Hey all!

My JLU is nearly four years old and I'm getting the itch. Life's too short to not try different stuff, right?

Anyway, I'm thinking about putting in an order for a 2-door Bronco, and I was wondering how vertical the windshield is? I know it's a strange question, but after having my jeep for a while, I can't stand being in vehicles with the curved windshields anymore. Not joking lol Legit makes me feel a bit nauseous and like things are distorted. My wife has a Kona and any trip in that thing just makes me feel gross. So I'm hoping the Bronco's windshield is pretty similar to the jeep's.

Thanks!

It's not vertical, 127 degrees according to the first angle measuring app I found on google play, lol.

Thanks, guys!

Yea, sorry, "vertical" probably isn't the best word for what I'm trying to say, but the graphic definitely helps. Does it curve at the edges at all, or is it a pretty flat piece of glass?

I find it pretty upright compared to any other vehicle I’ve driven.

If your local dealership has a demo, I’d suggest sitting in one first. I think it’ll be fine for you though.

Comparing the windshield of my Jeep to that of the Bronco I can't tell that there's enough difference to make a difference. :)

It's curves horizontally slightly and is not nearly as upright as a Jeep but much more so than an F150. Doesn't take much time to get used to the difference from my truck.

It's definitely the most vertical windshield in a vehicle I've driven since I last drove one of these:

It is noticeablly less slanted than standard, but not 90 either. Here a side pic I have, with front and from the front side.

It has about the same rake as a 1979-1993 Ford Mustang, so it's aerodynamically limited to 120 mph with the available horsepower...

I’m coming from a ‘17 Taco so this pic is a great reference. It’s a noticeable difference. The Bronco windshield is a rock catcher (got me in Ashville, NC). I was going to have the ceramic coating done but didn’t before that happened. After talking to the local Safelittle shop they were convinced that the windshield would have been worse off with the coating due to the increased stiffness. I dunno, but the replacement windshields are around a grand 💰so be considerate of your risk when choosing your insurance coverage in this regard.

Yeah, I read another user posted the windshields are very expensive. I have had it on my insurance and replaced many over the years due to construction zones.
