    I usually hate the look of these but I kinda think having them is a bit of a plus. Which ones are you guys running? Do you like them? Would you have gotten a different set?

    Thanks for your input.

    Pics always welcome.

    AutoVentshade for me. Whichever you get, make sure you get the "In-Channel" ones, much cleaner looking.

    I had WeatherTech inside the channel style on my last truck and as much as I cleaned the glass they scratch the shit out of your windows every time you open or close. I am leaning towards the stick ons even though I hate to put them on the paint

    I have the Weathertech in-channels , I like them , however in sub freezing weather they rattle a little bit , I think it's because the window seal rubber is less pliable

    Whatever ones you decide on, I sell them all.

    Weathertech got pissed at me for low-balling the price, so call or PM. AVS runs about $55 for the 4-piece, stick-on or in-channel. Have to double check EGR pricing before I throw a number out.

    Update ... 3 sets of EGR left, #574981. No longer selling the brand. $60

    Weathertech for me. In-channel and have a nice low profile.

    WeatherTech is what I've had and liked their quality of products very much but to be honest, it's a flap of plastic, a cheaper one isn't really going to under perform WeatherTech all that much. . .

    Yeah, in-channel. WeatherTech has worked fine for me. They have some nice rubber floormats also.

    Besides keeping some rain out with the windows down a little, do they decrease the wind noise at all?

    to many to list, check the build thread
    Weathertech's for me, in channel one rock but i do find myself cleaning the channel quite a bit to keep the windows from getting scratched and hearing an awful noise when rolling up the window for that last 5%.

    I have the auto ventshade. The newer models are awesome. The older ones have a weird indention at the lip of the visors. The newer ones have a rolled lip so its way better looking.

    I didn't go with the inchannel ones. I like the over molding ones better, they keep the water out of the moldings, an area that is prone to rusting. My cousin runs an auto body shop and swears cars with it rust less.
