Tinted windows?

Does anyone have pics of their rigs with the front windows tinted? I have the soft top with the tinted sides and was wondering what the front windows would like tinted.

It looks good. There's a bunch of them around here tinted. I want to get mine tinted, but I'm lazy.

I went out and snapped a photo of my Jeep. Tint has been on there for 8 years and still looking good. I had it matched to the factory tint on the other windows. It would not pass inspection in Delaware, too dark. My wife (at the time) worked for a doctor and she had a letter printed that said I suffered from "photo phobia" and needed tinted windows. Worked like a charm.

I live in Texas now, doesn't seem to be an issue here.

Yeah,
I was just gonna ask how you got past my German Shepherd,
and out of my garage without losing a limb from either him ripping one off,
or me blowing one off!

I can't tell if Wrangler drivers with tinted windows are observing the wave and don't know if I have been snubbed. I feel Jeepers with tinted windows should be required to roll down their driver side door window and stick their arm way out waving frantically to avoid any possible confusion.

I'm going to get my front windows tinted hopefully in the next few days and I'm excited about it. Just means more security for my interior. I'm gonna see how dark I can get them here in CO without having them illegal, don't feel like having to go back to lighten them

FYI - I've had all my cars done for the past 10 years or so - in Seattle the legal limit is 35%, but all mine have been 15% (not limo tint, but dark enough to pretty much hide you) and have never had the cops give me a hard time.

Should cost about $100-125 for a good tint job on the front windows. IMHO it's worth paying a little more to have a professional do this vs buying the stuff at the store that will end up peeling off or being a weird shade of purple.

Good site, now I know why Delaware wanted me to remove the tint and not a problem in Texas. Delaware law is 70% light must pass through and Texas is 25%, big difference.
