I paid $100 for tint on my 2001 regular cab. 35% on the sides, 20% on the back. I had SunTek Carbon, which is an excellent tint. I got a lifetime warranty too, but never needed it.

I get screwed because I have no factory tint so they have to do all five windows. I'm hoping to get this done before winter but who knows. Got a pretty health paycheck this week but I've got a credit card and insurance coming up quick to pay on. Maybe within the month.

concealed carry law, used to be had to be in a locked container in plain site, then it was closed container in plaine site but in a locked container could be anywhere in the vehicle or a locked glovebox or in a holster on you.

Now you can have it in a unlocked glovebox or center console and in a holster on you.

Double checking, 45% on the fronts? Because I like how that looks but just a little too light. I was going to go with 35% and 15% on the back three.

Thanks a ton for the pictures. Nice suby by the way.

The second picture makes it look lighter because I adjusted the lighting and contrast a little. The first is pretty accurate.

This is 5% all around. I think I paid about $200 for it in Maryland. I like the 5%...I like my privacy.

You're right. Since living in AZ, I haven't had any problems with the tint. But in Maryland I used to get pulled over all the time for tint, no seatbelt, or no front license plate. I am so glad I moved!!

And I definitely recommend the 5% on the driver/passenger windows, but it all depends where you live.
