That dosen't pass the smell check. :confused: Sorry but, tell the moron at the tint shop that's just total bullshit. The felt striping will not scratch the tint!! If I were you I wouldn't do bussiness with them...

Titan the guy at the tint shop is right. on the 03 Rams, dodge put rubber instead of felt in the doors. Rocks and dirt could get down there and scratch the tint. If you went to the dealer they would replace your rubber with felt.

problem was corrected on 04 trucks and put back to felt

Get your money back! I have tinted windows and never had them scratch as you describe. Ditto on the go and do business somewhere else.
And if they don't work with you,,,get on the web and put in a complaint at the Better Bus. :cool: Bureau.
By the way, where are you located (state/city) so that I don't run into the same shop.

Have not had the problem with the SRT...and my windows are always up and down. Had the TSB done on the Hemi because I did have the scratching to the front windows on that truck.

I also used a titanium tint on the SRT...There is a consistent problem with these trucks and that seems to be the door seal on the A post. I believe there is a thread on this with a TSB for it.

The quality of the tint is also a factor. There is some real cheap tint (3M?) and then there's excellent tint that is made not to scratch. My '03 did it and the '04's don't but I use the best tint I could find. :)
