Question Windshield woes in Nashville

Ok, I know that we 5th gen owners have windshields that due to their angle are more susceptible to chipping. I'm not blaming Toyota for the fact that I chose this vehicle, and I live in a booming city with TONS of commercial construction traffic and debris, not to mention poor roads in general. I've got chips on the body as well on the front of my vehicle. I'm actually kind of amazed it took over two years to develop my first windshield crack.

I know there's gotta be more T4R guys in Nashville or middle Tennessee who have had their windshields replaced. Any place(s) you guys would recommend? Thanks!

The crack keeps spreading at about an inch every few days it seems. Anybody in the area had good experience with getting their windshield replaced in town? I read so many stories of leaks after bad installs.

I just moved back to East TN from Nashville, but never had a 4runner while there. I now have a 4runner, and some chipped / cracked windshield. I am in the process of getting mine replaced.

Move to AZ if you want real glass woes. If your worried about leaks make sure you go to a place that warranties their work.

Not exactly in Nashville, but A Plus glass here in Huntsville has always done a great job for me. Also, if you get any door dings, dents, etc. go see Matt at Dent Repair of Nashville. He is the best PDR guy I've ever encountered.
