Factory Window Tint

Does anyone know what percentage the tint on rear and side windows (of an extended cab) 1995 F150 is? I want to buy the right tint to do the front windows.

Thanks!

Was tinted windows an option? If it is, that is news to me. But yes, pictures anyway.

I use photobucket. Just make an account there and upload your picture. and then there will be an image code that you can just copy and paste to here. but you have to log in every so often or your account gets deleted.

Figured it out!

weird weather outside, but you can see the difference. There is no aftermarket film on the rear slider or the extra cab windows.

It almost looks like your windows are just really dirty lol. I don't know what that is, but I'm fairly certain it didn't come like that from the factory.

It looks like every stock SUV out there with slightly tinted rear windows and clear front ones. I can't scratch the tint off inside or out. May not be stock, but definitely permanent. Who would replace the rear side windows just for tint? What would you guess the percentage......35% or 20%?

I'd actually guess it's about 50%. If it was 35 or lower I don't think I would be able to see the front pillar through the rear window.

It is factory, but seldom seen. It's lighter than 35 %, but unfortunately an aftermarket film won't match the "silver" appearance of factory tint.

Nice truck BTW.

Well there you have it, I learned something today. I do like that color scheme.
