back three windows are 15% Tint and the front two are 35%. IMO, this is perfect, not too dark, not too light

I have the stock tint on the rear and 35% on the front, pics here: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/vehic...my-ranger.html

If I had to do it again I would get 20% on the front. The 35% is pretty light on a sunny day.

You can get as dark as you want. You have to sign a waiver that you dont hold them responsible if you get pulled over.

Really as long as your not out acting like a douche a cop isnt gonna stop you for tint. They would have to be really picky to hit ya for 8% if you went with 20%


Mine is driver/passenger 20%
Rest 5%

When I get my truck safety inspected I roll the windows down. Here 35% is the limit on the driver/passenger.

We generally take out vehicles to the Highway patrol and have them safety inspected. I hate taking them to repair shops. They always try to pull a fast one on ya. They will say this or that needs replaced and we can do it today for 200 dollars.

yeah i know, repair places are the worst. they always say you need to get a crap load done and want you to pay crap load of money when its actually nothing. my bro took his ranger in to get his tires rotated and balanced and when he went to pick it up they had this paper with tons of stuff the apperently need to be done to his truck when he only went there for the tires. a week later he went to change oil or something under the hood and there was the air filter sitting on his engine. so they aperently got in his hood and pulled it out and left it up there. they are so dumb, so he is not going back there
