Pics of DSG with 20% tint?

Does anyone have pics of a DSG extended cab Ranger with 20% tint? I'm going to have my FX4 tinted & the tint shop says 20% matches the rear tint very closely. I've always went 15% on my previous vehicles so I want to see if 20% will be dark enough.

No problem, it was a sweet truck but he traded it in on a new F-150. It's still at the dealership if you want it lol

It will take a couple of hours to get all the tint and all of the film off. It's a pita.

like i read on here before. Roll your windows down, assuming their auto, and pull the fuse out so that cant come up...I dont think they have to be up during an inspection?

Just don't try to do any night offroading, lol -- not if you need the windows up.

You guys with your tint -- it's a terrible idea for offroading. Must be for the street-queen crowd, lol...

True, night driving can be a pain in low-light areas. But here in FL it makes a huge difference when I get into the truck after work. Instead of a rolling boil, I only get a slow simmer, (Until the a/c kicks in.)

I got the truck tinted today. They did 20% on the sides & it seems to match the rear privacy glass about perfect. The front strip is 5%.

not something you want to get into. removed some off my ranger today and it was a pain. took several hours. definitely use a steamer if you have access to one. here's a link to get you started.
