Yeah, that T connect sure did make it easier. Of course, I thought I would be smart and go to places that sold trailers. Shame on me, I should have gone straight to a Truck store I do have photos of me putting it together. Been busy with my new puppies.

Well good to know for the future though! Better make a good how-to post when you get the time. There's a lack of info on how to do this with decent pics.

hi all. I have a question for anyone living/driving in alberta with front window tint. How dark did you go and how often do you get a ticket?

That's more a matter of luck. My other truck has no tint up front and I get hasseled all the time cause they think it is. My dodge stealth has 25% up front and I've never been pulled over for it. My last car had 5% up front and never got me hasseled. My mom had a bmw with 50% and the RC's made her take it off. I've never actually got a ticket for it. From my understanding they don't really look for it but if you drive like a punk or they take a dislike to you then you may have a tougher time with it. I haven't done my ram yet.

I run 20% on my fronts because it matches the factory tint. I got pulled over once in Medicine Hat for a series of 'small' issues (tint and no mud flaps - the truck is lowered, don't need them) but I think the cop was just looking for something big hoping that it would be enough to get me on everything. Nobody has ever bugged me about it outside of the 'hat.

It's totally a stupid law. Just a money grab and another control they try to put on you. I wont do anything more than 20% ever again though just for night time visibilty reasons, not being able to see out the mirrors gets frustrating lol

It's primarily a safety concern, I've heard of a cop in Edmonton that had to put 3x 9mm rounds at point blank into a windshield that had been tinted. The laminate basically holds everything together preventing the glass from braking properly. Saw this yesterday with my rear glass, it was still in one piece even with it being folded back into the cab.

not to mention, when a polce officer has his take down lights on, he can't see the occupants in the vehicle cause the light reflects off it like a mirror. trust me I've seen it forst hand and it made me understand why this law is in place.

I do think a max of 30% should be allowed, it essentially does allow someone to see completely through the cab of vehicle, and you can still see the drivers face, not a sillouette.
