Rough estimate of cost of tinting

So investing money into a stereo I wanna take some extra precautions to help make sure my stuff doesn't get stolen (plus I just want tint anyways) so I was wondering if anyone could give me a rough estimate on how much it'd cost to tint 2 windows to about the legal limit? I know prices vary everywhere but I'm wondering if I'm looking at like $200 or what. Any help is appreciated

there was a thread like this on one of these ranger forums, but i forget which site it was.. like you already know, it's gonna vary from area to area.

with that said, i had my 2 doors tinted for $45 each. i think that's gonna be one of the higher prices you'll see listed. there will be a few with prices a bit higher, but not much. more or less.. it seemed like everyone else paid less than that... i just can't remember exact numbers

yeah hopefully you should be able to. i can't see anyone charging anything higher than about 50 per window for tint. if so, make sure to shop around for a few different prices, lol.

One of my friend's owns a shop here, and is just slighly lower, not much, then the other places in town, plus he uses much better quality tint then the rest.

It was $75 to do my solid rear window, the door glass and a tint strip on the windshild. 5% on all.

He did Allie's old 4 door car, 5 full windows windshild tint stip for $165 with 15%

I have no power locks. It wouldn't benefit me as much as it's worth in my opinion, I dunno though, if someone has a good reason then I might but good alarms cost a lot and I'd be paying for a lot of stuff I can't use (can't get remote start cause I have a manual tranny). I like the way tinted windows look anyways and it seems it'd be a cheaper route.

you can have the remote start put on but some "major" shops wont do it. on the other hand a door actuator only costs about 10 bux and honestly, if you can wire up a set of fog lights you can do a basic alarm and door actuator for your truck on your own. a basic alarm would be a 3 wire connection and the door actuator for the driver side would be another 2 wires. so you really aint lookin at alot of work. the peace of mind of a noise maker is better than never having it. many thieves are not pros and would rather not deal with the hassle or possibility of getting caught.
