I've had my FJ for a few months now and I've always wondered what the 8 dots that go across the top of the windsheild are for.... any ideas?

I wondered the same thing when I bought it. I sort of assumed it was for the installers to help with clip placement or something. I'd be interested to find out why they are there as well.

We are not supposed to talk about such things.


Seriously, I want to know the answer, too.

Well you got me, just had the windshield replaced today, diden't do too bad allmost two years. I don't know why for some reason the dots seemed to jump out now, just don't rember them from the old one.

I have wondered this as well. I am thinking for just looks. Like how a lot of manufacturers have the 3 rows of dots that fade into black around the edge of the windshield.

The simple answer is: Aliens. Crop circles and windshield dots. What next?

No dots on my 2007 FJ original windshield, or I don't know what you are talking about.

they are there so the factory robotics that install the glass have a place to align the suction cups to the windshield to insure proper placement. If the windshields are not placed perfectly on the racks next to the assembly line the robot still can self align and pick up each windshield in the exact same spot.

yes. skynet has already done just that. You are talking to a computer program now. I am not real. I am a model T3000 sent back to manipulate the FJ cruiser owners into submission.

I just had a feeling Skybot exists and that the T-3000's were slowly infiltrating us humans threw mind control as our Fj's will certainly be a worthy machine in the overall master plan to take total control!!!

They are part of the targeting and control system for incoming rocks... flying rocks on their way in lock into the dots and are able to then precisely target the weak spots in the front glass and crack it.
