That's why I don't black out my rear window. It would be completely legal to do it, but I'm not going to sacrifice night visibility.

My only reason to do it would be to help conceal my sub, but it's totally not worth not being able to see.

I love the 5% on the back window and back half side windows. I only got 20% on my driver and passenger. I had 5% on my 03 ranger and hated it a lot I always had to roll the window down at night to see before turning.

My sisters X husband spray painted his rear window black in his car.

not true, in florida you can have 15% back and rear window tint, 28% front window, and non-reflective tint above a certain line on the windshield, you can also get any reflectivity, color, and the manufacturers of the tint don't need to certify the tint in florida, so its probably the easiest state to get a 15% or less tint in

While were talking about tint laws:
What are dual side mirrors?

"Side Mirrors: Dual side mirrors are required if back window is tinted."

Default Duel side mirrors

That means you have to have a mirror on the passenger side of the truck also. Same here for Nc .. black back window duel side mirrors

If the cops are going to give you problems about window tint%. Then PAINT your windows black. "Hi, deputy its not window tint its paint, have a nice day!!"
Also if tint has to be a certian %, whats the law on those rear window murals? The ones that have wolves, dophins, flags, eagles????

Obviously you neglected to point out your sticker that said "Police Interceptor", I'm sure that would have gotten you off the hook.

It's a rear window....ever heard of panel vans?

If you're talking about those flags and insignia back window covers, they're printed on vinyl that has a crap ton of holes in it. It's totally visible from the inside and at a distance, you can't even tell there's holes. Unless you're talking straight up murals like something on a van from the 80's sitting in front of the middle school..
