Yep - all green. Only way I knew it was tinted was when I had the OEM one out, I had it laying on a white sheet as I was assembling things. The frame kinda disguises the tint in an optical trick.

After calling around a bunch of these big name auto glass places that wouldn't install my windshield, I found a small place not far from work that did it. $45 labor + $35 for their rubber. I'm happy with it. I'm not sure what rubber their supplier uses. The pisser about 4wd.com is they want a 15%-30% restock fee for their $16 rubber and I'd have to pay to have it shipped back..whatever so I guess it'll just sit on a shelf in my basement.

Yeah, usually the smaller shops will do it, just no warranty on glass breakage.

My Crown seal is still laying in the corner of the car port where I threw it when I cleaned the Jeep out after the installation was over... I should really clean up out there before winter hits...

I think I'd show them that first picture and tell them NO to the restocking charge!

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers in his JEEP!...

They want a restock fee for something that doesn't fit?

That's why I love Quadratec. Never had that problem with them.

I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

I had an issue and they offered to send out a label for me to send the item back (4WDH). I just took it back to the store and picked up the right part so I could confirm it first hand. I do like having 4WDH so close - just over an hour drive for me. Summit Racing is 45 minutes away too, so I try to shop there more, but 4WDH seems to have more of the items I need.
