Default One more tint question

Does anyone know the exact tint percentage that comes
from the factory on the crew cab and back windows in the 2018 XLT sport?

Factory isn't really "tint", its more of a colored glass (privacy glass).

19% per my tint meter on my 2018 XLT. I put on 15% over it and meter reads 4%.

My tint shop thought it looked about 20. They suggested I do 25 on the front and it will appear to match since more light comes in through the windshield. The tint shop should have samples that you can look at outside next to the truck and see what you like.

Roughly 20% will be a good match.

20% is closet match... keep in mind tho the factory privacy glass offers no benefits as actual tinted glass does. Its strictly for privacy, no heat rejection, of any kind.
