    I was thinking of cheap additions for my truck that my wife could get me for christmas, i'd like some vent visors, any suggestions? Brand, where to buy, etc? Cheap but good is always a plus...

    I'm assuming the in-channel type will be better than the tape-on? Do they come with a set for the rear pop-out windows of the xcab?

    In channel AVS ones are bomb.

    I had the tape on and now have egr in channels up front. The latter are vastly superior to the tape on. I cannot speak to the rear visors

    Go with the In-Channel. I had the AVS outer ones and while they worked great, removal was a real pain. The heat in the summer melted the tape to the body and no amount of Good-Gone would remove it. I was out there with a razor blade, scraping it off and totally effing up my paint. I won't make that mistake again.
