It's a simple $65 ticket if you get pulled over so I usually always keep it in my glove compartment, give it and drive away without having to sit thru all the bullshit talking and such. I haven't got pulled over in my jeep yet but it's only a matter of time as these things stick out as you all know.
If rear tint is darker than 35% (metered at 30% or lower) then you can only have 50% front (meter at 45% or higher).
Factory tint is generally like 20%
So technically only allowed 50% on something such as ours.

35% only pertains to your vehicle never had tinted windows in the rear and then you can do 35% all around. Also a tint ticket in the city of Chicago is $250 so watch out when traveling there.

To add to this, according to the law they can fine up to $500. Depends on the town. One of my sister's friends in Bloomington got hit for $500.

Second offense in IL is a misdemeanor and they can tow your vehicle if they want. Up to the officer and how well they know the laws.
Just like bumper height and frame height violations on lifted trucks........I generally read up on certain laws in the IL Vehicle Code, LOL

That's bs. I just got a ticket few weeks back. 4 actually. Windshield, 5% 2 fronts, blacked out tails and no front plate( which nv law is if you don't have a front plate bracket your not required to have a plate). Pulled me over at night to top it off. I just got my medical tint exempt approved should be in the mail this week so no more tint tickets for me. So just going to fix the tails to dark anyway

Wow.. Up here in Mass they are bad in some city .. Really depends on the cop i guess .I've always put 5% myself ..Had it on 01 z06 ,03 escalade , 05 SSR , Everything pretty much.. The windshield .. Never .. It looks sick.. But how can you see out of it ??? I could hardly see out my sides at night .. LOL.. And if they give me a hard time when i'm getting a sticker once a year.. I just remove it from the 2 fronts.. And put it back on after.. LOL.. Its $250 fine up here as well .. And a moving violation.. SUCKS!

that sucks, I know for "trucks" the back windows (behind the driver) can be whatever you want...you can spray paint them if you feel like it. Not sure what is considered a "truck" though.

Darn Johnny! Sounds like the cop was not being very professional at all. I don't think holding you there and saying it had to come off now sounds right at all. At the end of the day you came away ok though. Knowing how VA police is and knowing your rig it could have been much more of a bad day.

Wow, I went school in Bloomington (ISU) and thankfully I never ran into that cop giving out $500 tickets!

Well apparently the cops where I live only go by the 35% rule because that's all I've ever been told since I was able to drive. Good to know tho...thanks!
