Tint

Can you guys post some pictures of your tint. Was thinking of just having whats on the back doors on the front or would darker be better?

Has anyone also done the front winshield?

here is a pic of the side of mine. I have 5% tint on the side windows. The rear has two layers of 5% film, while the front windshield has 35% tint all the way down with a limo strip up top.

Every truck i have ever owned i blacked out the windows...pros would be you can not see inside your truck from the outside... cons your more likely to get pulled over for having illegall tint, hard to see at night.

I get pulled over all the time for it. never had to pay a fine though. Cops around here are pretty cool about it considering most patrol cars have illegal tint as well.

I'd just get the same as on the back windows. Darker would look wierd. Tinting the windsheild is technically illegal.

True, but when I stop by the pub for a beer or two after work I can choose not to speed. I can't choose not to tint.
