My replacement windshield with the pony logo was only $235 installed. No leaks or anything, just like OEM.

I need to have mine replaced on my 05 GT..So you are saying Safelite is way to go? The glass company my insurance wants like $670 to replace the windshield!! My deductible is $500 so I want to shop around... I will check out Safelite, but any other suggestions I would appreciate

You are generally going to get a better deal not going through your insurance company.

Depends on what state you live in. Glass coverage in MD is subject to your deductible. When I lived in NY and AZ, glass coverage was included and had a zero deductible.

mine was replaced with out the pony after my deer crash. but it has the same dot pattern as the oem (minus the pony) on the inside and dark tint along the top. at first i wasnt sure i liked it but its way nicer in the 100+ degree sun down here. :yelpleased:

Windshield replacement

Just get it resin injected, you will barely be able to see the repair and you won't have to worry about replacement leaks

I had mine replaced about a year ago with the OEM Ford Pony, etc.,...I decided to pay for it rather than report it to the insurance company (I paid $250)...so far so good...only thing was that the installer placed the windshield a tiny bit closer to the passenger side and as a result the black plastic frame at the very top passenger corner is a bit misshapen...you wouldn't notice it unless I pointed it out to you. Just make sure that the installer aligns it evenly from side to side (they only have a few minutes to make that little bit of adjustment once the windshield touches the black urethane sealant)...
I've had no rattles, leaks, or wind noise...(knock on wood).
Definitely go with the OEM Ford Pony Windshield...

P.S. I replaced it because I had a very small chip, the size of the letter "o" in my line of vision...drove me crazy...especially when the rest of the windshield was clear. I just kept focusing on it and it was a real distraction...I know that sounds crazy, oh, well...

I used Safelite.They did a great job...Had it done it my garage.Set up appoinment online and they made all the arrangements with the insurance company.Imagine my suprise when they tech showed up and turns out he was a Mustang guy.This was my second windshield that was cracked due to road construction.The first replacement made noises at highway speeds...This one is fine.
