    35% up front, 20% in the back window tint, 15" Mickey Thompson bullet hole wheels, with 31x10.5 Firestone Destination A/T tires. Glass Pack, High Flow Cat, S&B CAI, Custom Light Bar with 4 fog lights. 2 10" Rockford Fosgate P2 subs with 1000 watt Rockford Fosgate Amp, CB.
    Hmmm....well I will be perfectly honest with you. I've never seen 50% tint. And if you do find someone to do it that has 50% then ok, but this is the part I will be honest with you about. You obviously don't want to go too dark, but 50% in my opinion is sort of a waste of money. 35% is what you should go. Gives you a little more privacy, safety (for whatever you have in your truck when parked and locked), and its not as dark as you would think. Thats all my opinion though. I just think that you won't be satisfied with the 50% and will be wanting darker. That's how I was with mine. I still want to go 20% on my truck. Just my .02

    Hopefully you'll find your oil leak.

    Just for example. Here's my truck...with 35% on the front and 20% on the back. And i know its hard to tell but my windows aren't quite that dark, the way the picture was taken it looks darker than it really is.

    Hmm... 35% looks pretty good. I'm waiting on Chris to get his done and see how they come out cause I believe he is going with 50%. But I'm definitely going to think about it now

    Just food for thought, I know how it is to tint and wish you went darker. Im happy with my 35 but on my car I went 20 and loved it, so wish I would have went with 20 on my truck. Just something to think about.

    Did some more work recently because of school vacation being this past week. Got a TRD leather wrapped shifter knob, finished my e-brake stuff (finally:rolleyes:), hit a tree while off roading, new tail light lense, and pushed most of the dent out.

    I'll have some work to do this weekend. Appears that my seals decided to all go at once.. Just wish it happened a few weeks later when I could deal with it over vacation in April. I'm going to be doing my front camshaft seals (both sides), crankshaft seal, timing belt, water pump, thermostat, distributor O-ring, P/S belt, alternator belt, and an oil change. Been leaking badly since Sunday, got out of work with a big puddle under the truck. Took a picture yesterday after school of the puddle it left. Hoping this solves my problem

    Yes it does! I'm trying to only have to take up my friday night and only saturday morning since it messed with my weekend plans enough already. At least it will be out of the way and I'll hopefully not have a leak after (that means I can park in the driveway at my girl friend's :eek:)

    Well the thing that was the big problem was the passenger side camshaft seal was completely out of its spot and the driver's side was leaking a little. The distributor had a small oil leak also. Hoping this solves my problems but I might have to reseal the oil pan. Replaced the camshaft seals, crankshaft seal, water pump, thermostat, timing belt, alternator belt, power steering belt, coolant, harmonic balancer (was broken when we took it off), reset the timing (distributor was off by about 4 teeth), and a new distributor o-ring.

    My mess under the timing belt cover

    Hard to tell but the seal is out

    Water pump, thermostat, and all timing stuff out

    New water pump
