    I just got a 2013 ram and I am gonna use it for work and personal. What do you guys think about tinting the front windows on the truck? Does it look shady? I wouldn't do a dark tint just to keep the sunlight out.

    A 30% tint on those side window's will do the job, and it's not too dark. This worked well in Savannah GA. it made a big difference in that hot-ass place. It cost about $75 a side and the tint plastic lasted about 9 year's.

    In NY there is a tint limit for cars/trucks.

    The § 375 (12-a)(b)(2) of the Vehicle and Traffic Law requires that side windows, both front and back, cannot be covered by a window tint film that allows "light transmittance" of less than 70 percent. This means that some degree of aftermarket window tinting is permitted. As long as the window tint film allows 70 percent of visible light to pass through the film and the window glass, your windows do not violate the law.
    If you choose to tint your windows, New York State does not ban any tint color; however, the tint cannot reflective light or appear metallic or mirrored. Additionally, if you bring your vehicle to a company who performs aftermarket tinting work, under Vehicle and Traffic Law § 375 (12-a)(d), there must be a sticker affixed to the window, between the glass and the tinted film, identifying that the tint film is of a legal percentage for New York State.

    Not an option here in FL. No tint and your interior will suffer.

    Same here, never thought twice about it. Gets hot as hell in the summers here in Georgia and you need something to protect your truck, fading and cracking on the inside, also some what to keep it cooler.
