Window Tint
 
So I am going to tint my rear 5 windows on Friday (both rear doors, rear quarter and hatch). I want some feedabck from the JG world. Please list the % of tint you currently have, pic if possible, and your feedback on what you like and what you would change.

My goal is to do 5% on all of the back 5 windows and leave the fronts alone (stupic Cali laws). I know my windows are already tinted (pretty dark actually)...so has anyone had any issues with putting the tint over our dark stockers? Did anyone increase tint % becuase our come tinted stock? Any and all info is greatly appreciated!!!

If you put 5% tint over the stock windows... you might not be able to see out of them lol. The rear glass is tinted from the factory at about 18%.

I tinted my front windows at 18% to match.

B-rad, i wanted mine front 2 to be around 15-18% but since they dont offer it at the shop i got 20%. i was thinking of 5% the passenger,quarter glass and hatch as well but when backing up @ night, the hatch could be a prob. Pic of mine with 20% and with the light factor, you can still see pretty clearly from the outside in

I know Ryan (blackpepper) has around 15% over the stock 15 rears on his windows. And 50% on the front two.

That first pic lets a lot more light through that I thought it would!

Sorry in advance.

Re: Window Tint
 
thanks Frank...do you have a pic I could check out? Yeah i think I agree that 5% would be too dark @ night over the stock tint...

no prob Paul thanks for the pics...

Davy - so did you just leave the rears and hatch stock? I really want to make it so you cannot see in, so it sounds like 15-10% tint over the stock tint will be money. I do want to see out at night so I prolly won't go with 5%. Thanks for the pic Davy...are you happy with the tint? And you can see out at night ok?

Ok listen to this.

My cousin also has a WK. His Rear windows are like 5% and the front windows are 10%. It's so hard to reverse unless you have a back-up camera.

Re: Window Tint
 
fronts are 20%. rear is stock. the factory is actually smoked. even my 20% is more difficult to see out of than the stock. it's not as clear.

i jsut got my rear quarter glass install and i THINK it is 5% over stock. At day you cannot see anything from the outside in which i like. At night i looked back there and it would be hard to back up unless you use the back up cam. i would prefer it to be darker actually but 5% is a bit much IMO. if i would 5% anything it would be rear doors and rear quarters.( i just might do it actually) hatch a tad darker and leave the front alone @ 20. 15% would be great for the front if it's available. At the moment rear door and hatch are stock

Hrm, I am planning to tint the rears either 20 or 35% over the stock tint in collaboration with the backup-cam. I'm doing it this summer Davy, if you wanna meet up at speedworld.
