    Wonderin what front vent visors work best for my '02 ext. cab?

    In-channel or ones you stick to the outside with the adhesive tape?

    so far ive read that the Weathertech or EGR's are the way to go...but any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    I ordered Weathertechs because I can't stand the ones that stick to the outside, it looks really tacky to me, like it was just an afterthought.

    Also you can find them for a steal on ebay. I bought 4 of them for my DC& paid around $ 40

    for sure. thats what i was leaning towards.

    but it seems like majority of people with them are divided on weathertech, or EGR's.

    so far im leaning towards the EGR's from a few posts ive read

    I have the AVS in-channel and they work great. You can sort of see them in this.

    I just got some EGR's slimline in channel

    No complaints at all.

    Much cleaner look than the old ones I had (adhesive)

    TRD Cat-back Exhaust. Semi-Debadged. Shorty 8 in. Antenna. Weathertech vent visors. TRD FJ Cruiser Center Cap Wheel Mod. Nitto Terra Grapplers. Inverter tapped into for outlet in cab. Tacomaworld sticker which adds 5 hp.
    Big fan of the in channel. I have the Weathertechs. Some people don't like them at least on the 2nd Gen cause the come down in the front and rub on the rubber. I like that they come down all the way in the front. No matter what brand, get in channel.
