Same on the SVT, except 15% on the front side windows for sure
You really want to do 10 or 15% when by law it can't be less than 50% VLT? I guess I wouldn't want to deal with a fix it ticket. The tint guy I went to said I probably wouldn't get bothered with 35% on the front side windows, but he said cops look at "tuner" vehicles a lot more aggressively than trucks.

If I can see out the back through the front, it is nowhere near dark enough.

For those of you who'd like to know that triple 5 on the back, double 5 on the sides, and single 5 on the windsheild looks like....

My truck for comparison (double 5 back, 28 sides, no windshield)

Pictures just dont do justice. You can walk up to that jeep with a mag light at night and have a hard time seeing in.

We had a guy with a sprinter van from fla come into work that had 5% on all the windows and had cut outs for the mirrors, then he had very light tint on the windshield. It was done very nicely and barely noticed it was on there at all, Kept light down but didnt make it hard to see at night.

I am a Professional Tinter out of Georgia the laws really vary from State to State. If interested go to http://www.iwfa.com/iwfa/Law_Chart/auto_statelaws.html for a complete chart on all 50 States laws regarding window tint. I did my truck in 30% all around including the Windshield.
