Thanks all - Prices are nearly identical and all offer lifetime warranty so I'll be picking the one that has an opening when I can get a break from work. Appreciate the feedback, great to have a few recommended options to choose from.

I went with this guy for the tint on the 60...did a nice job and offers lifetime warranty.

Just a small one man shop on the SE side of town. Super nice guy, but you do have to make an appointment. Took about 2 hours total.

Edwin used him on his 62 as well.

As one person noted. Sunbusters is the place to go. Go to Sunbusters, ask for John to do your install, and tell Jim Baktash referred you. He will hook you up. John is one of the best, if not the beat tint guy in central Texas. His prices are not high either. Don't just go off of prices alone, tint is one of those things that takes an artistic eye and hand to get perfect.

I ended up at a little shop in cedar park called the "best tint shop". Price was fair, work was quality, and service was good working around my schedule. It was right on 1431 across the road from Bell Customs off road shop.

Which way are you going into Mexico? You can get it done cheaper in Harlingen or McAllen. Just find a shop that uses name brand tint film.
Dave, thanks for the tips but we're going thru Baja. I wanted to get it done cheap in Mexico, but we're going up the Pacific NW first then down thru Cali and I'd like to have the tint for extra security since everything we own will be loaded in the back of the 4runner.

Just went by Mother's on Lamar since we're around the corner from them. They seemed nice and it sounded like they could fit us in today, but we might wait until Monday for Sun Tint. They just have a better reputation so I'd feel warm and cozy going there. Quoted us $279 for carbon limo tint on all the rear windows and 35% for the front door windows.

That's not a bad price. I would run darker than 35 on fronts though. The laws now allow darker tint, and you can still see into 35.

I have 20 all around. I don't like driving at night with 5. I can't see objects while backing up.
