Re: Window tinting?

Has the visor strip affected your auto high/low sensor?

They didn't cover my dot matrix with the eyebrow which I assume to keep the sensor unblocked. Looks strange from the inside but not too bad from the outside. As long as its functional I guess.

Re: Window tinting?

I left work early yesterday and was able to grab a picture with my phone at dusk... as indicated before I have 20% 3M front Window Tint. I didn't touch the factory tint. The panoramic sunroof shade was rolled up so a lot of light was coming in through the roof.

No, my smart-beam function works just fine. However, I am not sure where the sensors are located for that. Aesthetically, from the outside, the strip looks odd because you can see a line around the rearview-dot matrix are where the strip is not adhered to the window. You don’t really notice inside. I'll try to grab a pic of that as well.

Re: Window tinting?

Here is a picture I photoshopped of user Nbtstatics' Dark Charcoal Overland (best color available) ;-) I added front matching window tints just to get an idea of how it would look. Looks amazing!!!
The tinter I use prefers Llumar films and as mentioned 15-20% is what matches OEM the closest.

Hehehe, anything else you want me to photoshop? Actually to be honest I would not do a single thing else to that car. That front window tint on that dark charcoal looks 100% perfect as is. It is soo clean doing anything else would just look sort of tacky. Man did Jeep really nail it on the head with this new Grand Cherokee.

Re: Window tinting?

Yeah thanks for the info and the photoshop tint looks awesome. One more question on this:

Do the cold temperatures have an effect on getting it done now versus waiting till spring?

I live in Connecticut and my WK2 is stored in the garage at night. Thanks again for the input.

One thing. Just give it an extra day to dry.

I live in Baltimore and in the past i've been told to wait three days before rolling a recently tinted window down. Because of the recent below 40-deg temps they advised me to wait 4-days. I've been going to the same place for over 10-years for all of my cars. I've had no issues so far.

I went with 20% and it matches perfectly... Bear in mind that film quality (ie brand) makes a difference..

You really dont have to wait. I have had windows tinted in middle of winter before and they turned out perfectly fine just the same as windows I have had tinted in middle of the summer. You arent really supposed to use the windows for a few days after they have been tinted and I think they will just recommend a few extra days during winter months. What I do recommend is still drive the car around take it to work and park it outside so the sun gets a chance to shine on the windows. That will help as well. The sun light/heat helps the drying process and also works out the water bubble that you see right after the windows are done.
