    I had limo on my last Tundra, and will not go back to that dark. It was a PITA at times to see.

    In my tacoma I went with 20% all the way around. Since the back windows had a slight factory tint, the rear ended up a lot darker. For the wife's jeep we went 20% in the front and whatever equivalent in the rear to match the front. Think it ended up with ~25% in the back. Makes it look consistent in all windows.

    I think my tundra now has ~25% as it isn't as dark as the jeep or tacoma. I want a little darker.

    Csuviper, I agree I've had 20% on my gt mustang, tacoma, Tundra, and my fiancé had her Rav4 tinted yesterday as well and they look amazing!!

    Sean266, limo is a little dark especially at night, 20% can be a pain at times, thank God for back up cams!

    It was a real pain...I would have to roll down the windows at night to back in (even with the cam plus reverse LEDs) ...even some turns I would have to roll it down to see around the corner

    Working on them now...
    I went with 20% also to match the back. I didn't want to go too dark as it makes it hard to see at night. Been there done that before.

    I'm used to the Limo tint as my previous vehicles a 83 Hilux, 85 4runner and 01 4runner all had 5% tint. Its great during the day and in the summer..... but at night or in the winter i have to crack the window to look both ways. I love the look and privacy of the limo tint.

    I got my truck done about a month and a half ago.. Went with 13% on the fronts and 5% over factory in the rear.. I'm used to the tine as my last truck had 5% on the rears and i cant remember what the fronts where... And I'm also thinking about getting my windshield done because i don"t like to be seen while I'm driving

    20% ceramic tinted windows, charcoal filter delete, weather tech floor mats, rear seat fold down mod, Tyger soft tonneau cover, Linex with uv protection, TRD swaybar, TRD center caps, TRD Pro grille insert, Real truck tailgate seal, Pop-n-lock tailgate actuator. Lots of love.
    I put 20% driver side passenger window and 20% on top of the factory tint in the back. Which makes it limo in the back. I love it.
