My Laredo is in the 20% range. I decided to get the front tinted 20% and you can't really tell a difference from the outside. From the inside you can tell, but it's probably because of the different film and age.

I was talking to a tint guy and he said that cops can pull you over for your tint on the rear and sides, because it is less than legal, so if you haven't gotten pulled over for that, you're less likely to get pulled over for your fronts. That's not to say that you won't get pulled over. I've been pulled over with my windows at 10% and the cop never said anything. It just depends on the time of the month. If they need money, they may tack on the extra offense. Are you planning on doing your fronts? you never said.

Your tint guy is full of it. If it was illegal to have the sides & back tinted at 18% then Jeep would not have offered that as an option. In most places, tinting the front ANY beyond factory is illegal.

They're 18%. A 15 or 20% dyed film will match very well.

Factory tint is not illegal.

I'm not saying factory tint is illegal. I'm saying the % factory tint is illegal where I live. A cop could pull me over. All I'd say is that it's factory. I got pulled over once at night because my license plate light was out. He looked in my back windows and said "wow. Those are some dark windows!" that's the most a cop has said about tint to me

Factory tint isn't illegal and also since they are on the back windows, not the front driver and passenger windows. The factory tint on the back is 18% but I did 15% on the front two windows which looks very good and I love it. Just remember to roll your windows down as fast as you can if you do get 15% if you see a cop cause it is illegal in most states

Legal limit here is 25% but the back can be darker than the front. I'm not for sure what the legal limit is on the back because all my cars before the ZJ were 2 door sports cars. I had 15% on most of my cars before but as long as I rolled my windows down when I got pulled over I had no problems with the cops.
