Took my truck in for window tinting. Had them put on 35% on the fronts and I'm liking the way it looks.

Next step is de-badging the doors and tailgate. After that, thinking about stripping off the B-pillar blackout.

You have a crew cab with the full 6'-4" box!! Cool! Haven't seen one yet. I wish they had them out when I bought my truck. Definitely would have liked to have that option.

Tint also looks great. Again, wish I could get away with that up here in Canada.

As far as de-badging goes, I'd leave the tailgate personally. I think they look a little funny with no badges on them at all. The doors will look good though. Taking the B-pillar tape off with also look good.

Thanks. I like the 6'4 and I can definitely use the space but it's going to make getting back into the woods a bit difficult if I'm trying to keep the paint intact. Maybe it's time to buy an ATV.

Already started on the tailgate. The Ram is staying but the rest is going. Eventually I'll plasti-dip the Ram as I think the black/orange combo is pretty sweet. I'm already looking for some black rims so I can get rid of the factory ones.

As for the tint, I didn't see the local reg's until after it was installed (I'm a little too dark). Shame on me, I guess. I'll see how long I can keep it before a LEO tells me to strip it off.

I agree. I really like the looks of the longer box with the CC.

Love the look of the new window tint! I plan on doing mine ASAP, when my truck is delivered. 35% is the max for front windows here in Nebraska. If I may ask, how much did it cost?

I went thru the local Ziebart shop and it cost me $40/door.

I couldn't agree more with taking the tape off. The paint under that vinyl will make those tinted windows standout even more.
