Default factory tint?

Is the factory tint a film tint or is the glass tinted? And if I can't peel it off is there a way to get rid of the mirrored finish? I want to tint the back windows darker but I don't want it to be mirrored.

I think the factory tint that is mirrored is a film

If it's mirrored, I don't think that is factory. The dealer might have installed a film. The factory tint is gray and is in the glass.

you can always go junk yard diving for untinted windows, then sell your tinted ones.

Replace the glass as it might be your only option if you dont like it. If all the glass has that tint, it could get expensive to replace all of it. Good luck!!

I've never seen a ranger with factory mirror tint... I would guess it's not a factory tint that's on your truck.... especially since you were able to peel it off

I didn't peel the tint off, I unbolted the window and took it out to get a better look at it
