Window tint

I'm getting tint done next week and was wondering if some of you guys would like to ***** out your trucks a little in hopes I would know what % tint I want. I don't want to go so dark I can't see out the back window at night. Also I was thinking about getting the side windows done, even though it's not exactly legal.
advice/comments/pics appreciated.

I have i think 20% ish. I had a tint shop put their gauge up to my windows. My rear and quarter windows are stock privacy tint. My side windows are 18% is what the gauge said.

We put 35% Carbon film on my parent contenental....looks awesome.

35% on the two front windows is the darkest by law in most states.

i have factory tint on the rear door glass and rear slider which is equivilant to about 15% or so

i just had the front windows tinted with 35%. it looks nice in my opinion. in my province no tint is allowed at all on the front windows so i went with 35% as its dark but you can still see through a bit from the outside.
