    Hey,

    Where are you guys getting your tint done in the LA / Pasadena area, and for how much? I got quoted $171.00 for all windows. Lifetime warranty, any shade I want; Is that good or bad??

    Thanks,

    Ted

    what do you mean when you say "all windows?" I got my front two done to match my back two for $60 even. 28% (legal limit in SC). i don't have a lifetime warranty but i don't expect to need it (unless i forget and wash them with windex....) Anyway, if thats for more than two windows i'd say its a good deal. But then again in Cali that may be a good deal for just two windows i dont know.

    It's a good deal, but i'm sure you can bargain it down a bit.

    I mean all of the windows on the truck, not just the passenger and driver front. I want to darken the access cab so no one can look in and see what is back there. They are also going to put a strip on the windshield.

    Cool, glad you like it. yeah if he's doing ALL the windows i'd say you got a pretty sweet deal, especially with the warranty. I'm sure it looks badass

    I believe it's actually illegal to have any tint on the front windows in Kalifornistan.

    Scroll about halfway down and you'll find the law. This is from the official CHP website.

    Do what i did. Get dark for the access cab and visor, and then get a medium shade for the passenger and driver side windows. It looks like the dark interior is causing the dark driver/passenger windows rather than the tint. Go for it. Its badass.
