I don't think you can since they are flexible. I don't think any tint would take. You can buy some from Bestop (pricey) or get the Spiderweb Shade side screens. They are made to leave on all the time. Not really tint, but will screen the sun out.

Thanks, new to all of this. I know I saw a thread somewhere about buying panels tinted but I cannot find it.

Yeah, you can buy aftermarket tinted soft windows from any Bestop dealer. Bestop's will fit to the OEM soft top (afterall they make the OEM tops for Chrysler). They are <$200 for a set, expensive, but if that is what you are considering then go for it.

PM Quadratec, they are on the board and if you order directly through Joe, or whatever the rep's name on here is, then they usually ship for free.

I've seen it tinted with standard Walmart tint. It actually came out good. The person used limo tint and basically blacked out the soft top. It looked great. Ill probably do it this summer

I just got a set of the tinted panels for my soft top. I got the ones from Bestop from Quadratec. The look and fit just like the factory ones, only better since they are tinted.
Before:


After:

also tinted door windows

I also bought the besttop tinted windows and after about 2 weeks I noticed the rear pillars started to intent toward the middle. I believe this is due to the tight fit on the aftermarket windows. Has anyone had this problem?
