Hello,

Anyone had experience with tinting the side windows. I noticed when the windows are up they have a little grease deposit on them. It seems like the window is up against something when it is down in the door. Is this a wear point if you had window film or a potential problem?

I assume you would also have to disconnect the battery to keep the windows from moving down when the doors are opened to facilitate tinting to the door top.

Thanks,

David

P.S. I removed my bed Taneau cover for a parade. It was very easy with 2 people. No adjustments when it went back on. Very well thought out design.
I would not hesitate to do again if needed.

I had mine tinted and it worked fine. I had been warned that possibly the tint would scratch, but after 5 months, no scratches. I recommend it. Make sure high quality tint is used.

Had my windows tinted and flames put on with reflective tint as well, anyone not getting scratches must have had a good tint guy because felt (or moleskin) needs to be added to the inside of the door to prevent the scratches. Other than the flames, most wouldn't know my side windows have been tinted as my guy cuts so close to the edge. Precision Tint (Greg), Victorville, CA...he is hard to get, very busy, might have to wait for an appointment, but he has done all my vehicles, wouldn't have anyone else :)

I had both side window's and the back window tinted last April and have had no trouble. Unless you have experience in tinting I would suggest using a pro.

Tinting Didn't Work On Mine

The dealer had tinted the side and back windows as a promo favor. This was done by a very reputable company.

When I took delivery on it, there were already scratches, especially in the bottom 1/2" area.

I took it in and they sent it to another excellent company. Removed the old tint and re-tinted. Within 2 weeks it looked like the first tint job.

Took it back and had them remove all tint. The stock back glass is dark enough could not see at night out the back.

I just recently found out about the moleskin addition. Probably won't tint them again.
