Window tinting?

If you have tinted you 2011 JGC windows, what % did you go with and how does it match the rear windows? Also has anybody put an eyebrow on and did it effect the auto high/low beams?

I just had my front windows tinted to 15% and it matches the rear perfectly.

Re: Window tinting?

Here are three pictures of the tinted windows. It is also hard to detect but I also had a clear bra put on it as well.

Re: Window tinting?

That looks great!! What do you think about an eyebrow. I've had them on my last 3 trucks and like the look, but I'm not sure how it will effect the auto high/low??

Re: Window tinting?

I just had ours done. Im not sure what % but the shop that did it looked at it and then just grabbed the tint... It matched perfectly. So I would assume any competent shop should be able to chose it correctly for you... thats what they do for a living.


Our windshild BROW comes flush with the factory "SPECKLE" tint behind the rearview...

It looks great but on a sunny day you can still see into the Jeep... I personaly tint for security reasons more than anything else... of course it keeping the vehicle cooler is a bonus... I may get the windows done darker in the future... the factory tint is just a shade to light in my opinion.

30 percent ceramic all around (not windshield) over the factory it looks great. There are pictures out there somewhere from when I first took it home.

Looks like you didn't tint the windshield... The sides look like a perfect match! Congrats!

Nevertheless, just wondering if anybody did the front windows + the windshield and what %... Tinting the windshield will make the side windows look darker.. Maybe 15% front + tinted windshield might come out slightly darker than factory..

Re: Window tinting?

Just had the SUV tinted... 20% sides + 40% windshield, looks spot on. Still have to wait for the tints to settle to be sure. Will try to post pics tomorrow with sunlight.
