    Alright, the first question: tint. I was originally planning on taking my access cab to the local tint shop for $130, 5% all around. Then, I was just strolling TW and someone posted this link for DIY tint. Has anybody tried that or any similar products, and how easy is it to avoid air bubbles, etc. Would I be better off getting it professionally done or not?

    Also, anyone gotten 15 or 20% in the back over the factory tint and then 5% in the front? does it look even? How bout 5% all the way around?

    Now, finally, the second and final question: Wet Okoles. Next paycheck, Imma go with all black. I was looking thru the WO site, and was going to set everything up so when I have necessary funds, I will just have to press "order." But, of course, I had to run into a speed bump. What are the back seats in the '09 access cab called, or do they even have an option for em. The "jump seats and fold n tumble" look like them, but have no headrests. Are these them or what?

    Thanks in advance. Oh and how much do you like your WO's!?

    DIY tint can work out great- or HORRIBLE. I'd pay for it to be done by someone who will do it right.

    I love my WO covers- They have held up great and look sharp

    I tinted all the windows on my truck with that precut ebay kit. Went 20 on the back and 35 up from, it looks awsome. It was the first truck I have ever tinted and I didnt get any bubbles or dirt. Your tint job is only as good as your prep. So take your time and It will come out great. And I had my kit shipped to Alberta and with an install kit I tinted all my windows for $60. JMO

    I was done in 2 hours. did some research on youtube and with the disc that came with the install kit for about an hour. So 3 hours total to tint. Didn't roll the windows down for 2 days and that was it. Very easy. Check out this video. its how I learned
