    I'm looking to get some (ventvisor) window deflectors. I saw these on Amazon but I'm not sure if anyone has had any experience with these. Amazon says they don't fit the 2016 but Q&A's below the listing say otherwise. They have pretty good reviews.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000CF8W1...TF8&colid=2W66JAWE1KNJA&coliid=I2VA2SI9WABU5G

    Input?

    I'm open to obtaining some from another seller if needed be. Amazon was just the first place I had looked.

    Check out weather tech too... have had them for about a year.

    No problems and fit is pretty solid.

    The Amazon fitment checker isn't always right. The best way is to go to the manufacturer website and find the part # you need, then cross reference that with Amazon. I do this with most stuff and have saved a lot of money that way.

    I have AVS on my 4Runner for about 5+years. I also had them on my 16 taco and I have them on my 16 Tundra. I think they are great, never tried weather tech.

    I've never see that before or even thought of that. That's brilliant.

    I had the low profiles inchannel and the rear was so thin they fluttered at highway speed when window open . I took them off and went for the original design . Don t regret putting them in the recycling bin at all.

    In Channel. I had them in my truck and love them. The front ones were held in my friction only (no adhesive) and the rear was held in by adhesive. Clean out the channel with rubbing alcohol, and once you install them leave the windows rolled up for a few days so they properly seat. After a year and a half, mine were sill super stuck in there and took a good amount of force to get them out.

    Went with these from Amazon: Wade 72-88410 Smoke Tint Slim Wind Deflector - 4 Piece. I've always had the adhesive ones and never had a problem. I like the look better than in-channel.

    if you are going to do it do it soon do not try installing them in 20 degree temp the adhesive will not bond....i am guessing you live somewhere where it gets cold?
