I have limo tint all the way around but went with the legal on the front windows, now however wish I would have gotten limo or the next shade lighter on the front windows even though it wouldn't have been legal. would make the truck look alot nicer. in my opinion. will prob go back eventually.

Think I'm redoing the Ram to match the 20% of my other rides. The dealer did it and they could only go with 35% and I was on a road trip through five states and short of time.

Different stores did the SRT and Titan so it must be the brand they used on the truck as it's a lot darker than the SRT.

I have been stopped in it and this lame thing has manual windows so I couldn't roll them down to hide them...plus it was November so I'm sure cops know that trick.

So now I have to undo the belt and lean over and roll down the window to talk to him as he comes to the passenger side and says he stopped me for doing 83 in a 70 which is slow on I-95 around Richmond.

He then proceeds to reach through the window to unlock the door, opens the door and starts rolling up the window. Then he pulls this device out much like this one below and says the tint is illegal.

Moral of the story....he let me slide on the speeding ticket but a $115 fine for equipment failure sucked big time. Sometimes I wish I lived in AZ, SC or FL as they still have the 27-30% rules like most states but they don't seem to care as every car has practically midnight black windows.

I would consider someone else to do my tint for your Ram in this case if this is what the shop is telling you. What do they mean they won't warranty the tint if they go darker than legally allowed? I understand the need for places who do the tint to tell you the limits allowed by law, but not covering their work because of that decision seems like a cop out to me by the shop. What does the darker tint have anything to do with the quality of the material or them standing behind their work? I understand they should inform you so you can make your own decision but not covering it under warranty because of that decision sounds like a shop I wouldn't want to do business with.

It would be a cold day in hell that a cop reaches into my vehicle UNLOCKS IT and then tells me I have to pay a ticket. Then again, I usually do things the hard way when it comes to Team Bacon.

In the end you have do do what you are comfortable with. It's tough though looking around here and seeing some trucks with the matching tint. You know you shouldn't do it, but want to anyway.
That looks great, i got the same color truck, unfortunately ANY tint on the front windows is illegal here. Hey did you do something to your headlights? Missing some orange..

Well I have 20% on my fronts to match the back and love it. It's been over a year now with no tickets however I have heard on this forum that some places in Ontario members are getting ticketed. IMHO it's worth the risk, just hope my luck keeps up as I have trips to Brookville and Tobermory coming up this summer.

Um if you put illegal tint on the front windows come inspection time they will Fail it. They do check it and even require you to pay more to do so.. Or at least here in NC they do.

legal avoids drama. I can also tell you I will never put any tint over the back factory tinted glass again....couldn't see a damn thing backing up.

I've know a lot of cops, and generally they wont ticket you for this unless you are giving them attitude. I always roll down my windows and turn on the cab light(night) when I get pulled over. Between that and being polite...it has worked many, many times.
Cops don't like walking up on blacked out vehicles, especially at night. These folks are just doing their job...a job that I wouldn't necessarily want to do, so why give them sh*t when they pull you over. And yes, I've experienced the bad cops too, but they are few and far between from my experience.
Talking slower, 'country' if you will, also seems to lighten the encounter for me.

Good eye. No orange reflectors anymore. I haven't had a chance to post pics of my latest mod, but the reflectors were taken out when I got a set of retro projector HIDs. I won't jack this thread, but will post more pics soon.
