    Welcome to the site!

    I don't know what your state laws are but in MI any tint below 3" from the top is illegal, I have 20% on my entire front windows and haven't had any problems with the police, factory tint is right around 20% there in a tiny difference in the look and you can't tell unless you really look close. another thing, when you get the windows tinted make sure you get the better tint.

    there is two types of tint, the good and the bad, make sure you get tint that wont fade, some places dont even use the crappy tint but double check, I promise you don't want your tint turning purple after a few months.

    Hope this helps and enjoy your new truck!

    I am coming back to Chevy off a 2 year lease on a Toyota Tundra. If you want any opinions from me on that POS don't hesitate to ask.

    My 09 is Summit White and one of the first things I'll be doing is getting the front window tinted. Does anyone have an estimate of what percentage is the factory rear privacy glass? Would Limo tint look like a match or appear to be backwards with the fronts darker than the rears..

    also I am trying to decide about what to do with the Door handles. Are there options there with going with body colored door handles or chrome overlays.. Same with the mirrors.

    The factory privacy tint is the glass itself. So you're going to want to tint the back as well and they will be darker (2 tints X). As for limo tint, I wouldn't recommend it unless you never drive at night, and it never rains. "Carbon" tint is the best. I have 18% tint and it seems just right
    As for the doorhandles I don't blame you at all. I picked up a set of painted factory takeoffs on ebay for about $100 (for the crew cab). Makes a WORLD of difference, TRUST ME! And actually doesn't take long to swap out.
    Hope this helps!
    Here's mine with 18% tints and painted doorhandles. (the textured door handles were grey when i took them off)
