I just got my windows tinted yesterday, they are 5% all the way around and the back glass is 20, so that I can still see to back up at night. I also got a 5% strip across the top of the windshield The two back doors are 5% on top of the factory 20%, and they are dark as hell!! You can't even see in them if you put your face to the glass!

Logan likes it dark.

I'm gonna just go with 20 all the way around. Lucky for me I'm an inspector.

I guess Ive got the darkest then:punk: I got pulled over and the cop put his little meter on it and asked me what it said since he couldnt see it the truck is too tall(or he was too short). Anyway he said legal limit on the front doors is 28% +/- 1%. Mine was 1%. Gave me a ticket for improper equipment and said next time he was gonna give me a razor blade:eek:. Oh well I just dony go through that town anymore. By the way mine is 2 layers of 5% all the way around and a strip of 5% that is 12" tall across the top of the windshield. My old regular cab was the same way but had 20% from the bottom of the top strip to the bottom of the windshield. Talk about dark:cool:

Yeah, mine is pretty dark and a lot of people get in my truck and ask how the hell I can see. I think if you are going to do all the sides dark, it is better to do it all the way around, that way it does not kill your night vison, but still, dang, thats dark:eek:

That is really dark. I really think it's borderline unnecessary. I mean I had 5% on my old chevy and I couldn't see in even on a sunny day beating right in through the tint. Why do you need it so dark? I mean i'm a fan of dark windows, but there may come a time where you may wish that tint wasn't there. Say when you don't see the improperly dressed jogger until you've already splattered him on everywhere..

Why do you need it so dark?
Its a matter of want not need. Why do you need "TST PMCR R49/Digital Boost&Pyro*ATS/PPE Xcelerator*AEM Brute Force*straight pipe*6" silverline tip*Autometer Phantom boost/pyro on a-pillar*305/55/R20 Nitto Terra Grapplers*20x9 MB Motoring "Shaker"????? You dont need it, right? You want it. I've also been driving with windows that dark since I was about 13 (thanks mom and dad) so I'm used to seeing through it. Its kinda like gettin used to wearing stunna shades at night.

ON EDIT: I guess you do need all that stuff so that Dodge will run. :poke

Okay, point taken. But those mods that I listed in my signature don't affect my vision especially at night, and that's part of the debate at hand. Also, if you really want to take a shot at a common rail dodge that is modded like mine vs a 7.3 modded like yours, let's line them up and see who comes out on top! You'll be making excuses for power loss from those 39's versus admitting a clean whooping from a quicker truck. I'm not knocking the 7.3, but lets be real here.
