i may be better off going to a " private party " to have mine done then. he did say that he would cut it out and let me install it myself, but ihave no clue on how to do that. i know i would screw it up....

I had 20 put on the front of my X. Not as dark as the factory in the back. 43 aint much at all. I like the 20 it is not to dark.

I have 5% all around over factory tint minus the windshield. 15% matches the rear tint on the ouside but when your in the truck the 15% is actually darker.
