    I'm thinking of getting a set of WeatherTech side Window deflectors - anyone have any experience with them?

    Had them on my old durango -- bought them because I was a smoker back then... did the job.. .but I don't know how well they last as I only had them on for 6 months before I got rid of the truck.

    I've had mine for 11 months and they are still good as new. The mounting edge that gets inserted between the window seal and the window is machined down to about half of its original thickness and fits great. I highly recommend them. Installation takes 5 minutes.

    It's all in my head at the moment...
    I've had them on all vehicles I've owned and loved them. I had yet to pull the trigger on the Tacoma. There is more needed in life at the moment than these.

    It's seems a bit cheaper on WeatherTech's site. The price plus shipping matches other site's prices without shipping. Most have free shipping over $150 so maybe you'll want to do a bit more shopping.

    Easy Cheesy to install. On my Yaris they were in before the UPS guy pulled out of the driveway.

    I've used WeatherTech in-channel window visors on two vehicles (4.75 and 3.5 years in use), and I still recommend them.

    I'm considering them myself. I hated the way they looked on my Explorer as it was more street oriented but I'm thinking on the Tacoma it will look better. It's too damn hot down here not to have them.

    Thanks Gents!
    I'm going to order a set tonight (I've already got a set of the floor mats it's unbelievable how much crap is in them - and not in the rug - this winter).

    I've heard that the in channel weather tech screws up your tint. Anyone have this issue???

    Debadged. ARE Topper. Tailgate mods, including locking handle. BAMF LCA skids.
    Love mine on a 2012! (5 months)

    I prefer the more clear ones (light smoke tint); I find the darker ones increase your already too big blind spot.

    I have a set for a double cab still in the plastic. The in channels. I quit smoking so I have no use for them. I would let them go for $50.00. You pay the shipping

    I had to take my in channels off when I had the tint applied because they caused it to wrinkle as it was being installed. But I left them off for about 24 hours and put them back in. No problems since. Had them for about 4 years now between two Tacomas, and about 9 months with the tint. Highly recommend them.

    The fronts have been great, however one of the rears is so loose that if I crack the window it will eventually fall out - how do I know?? Had to chase it down once.

    3m double sided tape. Solved the same problem on mine. Though I never had to chase one down.

    You talking about the black foam type used to mount trim or the thin cellophane tape?
