Windshield Tint

Does anyone know what the black box behind the rearview mirror on a 2006 jeep grand cherokee is for? Its on the windshield and has a camera looking thing on the front? And can you put a winshield tint strip around it?

Re: Windshield Tint

You probably have the Limited or Overland. I got my Front Windshield fully tinted with 50% tint. My tint guy cut around the Rain sensor and the highbeam sensor (Which is the black box)

Re: Windshield Tint

Yea I have the Limited.
Do you think it will be unsafe to put a strip around the box with all the liquid and other materials being used for the tint? Because I dont want to ruin any of the electrical stuff in the box or mirror.
Thank you for your reply

Re: Windshield Tint

Just had mine done as well. 50%. They cut around the sensor and it looks perfect. Any profesional Tinting company will no how to do this. Just verify that they have done it before. Also, they will remove the mirror to avoid any electrical damage.

Re: Windshield Tint

Ok thanks for the reply. Did they leave both the mirror and the box on the windsheild when they cut the tint for the windshield or did they take the mirror off? And is it possible for someone to post a picture so I have an idea of what it looks like? Thanks

Re: Windshield Tint

any half descent tint shop wont be phased by this. Most shops will just tape off the area, remove the mirror and cut the tint around it. Do not tint over where the sensor is or you'll get false readings or no readings from the sensor.

Re: Windshield Tint

Sunglasses at night does not seem like a bright idea to me. But I guess it depends on your vision.
