stop it but anything to minimize potential damage is worth it

I've been driving with a crack from one end of the windshield to the other for 6 months. It is just low enough that it doesn't distract me. I'll wait until I get one that is in the way before I replace the glass.

Highly recommended--have had mine on for 2 years. No chips, helps cut down on bugs too.

Same here. I’m just gonna wait until it’s unbearable. Have had several chips filled successfully. But driving to the mountains many times in the winter one is bound to get pummeled by rocks and gravel. I have windshield insurance with $250 deductible.

My jeep buddy has replaced his windshield 3 times, about once/year.
