Finally got my windows tinted

Hey all, I just got back from getting my windows tinted. I did the front in 20% and the back windows was stock. I also got a muffler from the cat back, it was like 2" piping and I went with 2.25" all the way back to like a 8" chrom tip.

Let me know what you think

Before:







After:






Here is a picture of my tip, it has a nice little rumble now



Let me know what you think.

Hey all, I will get a pic from further when there is some light outside. No I got a new muffler and pipe and tip. The dude said from the cat back to the muffler is like 2" piping so I went with new 2.25" piping back from the cat to the muffler and then back to the 8" chrome tip.

It has some rumble now but not as much rumble as some of you have. It's also only rumbles at a low rpm, like above 2500 rpm, it sounds stock, it's a magnaflow muffler

You can put those sensors in most wheels btw. Just unscrew the 12mm or 10mm bolt around the stem, push the sensor into the tire, lose air, take tire off, put sensor in new rim, bolt on, new tire.

Yeah, I gotta agree, I love tint. I love how dark it is with the 20%, sure darker would be better but my old Mazda 3 was at 20% and nowhere near this dark I love it.

I had a moron friend jump in my truck and the first thing he did was roll down my window, I was like WTF he was like I wanted to hear your exhaust. It came loose so I had to take it back and they had to cut some of it off and he said try this and if no good come back and I will redo it.

Fricking stupid people! Then when I ask him about it, he does say sorry but trys to play it off like if I have to get it redone, he is not responsible for it!

i like it....ive always had the idea that a good tint job and/or a suspension lift/drop are the best ways to give a vehicle attitude

I should have taken the fuse out but hopefully it will be ok.

Sorry I didn't get a rear shot yet, I totally forgot but tomorrow I will do it for sure. Like do you just want a shot of the whole back of the truck close to the ground or what type of pic?

I just love the tint. I need to go higher and get bigger wheels. I wish I could just drop the cash on a RCD lift and then get 35's but that stuff is expensive!

You only can't roll them down for the first couple of days, after they are 100% dry, you can do it all day and night if you want
