Tinted taillights

Just wondering if anyone had tinted taillights done on their ZJ or WJ. Was thinking of doing this on my WJ. Pics would be even better!

iv done it.
at first i had them tinted dark black. so black that it matched my paint basically.
my friends with the red and blue lights didnt like them and my mom told me to get the tint off immediately.
i took it off for awhile then retinted them, but not nearly as dark.
ill get some pics up of then and now when i get home

Yeah, I'm definitely not going pitch black dark. But I'd like some tint to it. What color is your WJ?

I think it is pointless to tint them because that is what people see so they don't rearend you.

you can use testers model paint. they make a color for tinting windows on models that works great. or you can color them all red with no orange or clear. iahve done both on different vehicles. let me find some pics for you to show the correct paint.
