You can get a 20" roll that's probably 10' long to do both of your doors, but honestly, most any film you can buy at any local outlet is going to be garbage. Doing just the two front doors shouldn't cost you that much to go have it done professionally somewhere. Anything more than a 4" strip is illegal in Mi, so just be prepared that you can possibly get pulled over if you do the full door.

He's dead on with that comment. I tinted windows for an audio shop back in the day and I have used quality grade tint and I have used the cheap tint from WalMart and AutoZone. The cheap tint will tear really easy because it is super thin and it will fade to purple, unlike the other. It also doesn't have metal flaking like the higher quality tint so it will be hotter inside the jeep as well. Unless you have a local shop available to buy "good" tint from, just do like he said and have it done professionally. You'll be much happier in the long run.

Edit: As far as brand goes, I really like LLumar tint. If you want to do it yourself, the easiest thing I can say is to google search tint tools. I used baby shampoo mixed in a spray bottle with water. I good, sharp razor knife (I prefer Olfa). And, if you have never done it before, maybe try YouTube for instructions, and don't forget to buy extra tint for your screw-ups
