Any one have scratches in their side windows?

I was just wondering if its just me or if these newer trucks trap more dirt in the window seals. I have some pretty nasty scratchs on the drivers side and some decent ones on the passanger side too. Is this something i should try and have warranty? I had my 03 for like 2 years and it was never this bad and im almost positive when i bought the truck the windows were near perfect any ideas?

I have the same problem with my 05, the front windows looks like I took some 80 grit to them. For me I Think its because my truck is always parked down at the lake michigan beach about every night in the summer. I dont think ford would do anything for you, but it cant hurt.

I have the same issue... The tint on my front 2 windows is all scratched up... I am thinking it doesn't help that my tires stick out about 4 inches past the fenders... But dirt and all sorts of crap gets stuck in the rubber window seal...It sucks and pisses me off also...

I have a few small scratches on my windows but found some glass sealer that will take care of it. I will see if I can find the bottle and post the name..

Mine is an 06 and has scratches on all 4 windows. Ford knows about it all the way thru 08. There is a TSB out there, it's hard to find..............check it out.
