    I got these as a gift. I was test fitting them today and took a couple pics. What do you like better? With or without visors?

    I'll take some pics where you can see the whole truck. I've got the hood protector/bugshield on the front and the black bed rail caps on the truck also.

    this is just my opinion...

    But, I think they would look even better if you tinted your windows...

    I agree. The back windows are darker than the fronts. I'll go check on getting the fronts tinted to match tomorrow. (The driver's side front tint has a couple bubbles in it anyways.)

    When I bought my truck it came with visors and a bugshield. Bugshield is long gone (well, still in my garage laying there) and the visors might not be too far behind.

    Yeah it's nice to be able to have your windows open when it's raining, or keep your windows open a little bit when you park your truck in the summer so heat can get out, but I don't really do either...

    I got visors on mine. I love those things because you can leave your windows cracked when it's raining and stuff.

    My truck came with a bugshield when I bought it too. I would have bought one if it didn't already come with it, because I just like how it makes the front of the truck look. I really don't think it's very functional though, I still get bugs all over my windshield. Right now it's about 55% for and 45% against visors. Pretty close race so far and I still haven't decided how much I like them or not. Thanks for everyones votes so far.

    JOKE: What's the last thing that goes through a bug's mind when it hits your windshield?

    ANSWER: It's asshole!

    Trust me, visors do alot more besides have good looks, they keep out the rain, allow you to smoke easier in your rig, and give you alot better ventilation instead of wasting gas on that a/c. Take a look at mine if you are looking to make your truck look unique as possible, add a little flair of camo. These are available for practically and truck or SUV, I ordered them for my ext. cab from http://camoheadquarters.com and they look amazing, especially with a matching bug shield! :rolleyes:
