    I saw a nice DC LB today in a parking lot. It had Ventshade window visors on all four door windows. They looked good, slim profile. I'm looking to get some window vent/visors for my truck. Anybody have these? Are they good, bad?

    I have the Weathertech in channels on my DC , I like em , the only complaint is that in below freezing weather they can rattle a bit , I believe because the weatherstripping for the window is less pliable when cold .

    Many are happy with EGR's as well

    yeah i think he means the avs ones......i had those on another truck i had and they were fine except you had to have the passenger window rolled up just right or youd hear an air leak. usually rolling it down a crank then back up would solve this. i have the egr in channel ones on my tacoma now and no complaints so far which is nearly a yr.

    Agreed I have weathertech ones and love em. They have seen -10F with no rattle for me. I didn't get the back ones...cause the windows don't open so to me it was a waste of money.

    I'm sure you guys are right, they were AVS shades. The raised molded lettering was small and hard to read. All I could make out was Ventshade. Think they were made in Marietta Ga. Sounds like either Wethertech or AVS is the way to go. Thanks for the input.
