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

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.

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.

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.

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

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