Re-Do Exhaust or Tint? Opinions Wanted

So I had my exhaust redone about a year ago and had everything tucked and to my liking and then added a FM Super 10 muffler in the mix, while it sounds good at idle...its gotten kind of annoying. So I was thinking of just getting a Magnaflow muffler and replacing the FM super 10. But I was also thinking of getting my windows tinted...My front 2 windows are not tinted at all and the rest of my windows are tinted but is faded and can basically see everything in the jeep as of now. So with my tax return I want to do one of the 2. Would you guys choose to tint all the windows which would cost about $200 or redo the exhaust which would be $80 for the muffler and about $50-60 to have it welded up.

Go.

I would do Window tint. I live in New York and the summers arnt to hot but my center console still feels like it's gonna start on fire in the summer. Window tints are on my list of stuff to do.

It doesn't get terribly hot in NC during the summer, just the humidity is bad. Part of me wants to do the window tint, but having a magnaflow would be nice too! I can do one now and one later, but I know that the one I don't do now, will probably never get done.

I would do tint first, considering you don't really need a muffler since you just replaced it...
