    ^so much swag in that tint bro. #yolo
    Seems kinda pointless to me, the top strip reduces glare, but what would the bottom do but prevent vision?

    Don't do eet, mang. They'll all laugh at you.

    In all seriousness, no, nobody here has done it. Not a good/safe idea.

    Honestly, im curious what the benefits are...im not poking fun at all.......im really curious if there's a good purpose that we are missing.

    Feel free to pm me if u don't wanna deal with the shit storm in the thread.

    Im not gunna do it, but im curious the thought process behind it :confused:

    Sorry I was the first 1 to say "bottom?" But I just wanted to make sure it wasn't a typo, I wasn't trying to start shit.

    you will gain no popularity by retaliating. we are honest and genuine when we ask WHY? what is the point? tint on a windshield is unsafe unless at the top where it blocks glare and extraneous light that tries to distract you from driving but a bottom strip is ridiculously unnecessary and serves no purpose other than to look cool.

    and he can post wherever he likes a windshield and tinting are universal items covered by both first and second gen tacomas and only differ in shapes, not technology
