I have 5% on my back windows over the factory tint and 20% on my two fronts and i like it you can't see that good backing up at night that is the only thing i don't like about it.

20% should get you close to the rear windows, I have 35% and its only a few shades lighter, but thats also with the windshield letting through a lot of light.

20 on the fronts will match your rear. If it were me I'd go 5% all the way around. Thats what I have on mine. I got a tint ticket last weekend but the tint will stay either way I am not riding without it.

I have 20% on the front, 5% around the back windows and the back glass, and a 5% "sun visor" across the front windshield. 3M is the best way to go for tint IMO .... :ford:

HA-HA! :pointlaugh:

I would just go with 20%. It matches the factory well IMO.

My tint read 4% on the sheriff's meter with all the windows down in my truck on a sunny day. 3m is good tint but if you can find a place that uses Suntek its even better!

I had my fronts tinted to match the back and side factory tint by a local company. I just have to strip the 2 drivers and passenger side ones whenever I get it inspected here in Delaware. It is a pain in the butt but worth it, hot leather seats in shorts is no fun.

I now have 20% all around with that over my factory tint and I want to go darker in the back but the front at 20% is ok. Its not dark enough but in Texas 25% is the legal limit in the front so I don't want to push it.

In the pics the F250 Harley had 20% in the rear and 35% up front. The lifted F350 had 35% all the way around

I've got 5% all the way around, with the windshield not being tinted, you can still see in the front windows and through the rear if the sun is right as the following pics will show. Honestly, the front diver/passenger, are a different shade of black than the rear factory tint so I'll be getting them redone to be 20% with a layer of 5% behind that to match. I'm also debating on whether to go 50% again with the windshield or 30%. Either way, once that is tinted, you cannot see in the cab at all.

I just got 15% all the way around. I didn't want to go 5% because my eyes aren't the best. 15 still has plenty of visibility at night and looks awesome IMO.

Mine is just the same and its hard to see and back up at nite w/o rolling my windows down.. but worth it IMO.. looking into doing my windshield at 50%..
