Got a ticket in the WJ today! D'oh!

We bought her Jeep with illegal window tint. This is my first window tint ticket in my life, and most every vehicle I've ever owned has had moderately illegal window tint--including my TJ. It was a trooper, and he was kind of a prick about it. You could tell he was a ticket writing machine with how fast he talked and how fast he wrote the ticket. Within a few seconds of stopping, he was already at the window with a tint meter in his hand. He tested the front windows to be 16%. Unfortunately, 50% is the darkest you can have the front windows in Virginia, and 35% in the rear.

I thought all WJ's came with privacy glass in the rear, but maybe not? The tint seems to match all the way around. I guess we'll get the front windows re-tinted to be legal and hopefully they'll drop it in court like they normally do. Kind of pissed because it's not my vehicle, per say (it's hers, and we're not married or anything, and I'm going to have to miss a day of work to make it to court out of town--OR, pay more than $90 and suck it up.

Bought it a remote start. These last couple days waking up in the single digits pushed me over the edge. Also got my 5th Rubi wheel mounted to the new spare. Wish I could put the spare in upside down in the back and use that extra space for jumper cables and stuff.

I like those and I'm not really a fan of most aftermarket headlights. Where did you get those and if you don't mind me asking, how much?

That's exactly what I did. Just attack the old jack mounting points with a hammer till they are flat (my jack was always under the rear seat anyway!) and put something thin and soft in the well to stop the face of the wheel being scratched. Mines been like that for about a year and the space is really useful.

I found a set of smoked halos and led tail lights on ebay 275 for it all, only reason I havent pulled the trigger on them is because they arent ccfl. Itll cost 350 to get the same led tail lights and smoked ccfl halos. Unless you can convert the halos to ccfl. I dunno if thats possible.

Id think you can upgrade led halo's to CCFL,
Go CCFL no doubt, the led is Way to dim in daylight.

I would just pay the ticket and keep the tint. I got a ticket here in NC for my tint being to dark and it was going to be a $295 ticket if I didn't strip it off. I took the tint off and had the ticket dropped and had it retinted the next day.
