    I just had mine done at Ziebart.. 22% Black and love it. Takes a little getting used to at night. Gives the Truck a nice stealth look if it's black or Dark Slate Grey...

    Another vote for Llumar here. Quality stuff right there. I've always had my vehicles professionally done by shops that use Llumar. I have 15% on the Taco. It's the darkest I've ever had but I love it. A little hard seeing out the sides at night in dark lit areas though.

    LLumar. That's what I had on my cobra, loved it. Next week when the Tacoma gets tinted, I'll be going with LLumar again, 5% all the way around with 30% on the front windshield.

    The well-known shop I went to uses Global. They matched the rears almost perfectly and it's warrantied for life from cracking, bubbling, peeling, changing color, etc. The install was perfect and they look fantastic. Couldnt be happier. $75 for the front two roll-downs, and I think it was money well spent.

    I got huper optik as well. Super hq film and very happy with the results. Fwiw idd stay the hell away from wallmart tint. I've seen many cars loose windows due to the films inabbility to reflect sun light and just assorb it supper heating the glass and shattering it. I've also had llumar turn purpple right out the box from the manufacture. Solar guard and 3m are Aldo high quality window films.

    Llumar or Formula One. I have Formula One Pinnacle. Its ceramic based which will never scratch, peel, fade, or bubble. It's pricey though.

    Lumar should have been replaced immediately if it turned purple.. lifetime warranty.

    I'm just saying, who wants to go thru the hassle of getting it replaces on such a unstable product. There's much higher quality out there than llumar
