You don't need to remove the window to do it. So, just measure your window.

If you're doing the tinting yourself, ebay has laser pre-cut tint for most vehicles including the WJ. I tinted my front windows to match the factory stuff (%20) with laser cut tint ( I think the seller I used was tint-pro (click)). I've used the same seller to tint my last 3 cars. It's great quality and doesn't turn purple like the stuff you get at wal-mart does. And no, you don't have to take off your windows, but removing the door panels to tint the front and rear doors makes things easier.

Taken about 10 months after installation. I helped a buddy tint his truck with Wal-Mart tint and 6 months later it is starting to turn purple already!

Yeah, no need to remove the windows. Whatever you do though, make sure you get a good quality window film, something like SunTek CXP.

I will give all you guys props who do the tinting yourself. I tried to do it on my own and got so mad that I gave up. I couldn't get the tint to lay flat under the weather stripping on the bottoms of the windows and just ended up paying someone to do it.

That weather stripping pops right out and makes it so much easier. I managed to do my side windows but failed twice on the tailgate.

For curved windows like the tailgate, you will need to use a heat gun.

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!

There is a lot of how to DIY on Youtube made by pro's that do it for a living. Just do a search. A few cheap tools to get under weatherstripping and your set. Taking the windows out just makes it complicated. I did the fronts last year.

I learned for the dub jays that removing the weather strip helps a lot. I guess nothing is better then trail and error

As I roll down the trail,I hope my traction will not fail.But if I spin & begin to slide,please dear lord protect my ride
