    Default New Putco Window Visors

    Well, here is my latest addition. It's nothing spectacular, but hopefully they will work well. I had some AVS visors on my previous truck and really liked them. I heard about the Putco visors from someone on here (can't remember who off the top of my head) and thought I would give them a try. They were only $45.90 shipped for all 4 pieces! I'm going to leave my windows up for a day or two to make sure the tape cures. I'll let yall know how they work once I let the windows down.





    Pardon the dirty truck....

    The in channel visors look much cleaner than the one's that stick on the outside of the door, I saw that you said that you have to leave the windows up for a couple of days to let them cure. Where do they tape in at? I have never had a set ever, but those actually fit the lines of the truck and don't stand out too bad. Thanks for posting pictures of them, people like me need reference pictures before buying something.

    They fit inside the window channel and have 3M tape that adheres to the outer side of the window channel. The instructions didn't actually say I had to leave the window up to let the stuff "cure", but when I bought my AVS visors for my last truck, they did say to. I figured it would be a good idea to make sure they stick well.

    Okay that makes sense to me now, isn't that funny I can wire stuff like an SOB but I can't wrap my head around window visors! I have been thinking about getting a set for my truck, so I appreciate the help and pictures of your new one's. Thanks again!

    UPDATE

    I let the windows down on the way home from work today, and the visors work great! They definitely help keep the wind from pounding you in the side of the head when cruising on the highway. They also didn't flutter a bit at 75 mph. I'm officially pleased!!
