This Smoked Tail Light Tint is for those of you that have a 2018 and up JL, with the halogen tail lights, not the LED tail lights, that are looking for something that's gonna change up the look of the rear of your Jeep. This is going to be a very easy one out of three wrench installation and I'm gonna show you exactly how to do it in just a second.So, there are a lot of different modifications you can bolt on to your Jeep. That's why most of us buy them. We wanna modify them. We wanna make them custom, make them a little bit more ours and different from all the other ones that rolled off the lot. And tail light tint, in my opinion, is one way to get a lot of bang for your buck when it comes to changing up the look of your vehicle. By just sticking some tail light tint on, we have really completely changed the look of the rear of this Jeep.Now, of course we could have changed the whole tail light out. We could have tail light guards. We could be installing bumpers or, you know, a variety of different things. But, again, bang-for-your-buckwise, this is very inexpensive and a very easy installation for a very large visual change. On top of that, this tint is going to be made of a very high quality material. This is some 8 millimeter vinyl, so this is a vinyl that's not going to crack. It's not gonna fade. It's not gonna curl up on the ends. It's designed to last for a very, very long time. So, even though it is an inexpensive modification, you're gonna get a lot of life out of this vinyl.Now, a lot of people look at vinyl and say, "I don't know why you want to dim down your lights." And that is certainly a concern anytime you're putting anything over the top of the light, especially in a sort of tint. And this is going to make your lights a little bit dimmer than if they didn't have the tail light tint on them. However, this isn't an overly dark tint. If you get up close to this you can still see the red and the white through the tail light. So this isn't going to completely blacken them. But if you are concerned about visibility, you might wanna look at a different type of modification.I've mentioned a couple of times now that the price of these is very, very fair. These come in at right around that $30 mark and I think that's a great deal for a pre-cut tint that is made of such a high-quality vinyl. Of course, you can just get rolls of this stuff. It's very inexpensive. And you have to cut it yourself. And it's gonna take a lot more time to install. This is a very, very simple installation at a very fair price. As I said before, I'm gonna show you how to install it. Let's get to it.For this installation, all we needed is a spray bottle with some soap and water in it, a clean microfiber towel, and a squeegee that comes in the kit. This tail light tint is going to be a very easy one out of three wrenches for anyone to do in their driveway. Even if you've never installed any tint like this before, this is going to be very simple, mostly because of the process that we're going to be using. We're going to install this using a wet installation process which basically means we're gonna mist some water over the top of the tail light. That way, when we stick our tint down, we have the ability to move it around a little bit, get it perfectly placed, and then squeegee that water out from underneath of it.If you were just to apply the tint dry, once it makes contact with the tail light, it's gonna be stuck down. If you have to pull it up to reposition it, you're going to stretch it out, there's a chance of tearing it. That's a much more difficult way of installing tint like this. And the wet method is going to work perfectly fine for what we're going to do.So, the first step is, of course, going to be to clean the tail light really, really well. So what we have here is just some soap and water in a spray bottle and a clean microfiber. So, I'm going to give it a little bit of a mist and wipe it down. So, now the tail light is nice and clean, we can unpackage the tint. As you can see, you have your left and your right side here. But they are the same, so it doesn't really matter which side you put on which side.The first step that we're going to do though, as I said before, is to mist the tail light again because this is that wet installation method that I just talked about. Now, you don't want the tail light dripping wet. You just want a little bit of a dusting, a light dusting of moisture over the top of the tail lights. So, from a little bit of a distance, with our spray bottle on a setting where we know it's gonna mist...and that should be more than enough.So, we're gonna start with the center section here and work our way out to that outside ring. We'll peel the tint off the backing paper here. Try to handle it as little as we can to keep it as sticky as possible, get it set right in the center of the tail light there. And again, because this is a wet installation, we can slide it around a little bit, get it positioned exactly where we want it. That looks pretty good. And then we're gonna take the included squeegee and squeegee some of the moisture out from underneath the tint. That's gonna make sure it sticks down really well. What I like to do is wrap the squeegee in a microfiber towel. That just ensures that you're not going to have any scratching to your new tint. That's going to do it for the center of that tail light.Now, we're just gonna repeat the process for this outside reflector area and the light and reflector on the side of the tail light itself. So again, nice light misting. This piece is gonna be a little bit more tricky because it is so big, and it's just that outside outline. We don't want the tint touching itself because if it does stick to itself, again, it's a little tough to peel apart. We'll just take our time with it. And then, again, grab our squeegee and our microfiber and squeegee some of that moisture out from underneath the tint.And we just have one more piece of tint to apply over here on the driver's side before we move over to the passenger's side and repeat the process. That piece is gonna be on the side of the tail light, so we reposition to move over this way. We already cleaned this pretty well. We'll give it a misting of water, peel the tint off the backing and apply it to the light.I know it can be hard to tell what effect you're gonna get from some tail light tint when it's just stuck on the backer and in the bag. So here we have a side-by-side comparison, tinted on my right, clear factory on my left. And as you can see, this is a very drastic change in the appearance of the rear of your Jeep.So, if you are looking for a mod that's gonna give you a lot of bang for your buck, I would recommend taking a look at this Smoked Tail Light Tint that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
