I would think that any windshield replacement company could get the OEM windshield for you.

If you have the rain sensing wipers you HAVE to get the OEM windshied in order for them to work. Make sure they order the right one.

Rain sense can be installed on any brand windshields. Their is no differance in the type of glass used on rain sense. Mopar glass is made by PPG. And to be perfectly honest PPG glass tends to have poor surface quality. I had a Pilkington put in my Commander. And they installed the rain sensor from my old glass. And the quality of the glass is much better.

The reason I said to get the OEM is because it comes with the sensor already installed and others here that did not get the OEM glass had problems with the sensor.

I had my glass replaced by Safelite about a year ago. The only difference between my glass and OEM glass was no Mopar sticker, and about $150 in savings. No issues with sensors.

Safelite is one of if not the largest windshield manufacturers. Safelite made many
of the Chrysler windshields. You may have an OEM but sold as an aftermarket.

Check with your auto insurer, many offer full glass replacement, no charge.
