Like most Ford trucks, 1-1/2 tons use a bigger opening than 1/2's and
3/4 tons. The fenders sort of work the other way around, but are kind of
tight, tire wise, on the big wheels.

I can't say about mail order, but my experience in general is that if
you can get a local shop, to do the same work at near the same price,
local is the way to go. I got both sections of my windshield cut by a
fellow who works for a glass company by day and moonlights in his garage
weekends. I gave him my cracked piece (no sense taking chances on the
good one with the Ford logo) and, for $40 bucks he cut and edge ground
perfect replacements. This method does require an original glass as a
pattern, but it doesn't have to be intact.
