Im on my way to get this done today. It wont be darker. Basically clear. Blocks out 80% of the heat ive read.

Anyone done this, you would think we all would for the desert

I’ve been running 70% ceramic for the last few months.

Great at knocking down the heat and it’s just dark enough that I can drive without sunglasses when the sun is not in direct sight.

Has not effected nighttime driving at all.

My only complaint is with polarized glasses things look a little different. I’ve always done the lightest shade whatever that is.

I have done the all the glass on my F 350. Including the panoramic roof and windshield. It really dramatically cuts down on the heat. Really big difference at the end of the day. Can hop right in and sit down without burning your legs. I have black interior. Good money spent in my option.

I installed it on my trucks windshield... I don't really see a big difference in temps.. I did notice that after I got it on there is a slight difference in clarity with it on..

Yup I did it too. Look for quality not cost if you can. mine was around $600 for all ceramic all over. My black leather interior is cooler than my wife’s cloth Altima. It does make a difference at the lake.

Depends...

If you get the 3M stuff like I did, it's freaking expensive and not too many shops carry it.

Other brands are considerably cheaper, but like always, you get what you pay for.

Mine is about 8 years old now. It needs to be replaced. Lights have the star effect at night. Too many micro scratches I guess. It's fine during the day still.

I have it on my Silverado and love it. A side benefit is the widows don't get the hazy film from the outgassing of the plastic.

Is this different than window tint?
Yea. It cuts the heat without needed to go darker.

Meaning you can install something that’s almost clear but will cut the heat. Vs going limo tint to fight the heat.

I did ceramic 75% on the windshield and 45% on the other 7 windows. Love it because you can’t see into the truck but is still drivable at night.

Rd ask for 3m crystalline, it is nothing “new” and it has been around awhile. It is expensive but worth it. Getting just your windshield done helps with the heat building up on your dash but to get the full effect of the product you should get it on all of the glass.

I have experience with a few other companies version and although cheaper it is not as effective.
