TJ Tinted Upper Doors
 
I'm looking to get a Bestop replace-a-top with 35% tint. I love how it looks, but I think that the transparent upper doors look just plain dumb. I'm looking for a way to get my uppers tinted or a place to buy tinted uppers. I've seen a few pics here on JF with the upper tint. Any ideas? Thanks :D

Thank you very much. And just so you know, it was your Jeep that sold me the idea of a lift. Your's looks quite amazing, if I do say so myself.

Upon searching (and giving Fortec a call), the top "does not exist." Ebay turned up nothing as well. So Boogieman, consider yourself lucky.

I called them as well and they said that only the backs come tinted. :(

It's a hit or miss thing.If you would patent those, you would be rich.I have no idea why any Jeep window company didn't do this.Everyone I know with half doors wants tinted windows.There's a HUGE market for them.Patent them,sell them and cut me a 10% profit.:cheers2:

P.S. In all my travels through VA and other states,I have only seen three other jeeps with them in the past 10 years.I think you might be a millionaire if you patent the idea.:2thumbsup:

If anyone knows a way to tint the ones I already have (or ones I will be getting) in an economic way, let me know please :D

Search tint and several people used that glass window tint film.It creases and looks like $H!T IMO if you EVER unzip them.:nono:

Any pics?

tinted side windows are illegal in michigan. could be different where you are though.

williamellison 05-03-2011 05:37 PM

I'm not too concerned with the legality of it (that sounds terrible, but the law enforcement is pretty lax about it)
