5% is very dark, I have it on my back window right now, but its old and faded to purple. It definitely is tough to see through at night. I am thinking of just removing it.

Didn't mean to scare you, my tint is at least 6 years old, probably older.It was a Florida truck too. If he is using high quality tint, you'll be fine for years.

Factory is like 15 or 18? I would stick with 15... that's what I have on my front two and stock privacy on the back three....

the tint will not turn purple if you use cleaners that does not have ammonia in it.

I just had mine done 15% and love it. I can still see at night and everything. But is still dark in the day. Don't get me wrong, 5% would have been nice and looked great; practical for me---no. I have to back a boat trailer at night when I fish late, so I need to be able to see. The 15% also provides lots of shade on sunny days

man i dont know which one to get lol mine is a single cab so i think i will be able to see easier then a ex-cab. i can just poke my head out the side window and check it out for backing up lol if i had to that is. i'm pretty confident with the %5 percent. people who have it just love it. and people who have %15 love it to. its like picking out a exhaust hahaha! thnak's everyone for the info! i very appreciate it

Had a truck in highschool with 5 all the way around. Loved it and looked great.
Next truck I just had a light factory tint. My new Ranger has 5% on the back and it took a day or two to get used to but I like it. Also I have a brow which is great for the 5' o'clock drive home. I'd say go 5 on the back and if your doing the sides do 15. Only time its real tough is if your always in the country or on dark highways. But otherwise its not bad.
