Re: '14 window tint

Tinting my Overland this week. I might have missed it but, if I wanted to get a darker than factory tint on the back, would they have to remove the factory tints and then add the darker tint? Or would they just put their film over the factory?

The glass is tinted, no film, so adding a film isn't a problem...at least that's how it was on my 2011 and I can't imagine the factory installing a film tint. If it is the same glass as the 2011's, here are the specs...this came from Chrysler two years ago when I emailed them regarding the factory tinted glass.

The tint on the rear side glass (side drop windows and quarter glass) provides a variety of functions. First and foremost it reduces the visible light transmission into the vehicle to approximately 18%.
Second, the entire UV spectrum is reduced such that less than 12% of the UV light passes through. This is 12% of a very small amount and virtually 0% transmission of UV light with wavelength less than 380 nm.
Also, this privacy glass blocks the IR (infrared) portion of the spectrum such that only 16% of the IR light passes through the glass.
This is the portion of the suns energy that contains the majority of the heat.'

Re: '14 window tint

I know that the factory tint is in the form of a tinted window and not a tint material, my question though is on the back window.

As i stated before we tinted my wife's car and on her back window because of the defroster the tint now has sort of like a spectrum of lights which emits from other vehicles headlights when driving at night. After close inspection the film has not adhered it's self fully to the defroster wire aming a very small line bubble, tint shop tells me that how it is and that it is worst on some windows with a specific degree of tilt.

Has any one experienced this on their GC once the back window is tinted with a film?

I've had good results with Llumar films in the past, and $50 sounds like a great price if the shop is reputable and does good work. I'm getting my two front's plus a windshield strip done tomorrow for $105.
