I've seen his truck and is WICKED dark. but it does look good. I have 35% up front, and 5% all the way around... I didn't get the windshield done and have had no problems at all even with the strictest cops sitting right next to me at night and during the day..Illinois rules are dumb now. They legalized tint to all windows, but cannot exceed 35% if you do front sides. You can do 5% on rear doors back but then you cannot have any driver side or passenger front tint. You can exceed that rule and do maximum of 5% all around (no tint to windshield) with an exemption that gives you a WT (window tint) signified license plate. This reduces the stops to show proof via carried documents. You can under no circumstance tint the windshield here at any percentage below the top 6" of the windshield.
That said, I run 35% on the windshield, 20% on driver and passenger front, and 5% on rear doors all the way back. Only been ticketed once in a full year. Fines are steep here but I like my tint so I stay at risk. It's a cash cow for them as max fine is 1500.00 and second occurrence can result in license suspension for failing to comply.
