I always liked white trucks with highly tinted windows. The contrast just look perfect.

You'll get stopped for sure. And they def look at tint u less they are cool. Front window is an instant failure.

Looks good though. Suck driving in tigh spots at night cause you can't see a damn thing.

I'm not too worried about it. I haven't driven it much since yesterday because I can't roll the windows down.

Hopefully your tint laws aren't enforced. Looks good though.

Now what do you say about the tint laws here? I know the PD had those tint meter things but I have never heard of anyone here getting hassled for dark tint. Do they enforce it at all?

Looks good. I wouldn't have done 5% on the front windows myself....but it still looks good.

I have 10% (I believe...previous owner did it....could be 15%). Its perfect in my opinion.

My Bronco has 20% on the front and 5% on shell windows and back window. You can't see much of anything at night, unless there's a light source behind it. You for sure can't see in at night...impossible. And you can barely see in during the day.

Colorado's tint laws are no darker then 26%....but i've never had an issue. *Knock on wood*

Another thing I have on my Ranger is a tinted windshield "brow." I didn't think i'd like it when I first bought the truck, but its definitely grown on me.

So how long should I wait to roll down my windows? My friend got his done yesterday too and they told him to wait 72 hours. He got his done at a different place though.

Alright. It'll be parked in the garage here in a few hours for the next couple of days anyways so it should be fine for the next time I drive it.
