Tinted Windows
I am trying to decide what % tint I want to put on my 2012 Dodge regular cab. It has a factory slider with tint on it but doesn't seem very dark. Anyone have pics of a regular cab with 20-35% on the back and sides. Would like to get some what of an idea how it would look.

I used 15% on all my windows of my truck. I love it. Dark enough for privacy but not to dark for driving in the night. I use to have 5% and hated it cause I would have to roll down my windows everytime I was backing up in the dark. 15% I dont have that issue. I have a quad cab but take a look at some pics I have see if you like it.

Before you decide to go ahead & put which ever tint % to use

You should know just which TYPE of tint to use, not the Brand, but the type
I remember reading about the new Rams use a different kind of window glass, then was used in the past
The old film & the new type film hold in the heat differently
call a tint shop & ask about it
Or someone that had an issue may answer up

I have 20% on the sides with factory on the rear and it is darker than with just the factory rear. When just the rear was covered it didn't look like it had hardly any tint.
One thing to remember though is what does your state allow as far as percentages for tint. In MN it is 50% unless you have a Dr.'s Script, let me just say that there are tint violations every week in the local paper for being to dark.
Sorry no pics since I tinted it, however my albumn has a pic or two with just the rear and a pic of the Super Bee with a 35% on the side windows.

Thanks for the advise guys. I dropped it off friday and ended up doing 25% all the way around with a 3m premium tint.

Attached a few pics, let me know opinions.
