    Looking to get my windows tinted this weekend and wanted to see some pics.

    Since the rears are already tinted, my tint guy said he can just match it. So if you have one that is "matched" that would be awesome!

    My Tacoma came tinted from the dealer, so I assume everything is the same as the back:

    "Tinted" in general is sweet.

    In my opinion, tint is a dual purpose mod.

    1. It looks cool.
    2. It keeps the interior cooler.

    sort of hard to see but the front matches the back
    the guy who had it before me did a shitty job himself, it's cut bad at the bottom and corners, but it'll do
    can't get wasted with my buddies in my hometown cuz the cops sit and wait for people to come out, then we're f*cked with my tint cuz it gives them a reason to pull us over:mad:

    I know I'm invading this thread, but how much does it cost to tint the fronts to match the rears (access cab)?

    Depends on where you go and the quality of service. I've seen it as low as 50 up to around 120. I had mine done for 80.

    Just the pic I was looking for. So the rears were the "stock" tint that came with the car right?

    Andrew: I spoke to my tint guy and he said $40 to match it. So it should be around that price.

    Here ya go...my tint shop matched the rear...they told me 18%, but the actual hue is a little different - you just can't tell. The rear has more of a tan type tint to it, while the front is more smoke. You really can't tell from the outside, but you can see a slight difference from the inside of the cab.

    Cost me $70 for the first truck (red) and $0 for the second (black - negotiated into the sale of the truck).
