Well...I'm starting to research window tinting. In Virginia, the limit on the front door windows is 50% and there is no limit on the back. I talked with a guy about Diamond tint. Any comments or experience with this stuff? Suggestions or pictures? Should I consider that silver/mirrored stuff?

yes, please dont get the mirror crap, if i ever saw a ram with that on it, i don't know what i would do. I have 15 on my side windows, and 5 on the rear, that sucks you can only have 50 to be legal. get black tint. and since yours is silver like mine, it kind of gives it the illusion that the windows are actually darker than they are, so it still looks cool if its not that dark.

Guys,

I am going to get window tint to on my Hemi, but am not sure what to get. I want the darkest black possible becasue my truck is black. Does anyone know what % the back windows come with from the factory, becasue they do have alittle tint on them, but my front ones don't, and it looks funny.

What is the legal amount in Texas? My friend who is manager of the large lexus dealership in Houston is going to do them for free, and he said he will put the darkest legal tint there is on them. I am hoping it is darker than what I see on the back windows right now?

Thank you,
Kyle

20% on the front windows... as dark as you want on the rears and I believe it comes stock with 35... but I might be wrong.

i found a really cool window tint if anyone is intrested but its $1300 installed on a quad cab. thats all 6 windows though. but the nice part you cannot break in w/ a baseball bat. you can even get some that is bullet proof. if intresed go to www.shattergard.com and check it out. they use it on a show on the discovery channel called "it takes a theif" its cool stuff.

OK so I want both the front and back to match, and want it to be the darkest legally, So that is %20 all the way around? I am guessing the lower the number of percent, the more black it becomes?

If the back has a %35 percent on it, does that mean they have to add 15% percent to the back, and the make the front 20% to have 20% all the way around?

What about the front windshield and back one?

What is a limo tint?

Thank you,
Kyle

limo tint = 5%

i dont know what they do with existing tint.. but you should get 5% on everything you can do.. then say 15 or 20 on the front windows.. they wont be exactly the same.. but it wont be very noticeable.. or do 5% in the back.. and 20 on the sides..
