Before I had lost my TJ, I had searched for a replacement top with tinted half door windows, but I was never sucessful. In fact I found a few brands that appeared to be tinted in the ads, but they weren't. There has been TJ owners who were sucessful with locating them through Ebay, so you may want to check there.

My '10 Wrangler has the clear rear and side windows and I really wish they were tinted to match the tinted full door windows, but I can't justify with myself to drop the dough for a replacement kit since these windows are perfectly ok. If you search forum, you can find several threads where a "Static Cling" tint has been utlized in the past, but you do run the risk of damaging the tint rather easily when zipping the windows up and down.

I've been toying with the idea of utilizing a black wood stain, clothing dye or food dye since the plastic windows consist of a rather soft plastic. But, I would perfer to test the method on a sacrifical window prior to attempting the process on mine, because the stain/dye may "eat" the plastic. I do remember spotting a few convertibles with plastic windows at the local wrecking yard, so I may stop by to cut me out a test window.

I used the static cling tint on my rear upper halves and it's been great. They've been through 2 summers of use now, and look just as good as when it was installed. I was going to buy new ones through the dealer, but they're about $250 ea, and this only cost me about $20, and an hour or so of time. Now it might help that I only run the half doors in the summer, but I'd certainly recommend it as a reasonable solution on the cheap.

You could go to a shop that makes boat covers and have them replace the windows.
