Window tint question...
 
This may be a dumb question, but when you guys tint your windows, do you do the front (full steel doors) as well? Or just the back (hard top)?

Ive seen a few TJs with only the back windows tinted and the front untouched. Is this the more common look? Any pros/cons to doing it this way opposed to tinting all of em?

Was thinking of going 35% in front and a darker 20% in back.

Thanks

Both my hardtop and softtop were tinted from the factory. I've seen some untinted, so I assume it was an option.

I tinted my hard door windows along with the soft top and hard top both tinted. And i would stay at legal limit which here is 35. Think its the same most places. Just would hate to get pulled over for something and then get another ticket for window tint...

Nope,,, not the same in most places.. Northern states, and I'm speaking very generally, the maximum tint is 70 for the front door glass, same as the windshield,, a sedan or coupe cannot have anything else except 70 anywhere... SUVs and vans have no requirements for rear windows., but the windshield and front door windows, once again can be no more than 70... To the op, to be on the safe side, tint the rears all you want, but leave the fronts alone...

Oops. Sorry. Good to know for the future

Thanks guys...

Legality aside for the moment, what is the traditional method cosmetically?

Do most people tint all 5 windows (2 doors, 3 hard top)? Or do most of you guys just tint the back 3?

Any pics would be appreciated. Thanks again!

Did you tint the front windows as well then to match the back? Or left them clear?

My front steel doors are untinted like they came from the factory.

thgr8alex 07-07-2013 09:46 PM

I tinted all 5, i wanted them all to match

My Rampage top had dark plastic windows, so I got the front full door windows tinted to match. I wouldn't have it any other way. It's illegal in my state, but I generally have the windows down unless parked anyway... and I don't drive like an asshole to draw attention to myself.

Thanks for the feedback!

After a lot of thought, I think I'll get all 5 tinted. Especially cause my Jeep is black. I kinda like that look.

Now just to decide if I'm going 20's in the back or 35's all around... hmmmmmm?

gcan 07-08-2013 06:27 AM

if it's a DD I would recommend keeping it legal for your area....I've had friends that pushed it and when checked by the police have had to have it removed or face fines

Mine's tinted all the way around minus the windshield. But my front windows are tinted, as are the hard top rear and very back window.

Depends on where you live. Some states don't allow the front to be tinted, whereas others have a legal restriction as to how much light can be shone through. I've had cops aim their spotlight in my driver's side window before at a stoplight but nothing came about it because he could clearly see me lol. I know here in CO, you can't have windows tinted limo tint unless you have a business license. I can tint my back more, but not really my front.

My hard and soft tops were pre-tinted by the factory. I had my full doors tint matched to legal levels. Brought it to a apple auto glass company so if anything goes wrong later i have a warranty to work with.
