tint looks good but in my personal opinion i would have gone darker on the front windows and then got a front window strip but it looks good none the less

haha thanks guys i appreciate it. I would have liked to have gone darker but the tint Laws in NC say 35% and a couple shops i had talked to said that inspection stations in my area are cracking down on illegal tint....sooo...i didnt want to have to swap windows out every inspection.

I wish i got darker but i suppose its dark enough...it is a little to dark in the rear window at night when im backing up.

Anyone know if i can run some normal advanced auto driving lights by using a wire tap in my reverse lights or will it not be enough juice to run the reverse lights bright enough? Id rather not have to run crap from the front of the truck to the back is all.

Ive got the 4 pronged wiring harness.

Thanks again guys! my baby has come a long way haha

Just get some lights from Harbor Freight and use those. Cost me 8.99 and there bright as crap. I just used the switch that came with the kit but you could easily wire up a relay so they come on with the factory reverse lights. Short version: no that won't work lol. Theres a HF in Durham, I can pick up some lights for you and meet up somewhere if you want.
