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 guys2002 Chevy Silverado & 1995 Ford Bronco

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.2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4

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.

Love tint just don't love the hassle that comes with it when you do it dark enough that it looks good.
