    ALL PRO WINDOW TINT just did mine!

    It is a small business and the guy does awesome work. He did my entire double cab for $200. He uses Suntek tint products which are one of the best and can come to you if you have an open garage to use. Check him out.

    Careful about darker than legal!!! East Valley cops are crackin down on window tint and just about anything else they can. I have had a few cops pull me over not but a block from my house and site my window tint or some other effing obscure thing and then ask me about my truck. NOT COOL

    Did you get a ticket or a fix-it ticket? The guy that did mine told me about the different shades and I think he asked me to sign a waiver in case I wanted limo tint. I just went w/ the legal limit

    Anybody got any suggestions for Temple Tx or close by. I'm looking to do Windcos at the legal limit for Ga. Ceramic tint a good choice? I do want lifetime guarantee and the last guy I talked to said Huber Optic was not that good. Said it was thick and hard to work with. I'm down here at Ft. Hood but could get some time off to drive within 4-6 hours to get it done. Will be up in Tulsa Okla weekend of 25-27 June. The best prices I've found is $399 for Huber optic and $349 for Windcos....after reading what you guys paid for it in AZ I'm wondering if I shouldn't bring some vaseline with me to the tint shop.....Can anyone help?

    Also, what % are you guys running on your trucks? I am asking since the rears are already tinted from the factory. I don't want it to look goofy. I had a 4Runner that the front windows were darker than the rears.

    It was $140 and I got 15% all around which made the backs 5% because of the factory tint.

    I used to work at a BMW dealership so I had the guy that works there do my truck. He does excellent work. He originally did 1% on the back windows (DC so back doors and back window), 4% on the front windows, and 43% on the windsheild. CHIP busted me for the front window and AZ DPS gave me a ticket for the front doors. I just had him re-do the front to the legal limit of 35%.

    Most of the streets have enough light to see good. It was only a problem when driving in neighborhoods at night...sometimes I had to roll down my windows to back up.

    The major benefit was how nice it was to be able to get into my truck after sitting outside for hours in the summer and not feel like I was in an oven.
