Carlite is the only glass manufacturer to have Ford's approval to make the ones with the Ranger in the frit. They also have a Ford oval on the bottom corner. Retail is upwards of $350 for the '06+ shield. My cost is about $150 IF i can get it locally. If I can't, it'll have to come from Carlite. The non-ranger frit shields are made by many manufacturers, and generally windshield shops only pay about $30-50 per windshield....and because of the non-ranger frit shields being made by many manufacturers, they are cheap are readily avaliable. Cheap is the name of the game. I've seen 06+'s with the old ranger shields. The shields themselves, size and fitment wise) are the same from 93+, but the frit and tint(GB) are the differences in them. Happy you've got the good luck on your insurance covering the 06+ shield. I'm very soon going to see if mine will approve it. I've got the part number for the shield...the NAGS system part number that all the glass places use.
I used to work for Gaurdian. They manufacture all GM windshields for GM. They are made with GM logos etched into the shield...but when we sell them to non-GM companys as replacements, the GM logo is burned and covered up. Probably ALOT like what Carlite does.
