    EGR sells them too. You lookin for used or new? I have weathertech ones from my access cab but no rears of course. I didn't reuse them on the reg cab because the door is longer. See my gallery for pics if interested. Not sure what pg it is........

    I don't have either but I have Wade in channel by Westin. Got them at autoanything for $54 shipped. They were listed for 2011's but they fit the 2012.

    Every one so far only shows 2011 even though they are the same I am going to order avs I have had them on my 98 ranger for 10 plus years with no problems.

    Anything new on the window deflectors for the 2012? Does the 2011 model fit? I have an access cab and want to put Weathertechs on it. What fits? I have a request in to weathertech.

    My experience so far quality is not good compare to the ones I had on my 98 ranger, avs cheapen them. Driver side scraped like sand paper I purchased 1/2 trim tape and redid d/s door. For now it not scraping see how it goes.

    Thanks guys. I checked out the AVS and looks like they ought to work fine. Any TW sponsors sell these? Do you have other recommendations for internet purchase? I have them in my cart at autoanything.com right now.

    I'll also eventually purchase window deflectors (vent visors), but I'm waiting until the weather warms up a bit so the adhesive will firmly attach itself to the vehicle.

    Question for people who have these installed. I just installed a pair on my double cab. I am assuming since they go into the channel where the window goes up.(correct?) that when the front window goes up..the motor has a hard time pushing it out of the way it seems..especially when almost closed. Would this be detrimental to the window motor in anyway?(and the deflector moves in when the window isnt closed..since there is no adhesive on the front)

    I have in-channel visors on mine and the front also came in when the window was rolled down so I put a piece if 3M double sided tape on the front to keep them secured. I have had ZERO issues out of mine and love the lower profile of the in-channel

    Mine only did that when I first put them in. They've been in 2.5 years now and no issues. Just think they have to get seated in there good.

    As far as OP's question, I have the Weathertechs and have no complaints. Although probably not any better than the other brands. As long as you're getting in channel ones you should be good to go. Just don't get the stick on ones they're garbage.
