    So im trying to decide what percent tint to get and I was wondering what seems to be popular out there as far as tint goes. Also how much you paid for it so then I dont get over charged. And if you have any pics of you truck with the tint on it then that would be great and very helpful if you could post them. Thank you very much.

    Might help if the thread was in the proper section.

    50%, front two windows. $50 installed with lifetime warranty.

    I only wanted a slight tint to help with the sun and not draw attention from the police.
