    Does the 2012 rain visor in channel fit on a 2013 Tacoma double cab. I thought it was the sane until I called Rons and they said its different? Does anybody know and if it does where can I get them?

    Are you a smoker? If you don't need them I'd recommend not putting them on. They increase the wind noise with the windows rolled up.

    I have to disagree with toku, I have had them on several vehicles, including my Tacoma and have never had an increase in wind noise. If you do decide to get some, deff go with the weathertechs.

    Well aerodynamically it's impossible for it not to disrupt the air flow around the truck. That disruption will cause some type of increase in sound.

    It's not very noticeable, I'm just hypersensitive to sounds when I drive. The day I installed them, I noticed the increase in wind noise. But since then it hasn't been an issue. (you get use to it)

    I still have them on because I think it make the truck look better. (I definitely don't need them. I don't smoke)

    I even hate my TRD CAI because of the increase noise. But it looks great in the engine compartment. so I leave it on.:D

    Man, if your that sensitive to sound, you bought yourself the wrong vehicle. I don't know how you could possible here wind noise from those, over all the other road noise these trucks let in the cab. And don't think you need to smoke, to want to enjoy fresh air on a rainy day. I love mine for that reason. :D
