More mods to come, thinking a 6 inch lift and arb bumper etc etc.
    just got my tint on the front windows to match the backs from icon tint in calgary love it and haven't had a problem yet and its day three.... icon has good prices and hes really good. i'd recommend anyone doing them and just roll them down when you get pulled over if you don't drive like an idiot and be nice to the cop they dont really bother you.

    Just because I was curious, I looked it up and figured I'd share:

    Canadian Automotive Tint Laws

    The laws regarding window film vary from province to
    province. The following are a summation of the laws in each province:
    British Columbia – No film is permitted on the driver’s compartment, right and left. Any film may be installed on the side windows behind the driver. Any film may be applied to
    the rear window, provided the vehicle has 2 exterior rear
    view mirrors.
    Alberta – Same as British Columbia.
    Saskatchewan – Same as British Columbia.
    Manitoba - For driver’s compartment, right and left, the minimum visible light transmittance, net, is 50%. The
    maximum visible light transmittance, net, is 35%. For
    windows behind the driver’s compartment, the minimum
    Visible Light Transmittance, net, is 35%. Where film is
    installed behind the driver’s compartment, 2 external rear
    view mirrors are required. The net figures that are allowed
    are enforced at plus or minus 5%.
    Ontario – For the driver’s compartment, right and left,
    no film can be installed that would substantially obscure visibility from the exterior. Behind the driver’s compartment, any film can be installed.
    Quebec – For the driver’s compartment, right and left, the minimum Visible Light Transmittance is 70% on automotive
    net basis. Any film may be installed behind the driver’s compartment, provided the vehicle is outfitted with 2
    exterior rear view mirrors.
    New Brunswick – Same as Ontario.
    Prince Edward Island – Same as British Columbia.
    Nova Scotia – No film is permitted on any glazing surface.
    Newfoundland – Same as Ontario.

    put it this way all my friends have tint and the cops in calgary and area don't care to much when they can still see you its when you go to limo tint on a white truck ... thats just asking to be pulled over for it

    I have a black truck with matched tint to the back medium i think and i don't have a problem.
