    is a non-metalized, non-conductive ceramic technology film with 43% solar heat rejection, maximum ultra-violet rejection, excellent optical clarity. This film has a 78% Visible Light Transmittance, and its optical clarity and low reflectivity will not interfere with night driving.

    I've never seen that. Can you tell me what you paid for it and where you had it done.

    You go to Lumar website and search for dealers in your area. Then call and see if they will work on your truck, some of them don't.
    Paid $150 for two front windows

    I would not rely on the window alone. Adding some form of legal screen (several options mentioned) and/or sunscreen (I would really say *and*, especially if you're a flatbedder).

    "He was a truck driver for the majority of his life and never wore sunscreen," said Northwestern University dermatologist Jennifer Gordon, who reported the man's case. "We think the sun exposure just on this side of the face is what caused the damage."

    Maybe there will be a day when dark window tent will be considered an osha requirement for driver safety and ppe. Then mr. man can’t say a word about it.

    I know. No argument. But I’m thinking more towards the privacy protection thing. Same thinking with my home.Rolling down the road I don’t like people being able to see in to see what they can kill or steal.
