I lived in Phoenix for a few years, if I was a cop there I would dig a tunnel from the station to my house, lord that was a scary place.

I've lived just outside of phx for 12 years now and grew up in small-town Ohio. Haven't been scared yet, but like any large city, it has it's areas that are questionable.
The law here is 33% on front doors and no limit on the back windows. My front doors are darker than that and I never had an issue with getting stopped. It does get difficult seeing at night but worth it since its the same strength as my back windows. I bought it this way.

I have the soft top tinted since June. It's worth the try. The stuff is $7/roll. I found that the 1 roll does the 2 side windows. I didn't do the back one though.

ya no city cop is going to fret over such trivial equipement violations when they are so busy with bigger things. i have never had an issue on my limo tint on my benz here in the valley for over three years now, but the moment i hit the highway to go to flagstaff, it is inevitable that dps pulls me over and walks up with their pathetic tint meters.
