They have worked fine so far. I do live in Puerto Rico where the sun is pretty strong. I must admit though that I haven't really paid attention to this during sun down as I only get to enjoy those on the weekends. I will keep you posted.

As far as tint %s I am have to agree with jonnyg, 15% is a correct match regardless of whether you tint the windshield or not.

Where did your get the Tint and clear bra done? May I ask what they charge you? I will go back to R&M Window Tint since they have done a great job my last two vehicles.

Re: Window tinting?

I got my tint and clear bra done at Touch of Shade off Austin Bluff and Academy. The tint on the front windows is 3M he charged me $99. The clear bra he did the front bumper, 18" up on the hood and under the door handles for $600. The clear bra was also a 3M product.

Funny. I live in Puerto Rico too. Where did you go to have them put up?

Security reasons? Are you some kind of secret double-agent or something?

15 percent on driver and passenger. Perfect match.

I had mine tinted less than a week out from the dealership. The brand they used was Johnson and I chose 20% which matches the rear perfectly.

Re: Window tinting?

What prices and what brands were used by you guys who had the window tinting done?

I looked through this thread as well: Window TInt Caution for WK2.....

Some good information in there just trying to get as much as I can before I have it done as I did not have it done on my last Jeep. Thanks in advance.

Re: Window tinting?

I had my front windows tinted locally at D&L Window Tinting.

I have the 3M Film, which comes in 35% (darkest legal in MD), 20% & 5%. I went with 20%, looks great, perfect match and when I roll back the sunshade enough light comes through incase I get stopped (ticketable offense in MD and consodering I am checked into work by MPs each morning thats a good thing). Cost = $129+tax.

Windshield is not tinted (illegal in MD) but I do have a 7" inch visor strip that is 5%. Cost = Free (I had a coupon from the internet)

I didn't spring for the clear 3M bra (its on the wife's R350 - $800 for 24" onto hood, didn't price out he JGC) as I am rarely on the highway, mostly country roads for me. But I did get clear 3M inserts inside the door handles. Cost = $20 for all four.

I'd post pics but I don't have any and its too dark when I leave work. Maybe this weekend.
