The tint it should have would be blue throughout and not a gradaided strip across the top. Yours ^ appears tinted.

Eh Guys - for those that have purchased here from Summit - what's the packaging like?

If I have one sent up here across the line, it can't go back - not effectively anyways. And I don't want to buy something that arrives cracked.

Love to hear your experience on the packaging that these arrive in- thanks.

Major back order on the windshields.If you recall I received a cracked windshield from bad UPS freight shipping in July. Summit placed a new order which was scheduled to come in Aug. I called them in late Aug when I didn't receive a confirmation and they said it wont be coming till Nov! SO if your not in a rush then place your order but expect to wait for a long ass time!

I got one of those windshields and like Colbino said it is tinted throughout but Summit website shows a graduated tint up top and when I recieved mine I called Summit and asked about the tint and was told it should be graduated up top like the shown on the ad site,,,Go Figure~~

Byron:the glass comes in a rather larger box with inner supports for top and botton of the glass and lots of foam padding molded to support the inside of the box. Was a bitch to get the windshield out which is good.

Byron, I just opened mine. Here are a couple of shots of the packing. It's in one piece.
