Ya I know but I kind of wanted a glossy black there. I'll see how it looks once I yank them off. Thanks!

Not yet. Give me a couple days. I leave when it's dark and get home when it's dark so it's hard to get good pictures.

Rakyu, i'm thinking about tinting my front windows.

How much did it cost you? Is that the "legal" amount of tint on the front windows?

I had all my windows done. I did 35% on the back windows and 20% on the front two and the eyebrow. The front two plus eyebrow cost around 50 dollars here and all the windows cost me 145.

i'd be interested in seeing more pics of your windows.

i'm leainging towards getting 50% on my fronts, for legal reasons but i'm wondering if it will come out darker due to the factory tint.

if anyone has 50% tint on their wrangler could you please post pics?

I believe the factory tint in the rear is darker than that but I could be wrong. I have always had dark windows and have never been ticketed though... knock on wood. Lol. It's just a risk I am willing to take I guess.

The pics I posted earlier in this thread have 50% fronts, 95% on the rears and tint strip on windshield.

edit: more angles





50% doesn't do much during the day, but at night (plus a clean window) it puts a healthy glare on.

it seems like most people in this thread have their windows tinted.

i'm debating between 35% or 50% in the front.

has anyone had problems with the cops and their tint?

it all depends on state laws... regardless of the law, it's always and excuse to pull you over. I never had any problems @ 50%. I'm pretty sure all the cops around here have a good idea whats darker than 50% though

my state law requires no less that 50% in the front. I'm just trying to determine how much flak i will get for 35% because I do like those better.

However, since there is already some type of anti-glare/tint pre-installed on the front windows (even though its very light), I'm wondering if getting 50% on top of that will make them slightly darker

I think most vehicles have a low (like 5%) tint on all windows from the factory...depending how big of a @#*$! the cop is, it will test out higher than legal w/ the added tint. Just be polite and I doubt you'd have any problems if it ever came about!

yea, i don't think 50% would cause a problem and 35% seems like a coinflip.

at night though, 35% might look like black out which would def. get you pulled over, and i don't want to not be able to see out the side windows (not sure if thats a problem with 35%)

have you had any problems with scratching your tint rolling your windows up and down?

Regarding tint, I had 20% on all windows and top of front window on my STi. It actually came like that and I found it too dark (almost unsafe on side streets at night). I've been pulled over several times and the cops never questioned the tint...just my speeding. I've talked with a neighbor police officer and he said that he'd only pull someone over for tint if he thought they were doing something else illegal as 'fix it' tickets weren't worth it.
