Another window visor question

I searched the thread and got some good information between EGR and Weather tech window visors for my new 2011 access cab.

I'm still debating and need your opinions to make a final choice...
I had weatherteach on my previous car but had problem w/ window having difficulty closing up (visor is too tight and rubs against window and visor itself).

It seems like EGR is cheaper but never had this brand before and wondering about its quality as well.
What's difference between slim line & regular visor?

Finally, if you guys know any place w/ lowest price on EGR or Wethertech, then I would really appreciate it.

I think window visor is a must item for taco owners.
thanks in advance!

I bought my EGR's from Amazon for $46 for my DC. They show for like an 05-06 only but still fit up to current model as nothing has changed. The ones I have are in channel and slim line. That is why I went with them, they are very slim. As far as the channel, I added tape to mine for the fronts and the window still rolls up just fine. It is a little tight but not too bad. BTW, mine shipped from Atlanta and had them in 2 days with the free shipping. Here is a thread about the EGR's that made me go with them. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/pro...s-channel.html

Here's mine.

Thanks Taco Dawg.
Yeah, I need channel one not that sticky one. Damn good price, too!

So, even though it says it doesn't fit w/ 2011 but it will still work, right?

No problem, just note that the EGR site only listed up to 2010 model for yours. It did the same on mine If I remember correctly but these trucks have not changed and they should be the same for the 2011. Maybe call them to make sure? I just think it's the web sites not being up to date on the year models. I felt confident on mine and they fit perfectly. But of course mine was a different part # for the double cab.
