2012 Grand Cherokee Overland - Window Tint amount?
 
Can anyone on the forums tell me what the GC has as far as window tint?
I'm curious as the law in the state I reside in currently says the front side windows can allow 35% of light in, the rears are 20%. The front sides can be no more than 35 percent reflective.

I just don't know what the tint is on my Grand Cherokee Overland to begin with! Getting some work done tomorrow so if anyone happens to know, please chime in & thanks.

The OEM rear tint meters at 20%. I've found 18% on the front matches perfectly as the windshield makes it appear slightly lighter.

Thanks so much! I was searching through the forum threads and all I could find was this:

I'm going to look into the tinting tomorrow morning when I get the XPEL film installed.

Agree noobish question but I've never had any of my other vehicles tinted before now so thought it best to ask those who have.

I was just kidding around... I agree with you 100%, you want to do it once and have it match the first time! You'll love the look once it's done!

by law in KS/MO you can only tint the front windows 35%. am i right in thinking it will look weird to have this much disparity between the front and back windows? i know the back windows are tinted 18%.

i would really like to get this done because i think it looks awesome, especially on a BB jeep, but not if it's going to look weird.

Same 35% law in Nebraska for the front windows. I did it.

thanks for the pics. do you think it's still worth it to do 35% on the front? i guess i looks better than no tint at all . . .

Definitely!

I have 35% on my fronts. They look very nice. No tint is legal here and I didn't want to be hassled by the cops. I figured I could get away with the 35%. At night they look very dark.

I put 20% on my fronts and it's a near perfect match to the stock rears.
