07 WK here from Long Island

Hey everyone, I have made a few posts here but never introduced myself. Name's Joe, and I recently purchased a 2007 Jeep Laredo (used, but new to me) Certified. I used to drive a 2001 Chevy Prizm (I know I know), but got transferred at work further away (I work a job I can't call in for snow or any other weather/condition) and I needed that 4x4 reliability.

Well, my Jeep is pretty stock I think. I recently added the shorty billet antenna thanks to Alex on here ordering it for me (friend of mine since we were 5), and currently use my Droid X and car mount for Navi/Movies/Slingbox/Music. I want to add a few things, and any tips would be appreciated.

First I plan to get tints. 5% seems to be the darkest I can get around here, so thats the number. Now, have any of you tinted your windshield? If so, what percent did you use? 5% seems too dark for the front, but I would like something.

Next, the entertainment. I want a navigation (In dash, and not one that folds out, I want it out all the time. Fold out ones seem cheaply made to me). This navigation needs to play dvd movies, and have room for a rear view camera. I also want room for one or two more devices to be plugged in (RCA Inputs, such as hooking my droid x up to watch slingbox on screen, or video games).

Next, I noticed up above the driving lights, right where it meets the window, theres a small hole. Is in the 05 model as well. I want something there of use, just not sure what. Just in beginning stages.

And, of course, remote start.


Any recommendations for brands/places/etc. are appreciated. Thanks for all the advice I've gotten so far from you all!

Re: 07 WK here from Long Island

welcome from NYC!

5% tint on windshield is a bit much. It's going to be a guessing game at night lol. Joe (sn Robert Palmer) had his done 50% and it looks great. There a thread somewhere on it, check it out for visuals. Hopefully someone will chime in for the entertainment/navi cause im planning the same thing!
