    Tinted my windows yesterday. 20% in the front and I'm thinking about putting the extra film on the back. Here's some quick pictures...

    Looks good man. How much darker is the back compared to the front?

    Thanks!

    And its actually lighter, from outside it looks darker but it looks lighter from the inside. I think they look darker because its a smaller window and light doesn't hit it as much. But after I put the 20% on it should be a lot darker then the front :D

    I like the front tinted a lot. the back is kinda wierd right now cause it looks lighter but hopefully the next layer of 20% will look nice and dark. Are you tinting them yourself?

    I'm debating on it. I haven't looked into it that much yet though. This is just gonna be my next "mod" after I finish my suspension/tires/wheels.

    Bought and installed Built Right UCA's today. Service at the truck stop was great. And the UCA's are badass!!!

    Here's some pictures when I got them. I'll post pictures installed tomorrow.

    They're really heavy duty and built very well....test fit the pieces to the ball joints before leaving the Truck Stop though...mine were 3 100ths to big and I had to sand the hell out of the pieces to get it all to fit. Are you installing them yourself?

    Its not to bad. If you can do the 5100s and AAL I'm sure you can handle upper arms. I only got them because my ball joints went bad...and toyota wanted 800 for parts to fix it. So for 500 I got built rights and everythings good ha.
