I think I'm suffering from post partum disorder.. :(

Anyway will be getting 30 (I forget if it's 32 or 35 or 30, but basically the darkest legal limit) on the front, and 05 on the back. It's supposed to be pretty darn DARK and that's ontop of my factory "privacy film".

Can't wait to see it in about 2-3 hours...

Lifetime warranty, llumar (sic) brand tint, and all for $149.99... Good deal?

I paid $80 here in Garland to redo the front windows to 30% and add a 0% window banner, and remove all the old crap. Life time warrenty as well.

yeah that sounds like it should look pretty damn dark, especially on a black truck!! i paid $45 for each front window to have them match the factory tint on the rest of the truck. i ended up givin the guy $120 becuase he basically let me stand there and watch him, he talked me thru what all he was doing, told me if it ever gets ruined or discolors, bring it back to him.. and plus i got there nearly 20 mins late due to a late doctors appointment, and he didnt give me a problem at all, he still fit me into his already tight schedule.

Prepare to not see out your back window at night...

The legal is 35% here.

Mine is 20% and rear is like 5% on top of privacy...

Alta Mere, they are right by Coit and Plano Pkwy in the south west strip mall. Ask for Randy and tell em I sent ya. Be warned he will give you an great discount, but he'll want you in that day to use it. You could probably barter with him on that though. I got 30% front windows, and 5% rear windows. On top of the factory "privacy tint" it's pretty darn dark. I can't see a dang thing behind me when it's night, unless there's a light bulb attached to it... :)

Pics of my tint hopefully will get posted today.

MINES DARKER!! He he, really, in this sun, people cant tell the diff between 35% and 20%, and 20 looks so much nicer.

The bright sun, reflects through it alot during the day.
