ShakaBrahTJ This is probably a better idea than what I did. I used 20% regular window tint on the front. Worked great at first but has started "unsticking" in areas due to bending the window when putting it up and down. The cling stuff could be taken off and reapplied. My back Windows are still great, but I don't bend those.

Window tint guy told me the plastic windows really aren't supposed to be tinted over because they release a small amount of gases. But I did anyway.

Here's mine right after being done.

Wattapunk The back came tinted with my top. So far it's working well. Hard doors would be alot easier to tint because it's really made for real windows. I do recommend leaving a tiny gap around the window so the adhesion is better. So far with the heat, the adhesion is alot better due to the windex drying out. I figured if I ever get pulled over for illegal tint, I can just take remove it in front of the officer to maybe avoid a ticket.

Jeeper_Kreeper Did you do your back window and side windows too?

fourty4magjr You know that turned out pretty darn good! Nice job!

CharTay Impressive!

Dusty Rhodes Wonder how it would work with hard doors? It looks great on your jeep and should help keep it much cooler.

06GoldenEagle looks like it worked alright

REVIEW: tinting front plastic windows with cling/peel tint

There's numerous debate regarding tinting the plastic windows and I figured and try using the cling/peel 20% tint sold at autozone. I figured it's worth a try for only $12 for both windows. I never unzip my windows. It's either only up or off. I'm too cheap for sliders but figured $12 is worth a try. Very straight forward, same process as regular tint.
1) took windows inside on my kitchen table, clean/wipe with windex
2)spray windex on plastic windows and apply tint.
3)I trimmed using sharp scissors, following the window stitching. DON'T USE A RAZOR BLADE!! You might cut the stitching.(most tedious process)
4) squeegee and done.. Took a total of 45mins: Here's pics 2 days after and 95 degrees. Very pleased. There's a few small bubbles I need to squeegee out. Definitely on there good after 2 days in the outside heat. Don't know long term or with windows unzipped but cheap investment and easily removal:
