Does any know what percent the factory tint is on the hard top for a 2008 JK? We are slow at work today and want to get the front roll downs done but dont need to get a ticket for them being to dark. Thanks
You may want to check state laws. I grew up in midwest and they harassed most of my friends for the tint being too dark. My front windows are close to the hard top and it does get a little difficult checking mirrors when windows are up, especially in the rain at night.
Thanks for the help. thats what i was thinking it was. so now i have to decide if i want to risk it or not.
in the state of illinois you can have 35% on all windows. if you have anything darker on the behind driver windows, you are not allowed to tint your front windows at all. Unless its factory tint which is what mine is you can have 55%.
My thing is as soon as i put my soft top on the factory tint goes away as i have the 3 piece so i would technically only be illegal when i have my hard top on for 4 months.
I just had 20% installed professionally and it is darker than the back windows and hard top. I'm taking it back and having 30% installed. His tester says the light transmission is the same, however, the eye test says the front doors are darker now.
