New 2014 Tundra owner looking for some accessories ...

Hey looking for some in channel window vent visors , Putcos or WeatherTechs ? I know certain ones don't allow proper window function when closing. Having front windows tinted tomorrow then vent visors. I have a black 14 double cab and I want to match front windows to the rear factory tint , how dark is it ? I have had other trucks and SUVs that seemed darker from factory but these don't appear all that dark. Can't wait til Bushwacker releases the pocket style fender flares that will be the next mod for me after windows. Now if I can figure out how to post a picture. Thanks in advance.

20%

Hardest part is matching the hue on the factory tint. Haven't looked closely at 2014, but my factory tint has a brownish hue. Just have the tint dude hold up 20% samples for you and match the hue. They can verify it's 20% too with their meter.

consider replacing all of the tint... it's very hard to match the tints... and if you are anything like me, it will bother the hell out of you if it's a little off. some lean to the blue side, some purple

Windows are "dipped"

Its a coating, not a layer of film.

Going with 3m color stable 5 on back and side windows plus small strip across top front windshield.

Front two windows and windshield want 3m crystalline 60 .. this way don't have to worry about tickets. Although CA only allows 70 max on fronts, 60 is like going 2mph over speed limit .. not going to get you unless really,really get that unlucky anal pos cop.

Perfect match with my LLumar 20% all around.

I was not that impressed with my Weathertech Rain Guards on my Tacoma, they dug into the seal, and sometimes would pop out. Honestly not that in a hurry to add them to my Tundra.

I would like to hear from others on fit and finish.

Bushwacker flares are out I thought? As well Llumar 20% all around and AirBlue on the windshield, your not gonna match the rear perfectly otherwise, might as well do the whole thing, unless you live in a commie state, then sfyl
