It does not look like a rock impact.

Crack originates from the base of the frame and is about 1" long.

The windshield has not been touched.

The Jeep still has the dealer applied wax.

I tried to dig out, by hand, some mostly buried railroad ties in the front yard. They were water-logged and pinned together with rebar.

Then I got smarter.

All four of these came out in one pull, with no effort at all.

I wish I had taken pictures, but I was in Moab the week before the Easter safari and got to see some of the cars Jeep brought down. Pretty cool stuff that they really need to consider producing. One of them was driving an Egyptian spec military wrangler with a diesel.

Man the "frosting on the pumpkin" (turn on the heater dad), takes me back to the good old days.

Could be a damaged glass from the factory. A chip(a clam in the trade)on the edge can cause a stress fracture later. If it emanates from underneath the trim I don't see how else it could happen.
Your windshield is two pieces laminated together. If the crack is on the inside that pretty much eliminates the possibility of external causes. You should be able to feel the crack with a razor blade, check if it is inside.
