Question V-Kool Films.. are they OK to use?

Hey Guys,

I've just received my RAM 1500 Laramie Truck a week a go, and I'm really happy with it until now..

I'm thinking of tinting the front windows to match the back for security reasons.

I was thinking of going with the V-Kool Films, but I am not sure if this is OK to use, especially that it was mentioned earlier about the heat trap, and the double pane glass with the mylar in the middle.

I thought of going with those as they reflect something like 99% of IR and 99% of UV rays including sun heat.

Are they considered OK to use with the RAM windows??

Did any one try these V-Kool's on their truck??


In addition to what was mentioned earlier, they have an added bonus which is that they make the windows shatter proof which is great for more security...


Thanks for all of the support i've seen in this forum here.

Sincerely,
Sherif

I have 2011 Laramie Crew Cab and it is NOT laminated, is it on all Laramies or just the megacabs?

It would be very cool to have the new/old safety glass have like the transition lenes do in glasses. Turn dark in sunlight and lighten up in overcast and darker settings.

Except that particular type of glass is extremely expensive, not to mention the transition is actually a polymer laminate and would function the same as tint. Though, if you got the electrostatic charged glass like some of the high-end manufacturers use that creates a static charge in the glass and causes the internal structure to align and pass light through, but when there's no charge it's completely limo black.
