Price Points
2004 Ford F-150 (2-door standard cab solar windshield with third visor frit)

For its recurring Price Points department, AGRR magazine surveyed five major cities in the United States for the windshield replacement on a 2004 Ford F-150 (2-door standard cab solar windshield with third visor frit). As usual, the companies were told that insurance will not be involved and the customer wishes to pay for the windshield out of pocket. 

AGRR also asked shops to break out parts and labor. When available, this is noted to the right. In some cases, shops were not willing to provide the breakdown—or would only include a portion of it—and this is noted accordingly.
