tinting advice

I drive an 09 cherokee and im wondering what tint would match the factory. Also, I haven't tinted a vehicle since early 90's and wondering what type I should pick and if I need to get all the windows done?

any pics of an 09 with windshield strip tint?

thanks in advance!

Re: tinting advice

the tint from factory should be around 18%. I have 20% on my front 2 but ill rather get 15% if they offer it. As for DIY, I heard its a PITA so ill just recommend it giving to a tinting shop.

Just got tint on the front 2 side windows (20%) and the strip done on my 08. I'll try and post pictures soon. The 20% matched the factory perfectly
