    20 is darker, so 20 in back 25 on the sides would be a good combo.

    yea i had 5% in my old regular cab sonoma and it was a HUGE improvenmt. its amazing how much it darkens the truck. but if your looking to tint the fronts as well you dont even need to go that dark on the rear.. I'd do liek 25% on the fronts..(I did 25 or 30 in my double cab up front) and 15 or darker if you want it real dark for the rear. either way you will love it cuz it will be darker and way more private than how it is now
