Window Tint for Soft Top

I've got a soft top and want tinted windows. I know that they sell kits that provide you with tinted rear windows, but none of them that I've seen come with tinted front windows. Does anybody know of a kit that includes tinted front windows, or where/how I can get it done? Thanks!

It's illegal in the US to have tints ahead of the B pillar I believe. People do it (I did on my Durango front doors), but MFGs can't sell it.

not illegal. its that most states have different % that can be used. Va for instance is no darker than 50% but if you buy 50% tint you will actually be illegal because of the factory tint on the front glass. if you notice, no front window is 100% clear.

Here in SA, TX, if I'm not mistaken, I believe that you can have about 31% on the front four windows, and on the rear you can go as dark as you want.

call any window tint shop in your state and they will know the %. mylt1 is 100% right in that each state has different laws on the shade or % if you will. if your tint shops cant help you check with these guys bekaert.com they are a supplier but should be able to help you.
