I have 20% all the way around except the front windshield. My buddy owned a tire shop that did window tint, he charged me 75.00 for 3 windows.

I tinted mine the week I got it, just tinted to match the back privacy windows. The guy that did it said I can go two shades darker and it can still be legal. (not that you have to worry about the police) I paid $45 because I worked at a dealership that uses their business a lot. If i didn't it would have been like $85 Idk if you have any near you, but if you do I recommend Ziebart. Cheap, fast, and great professional install.

My truck has absolutely no tint anywhere.

I want some privacy glass for my back window. You can see wayyyy too much of me through it, and I don't like that at all.

Personally, i'm not concerned with the front door glass, i'm more worried about the rear window and the quarter windows.

IMO, offset tint from back to front looks terrible.
Im all for tint, as long as it all matches.
I matched my sides to the stock rears at 20% I think from
what I remember is what the stock rears are. It only cost $70,
but if money were no issue i would go 5% all the way around.

Now only if I could find someone who will be willing tint my windshield....

Tint It!! Thats what i have on mine, limo on the back and 20% on the front. I think they look really good like that. If you already have the stock tint on the back put 20 or 15% on it, that will make it limo. Oh and get a limo strip for the winsheild!

now is there any charge for tinting a lifted truck? since it's probably a more pain in the ass? haha.
