Soft Top Window Tint Question

I have a 2007 2-door with a soft top and wanted to know what I might expect to pay to get the whole thing tinted. Also, can pretty much any tint company tint the soft top? Is there anything I should be careful about?

Thanks!

...if anyone has any pics of a 2-door Jeep Green with tint I would love to see them.

Instead of tinting the soft top windows, you replace them with dark ones.

I third this notion. Any attempt to apply aftermarket tint to soft top windows is going to result in major suckage.

I would also go new with tint,i do not remember what they cost, but i will say it was much less than what I thought. You will also have a second set that you could use during topless season and can beat on them and not care, and when you leave the top up most of the time u can use the nice non-beaten pair of tinted.

After looking on ebay I noticed the precut window tints and also the 3 actual windows themselves. The precut windows are only $30 while the actual tinted windows are $275. Has anyone tried these precut windows? Are they easy to put on or are they a POS?

Thanks.
