    I just put the AVS on mine, looks good and was about 50 bucks via Amazon.

    Not too much
    I had WT on my 4Runner and on my 17 Taco. I like them. Spent more than 50 bucks but they seem to be pretty good quality with respect to scratches ,etc

    I really like my AVS in channel. Got them from carid.com for about $33 shipped. Had to send first set back as the were damaged in transit. Second set was pretty much perfect.

    Very pleased with AVS, paid $33. Went through two major hailstorms in the mountains this fall and they are unscathed.

    Same here. They don't do much other than while parked, then you can get some ventilation. Quite noisy at speed with windows cracked open a bit. IMHO.

    I had the AVS on my previous taco and they were crap imo... I went with the weathertech’s this gen and they’re far better quality. They’re more expensive but you do get what you pay for. Good luck!

    The AVS front shades have their logo on them, prominantly situated at the back of the shade. Detracts from the look.

    It’s a tight fit but they don’t rub or slow the window down going up. I had problems with other in-channel visors on my wife’s former car but the AVS visors don’t cause any issues with my Tacoma.

    Spiders like living under them too. When you crack your windows they come right on in your truck and start building webs. Hate that getting in and your face breaks through a web. Dust and grit blows all over the interior of your truck here on the prairie if you leave the windows cracked with window visors. Some people don't mind riding in a dusty truck. I have rode shotgun in several of them.

    I have the AVS as well. Went on fine, work fine, but are a little chintzy. The logo does bother me (one is actually crooked on there too), but not to the point that I want to pull them off.

    Installed WeatherTech today. Snapped right in with no adhesive. They do have a sticker logo on them that I think I can remove.
