    Now that warm weather is coming to MASS, I am noticing when I open the drivers window, the incoming air hits me smack on the side of the head.

    I am thinking about those door visors. Will they change the direction of the air coming in???

    I understand they help when its raining to not get wet,,, so logic says they redirect the air flow coming in.

    So if they do what i want........
    Will black/smoke look OK on a sand colored truck??

    I am in MA too so I know the air you speak of. I have some vent visors installed on my Access cab and what they are doing is, iwith window cracked and inch or two, nstead of the air smacking you on side of head, they seem to be redirecting the air up higher (more along headliner). So, there is still some light air current on top of head but not much. I used to think vent visors were gauche but now I sing their praises like everyone else who has them.

    BTW if you had a Standard cab (which you do not I see, but maybe other MA reader will) I have a new nice unused set on craigslist cheap.

    Thanks

    What if you roll the window down more do they still help?
    I also have an access cab.

    With the window down more I do not think they help much. I think that can't be helped.

    Thanks
