Default Windshield Glass Replacement Cost??

Has anyone priced replacing the windshield glass in their trucks lately??? How costly is it? I guess they can't order so they just cut to size?

I just replaced my windshield a few weeks ago. I took them the frame with the old glass still in it so they could use it as a template, they cut it perfectly, reused the gasket and handed me back the frame in less than an hour. They used 1/4" laminated safety glass with a small amount of bevel so it wouldnt cut into the rubber. (BTW, I used Ace autoglass in Lowel) and $120 bucks later I could see out again.

I think mine was $150 or so for the 725, but it's a bigger windshield than the 715s.

That's the same as what I paid for mine.

I think mine was $120 with a new gasket. I got clear because I didn't want to worsen the reflected glare at night.

My total for the front windshield, new front rubber, rear hard top glass (tinted) and new rear rubber was just below $200. I took the windshield frame and hard top to them so they didn't have to crawl around on the truck to do it which saved me some too.
