2013 Rear window tint

Hey Guys got a question. I just recently inquired about getting my 2 front side windows tinted and also explained that I wanted the back window tinted. The guy at the tint shop said "you mean you want the back tinted darker?" I said no its not tinted at all. He was shocked and said hes done a bunch of Grand Cherokees and said hes never seen that back window not tinted from the factory especially when the back side windows are factory tinted. I have a 2013 Grand Cherokee Laredo that I purchased brand new from the dealer and was wondering if anybody else with a 2013 noticed the rear window not factory tinted? Anybody have any clue as to why it wouldnt be ? Thanks in Advance!

Re: 2013 Rear window tint

The only time I have seen a GC not tinted was on export models due to laws. I have never seen a GC in the States that were not tinted. Maybe is was a special order for someone, that they never took delivery of.

Can you post a pic? I'd be interested to see that.

Re: 2013 Rear window tint

I wish I had taken a pic before but I went ahead and had him tint the rear 15% for me to match the rest of the windows because the headlight glare was killing me and I cant stand using the manual tilt mirror on the jeep, makes everything all distorted. I just found it very odd that it would come with the side windows factory tinted (minus front 2) and not the rear.

Re: 2013 Rear window tint

I just purchased it off of the dealer lot so that could be a possibility since it wasnt my special order. I was thinking maybe the glass was damaged while on the lot and was maybe replaced? Or could the factory ever possibly run out of tinted glass and just start using non-tinted?

Re: 2013 Rear window tint

I don't believe it without a picture ;-) Your telling us that the rear flipper glass on your 2013 Grand Cherokee was crystal clear see through like your windshield? Wtf?!? I think I saw a picture of an export model with no factory tint, but I think all Grand Cherokee's have had factory tint for as long as I can remember.

If that's really the case then it's either a goof at the factory or like you said who knows they ran out lol. There has been posts on this forum of errors on Jeeps. I have seen pitures of wrong color center consoles installed, and I think one person had a summit with the normal wood colored steering wheel even though the rest was the dark summit wood.

Re: 2013 Rear window tint

If they build exports on the same line as the domestics, it could be a windshield fell of the conveyor and the installer just grabbed the next one in line without looking.

Re: 2013 Rear window tint

Haha I wish I was lying would have saved me $65 on the rear tint, the most logical answer seems to be that it's some sort of factory goof. Guess I got one of the lucky ones in the bunch lol

Re: 2013 Rear window tint

maybe it was a special order that didn't sell...I've seen vehicles at airports and gov. centers with odd things like this. Did you ask? I find it very strange that the dealer wouldn't know the history.

Re: 2013 Rear window tint

I actually saw a WK2 on the hiway about a month or 2 ago that had no tint on back window. Sides were tinted but not very back. I was kind of like WTF and did a double take but yep, no tint one rear hatch glass. I dont think Ive seen ANY Grand without rear tint....in 20 yrs of them. At least not in America.
