Window tint?

Got my 2012 Laredo a few months back and right after, I got a 35% window tint on my front windows to try and match the back two better without breaking the law. I thought it was nice for a while but now I am really wishing I just went ahead and got 20% to match it perfectly.

From all those out there with the 20% on the front windows, have you had any trouble with cops at all? I want to do this really bad but am still scared I'll get tickets and have to redo the windows for even more money! Let me know what you think

Re: Window tint?

if 35% is the legal limit in your state, then stay with it unless you are willing to pay for the tickets. Have to pay to play.

Re: Window tint?

I've never received a ticket for tint in any state that my WK has been registered (IL or TN) in. My tint setup was/is illegal in some way or another.

Re: Window tint?

35% is the limit here in IL and I have 20% to match the rears. I have never been hassled.

Re: Window tint?

I have 20% on my fronts and worry too.. But I have the pano roof so it really doesn't look illegal dark.. Especially with the sunroof open... But I have rolled my windows down when seeing a cop lol.. My wife makes fun of me for it

Re: Window tint?

For everyone that has illegal tint, how does your jeep pass inspection?

I got my front sides tinted to 35% and I would like to have 20% but I am very happy with what I have.
