    Generally that means there is something wrong with your truck, if the fuzz picks up on it every 4-5 months and issues you a ticket...:rolleyes:

    I have 28% and it matches about perfect. Also, I wanted to stay legal since lowest is 27% VLT here in SC.

    No thank you, I'd like to see out at night :p

    I just want to match my back windows.

    The front windows make my truck look bad in my opinion...

    Just chiming in.

    Tinted my windows a couple of weeks ago. 2013 DC. Rear windows metered at 27%. Tinted the front windows with 35% to get a perfect meter match of 27%.
