    The top is roughly 5% to 10%. First off you will for surely get a ticket for anything deeper than %20 and %20 is pushing it. I went double %5 on the top and rear winders and 35% on my wing and rollups.

    P.S. don't do the windshield, it's a felony.

    I did 5% on the front windows to match the factory tint on the top and it looks good. Its not too dark but backing up at night becomes a bit of a challenge that requires more paying attention..

    I tinted my cap windows including tailgate window at 5% and the driver and passenger windows at 25%. I haven't had a cop ticket me yet, and that is saying something living in PA. My buddy has his driver and passenger windows at 5% and gets hounded a couple times a month for it.
