Looks good! how dark did you go?
I have a roll of lumar tint downstairs I bought for me and a friend who used to do it profesionally to do our trucks, but he moved before we had a chance to do it. I have been watching some how-to videos on youtube tho and am pretty confident i can do a good job of it. The most important thing is cleaning it an keeping the dust out so you dont get spots.

I have had all of my trucks in the past tinted, i say give it 2 or 3 days. plus or minus a day depending on the type of weather you have. If its cold i would give it an extra day. Keeping your truck in the sun light during the next day or two will help out alot.

One thing I would suggest, get blow drier and warm up the OUTSIDE of your windows... it will help get your moisture out a bit and don't roll your windows down or clean them for 5-7 days depending on if it's cold or humid (the cooler or the mode humid it is outside, the longer you have to wait) and you can use any window cleaner as long as it says ammonia free

that looks really good i have also been thinking about doing this myself as they want 45 dollars a window and that seems ridiculous as the materials are not nearly that expensive. anybody have a right up on it to someone tinting a ranger ive watched all the youtube videos and such it would just be nice to see it done on a ranger.
