Window tint front Windows on new Cherokee?

I just bought a 2015 Jeep Cherokee and noticed that the front windows are not tinted like the back windows. So my question is who has got their front windows tinted to match the back? How much did it cost?



Otherwise love my new Cherokee!

I recently had the fronts done on my 2014 in 30% and they look great.
that came to the house and did it.

Re: Window tint front Windows on new Cherokee?

i'm not having any luck finding anything that matches both inside and out. First, I had Solar Gard HP22, which was too metallic from the outside, and now i've got 3M FX-ST that is WAY too green from the inside, and obviously much darker.

Anyone have any pictures from the inside looking out of tint that matches well? From what i'm reading since the front glass is 70% from the factory, adding a 30% VLT film would make a perfect match of 21% (which is what the rear windows are labeled as), but might appear lighter from the outside due to the light of the windshield. I'm ok with that, but looking for something that will match color wise also.

I am sorry I don't have a better picture of the tint on my windows, but I got the front 2 done here in Virginia at 20%. 3M color guard I think it was called. I also got a 5% strip on the front windshield.

Re: Window tint front Windows on new Cherokee?

Bought mine almost a month ago. Got the dealer to throw the front window and strip at the top of the front window at no cost to me.

Re: Window tint front Windows on new Cherokee?

30% Global QDP (Express Classic Charcoal is the same stuff) matches almost perfectly. Color wise it's just a hair off, darkness is perfect from inside and out. 30% film on 70% glass makes a perfect 21% match to the rears.

Now...I've got it installed, but once again, not happy with the quality. Installer used a plotter to cut, and left a gap at the back edge. GRRRR!!! Maybe it's time for me to learn to tint myself
