I've never had an issue with Safelite for any vehicle I've had windshields replaced on. They've always been great.
The one thing they always warned me about was lowering a window a crack before shutting the last door (at least while getting in) for the first 24 hours to minimize the pressure while the gasket settles. The pressure from closing a car door while the seal is curing can actually pop a windshield partially out of the seal and lead to leakage.
As far a the Jeep, while I haven't had to have a windshield replaced on it yet, I can see why it might cause issues. I'm actually perplexed why Jeep thinks it's a good idea to have glass sitting on top of a gasket instead of the edge sealed by it. The back glass is worse and literally just stuck to the back gate. I actually thought it might be flipper glass at one point.
The windshield actually looks like they forgot to run part of the gasket around it. It seems to me, that would create more potential for turbulance and wind whistle...or buzzing if it doesn't stick right.
It's a bad design, in my opinion and actually looks sloppy.
As far as the RSW, I agree that OEM should be used with this system. Aside from a system that uses other kinds of sensor technology not built into the glass, there's no getting around the need for pretty specific glass.
