    I just got it!
    Yo. Could you guys who have tint please show me a picture of before and after? I wanna see if I think it's that much of an aesthetic upgrade.

    Thanks!

    Tint is not only an aesthetic upgrade, but for purpose as well. It blocks out heat.

    Aesthetically it does help ALOT esp. if your trucks windows didn't come tinted. it also really helps, like everyone else said, with the heat. Summers can get a bit hot down here so the tint really helps cooling down the inside esp. if the truck was out in the sun. This was the second thing done to my truck after an aftermarket deck lol.

    Thanks everyone. You've convinced me. I'm not doing a single mod in september until tint is done. That's my promise to myself.
