Go with factory tint, film is always a bother trying not to scratch it and some brands don't last more than 2-3 years. If your wife rubs fog off of the window wearing a diamond ring, you'll be lucky you don't get a scratch in the film.
X3 on Weathertech floorliners, had mine permanently installed for about 150K now. Liked them so much I bought them for my Camry too. Get off the water and load the boat, take out the stock mats and throw them in the back seat, jump right in with wet or muddy feet. The stock mats are way tough, 170K and still on originals, the carpet, not so good if unprotected.
I'm likin' the Weathertech in-channel vent visors and factory bed mat too!

i thought gulf states toyota added 3m film tint,,,
Yeah, is GST adding tint? Just because you can order it through a dealer doesn't mean it's "factory". GST offers a lot of add-ons that sound like factory options but are really aftermarket additions.
Go to toyota.com and look at "Options and Accessories" in the Tacoma area. If it's not listed there, it's not factory. I only see "privacy glass" mentioned in the context of the rear window. Even under the standard features, I don't see any mention of tinting in the side windows.
