    Default Tint or No Tint?

    Well my birthday is coming up soon, so I'll a little extra cash for the truck. Since I got the truck (6 yrs ago) I have been torn between tint or no tint. Right now no tint all around, if I get tint I am looking at 35% front windows (NC legal) and 20% back. I know probably 95% of ya'll will say tint, but the reason I have not given in to getting tint is I love the show truck look, kinda of old school clear glass look showing the interior. Now that being said I know my truck isnt a "show truck" and the interior isnt customized but its in the way future plans. So what say you, GMTC?

    I have pics in my gallery for a reference, Thanks guys

    Tinting is a matter of taste. If done in unison ,with other upgrades ,I like it. Although I have seen some real tacky tint jobs against tacky paint and accessories.

    Well, as you know I love your truck but I think that would be the first thing I would do to it if it was mine is tint the windows and I think it would add to the look of the truck. Just my opinion.
