Not sure where to put this, but thought it was a valid topic for anyone having a windshield replaced and has ADAS on their vehicle (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems); HUD, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, etc.
While searching for more info, as well as justification to spend the extra $$ for the infamous Windshield Calibration that many reference, I found these videos that offer a good incite.
What is ADAS?

For Sale is the original Driver's Side Windshield Pillar Trim Piece. It is from a 2018 Sierra Denali w/ Black leather interior, so I (think) that means it's the Shale color? Either way the Part Nos. are as follows: 23463713 - Grey; 23463712 - Shale
I replaced this item with the Oh Sh*t pillar mod, but I figured someone could make good use of this if they want to either replace a column that was cut on to make room for a custom programmer mount OR they want to custom fab a programmer mount and would rather do so without this piece missing off their truck while they do it! This part is not expensive, so I'm only looking to get $20 Shipped for it.. But it's literally brand new and I figure someone out there could have some use for it!

Just got a rock chip on my windshield and am wondering if anyone has had this sort of thing repaired by a glass installer/repairer such as Safelite. Am curious as to what the end result was and what it looked like after the repair. I don't want the chip to develop into a major crack with winter coming on by moisture getting in the chip and freezing.
Hey everyone. So I was cruising a rural freeway yesterday and the guy in front of me decides to hit the brakes and then throw on his blinker and immediately hit the shoulder before the turn lane begins. He kicks a block of broken asphalt up at me. I saw it coming and actually ducked.
It left a triple chip in the window, not exactly in my line of vision but close. It is not deep and does not appear like it has or will crack anything. Its just the surface layer.
So my question is- should I just get one of those adhesive repair kits to fill the 3 little chips? (I've done it before on older vehicles. I can buy one for like $10 online)
Or is the repair pointless and I should just ignore it and wait for the inevitable crack and full window replacement down the road? could be weeks, could be years, but I know this glass won't last the life of the truck.
I tried to search for windshield chips and nothing came up, so just looking for pros and cons to the self-repair job.
