Just wondering which is better the in channel or stick on visors?
They really arent any different i have the stick on AVS black smoked ones they help out allot!
I know people that had there in-channels blow out while driving with there windows down. Wife has stick-on AVS since '05 on her Trailblazer and there hang'n in. I don't have any because I don't like the way they look, JMO.
Most brands of in channel visors now use double sided tape so the problems they had blowing out of the window channel should be non-existent if they're properly installed (as in clean the window channel good before installing them!).
The only issue I've ever had installing the in channel style is on the new fords and dodges that have the auto-up windows. You pull on the window switch and it goes up by itself, except with the auto up it detects the visor in the channel and makes the windows go back down. I haven't seen that feature yet on the new GM trucks, but I wouldn't be surprised if it showed up in 2012 or 2013.
It's about the same either way, these days, so choose in-channel or stick-on based on the look you want. Also poke around with the search function on the forums before buying, as there are high quality and low-quality for both types ... and learning what's worked well for others (and what hasn't) may save you some pain.
I have the in channel from weather tech they are a little pricey. But would nut go with anything but with weather tech they install in about 5 to 10 minutes with out tape.
My husband and I just bought a BEAUTIFUL 1985 Chevy conversion van and are trying - without much luck - to find the right window visors for it. We got some at the local parts store that were supposedly the right fit, but they blocked the vent window so we could not open it so we returned them. Has anyone had luck finding the right ones for vans/trucks with a vent window?
I would trade my doors for yours in a minute. I really miss the vents on the front doors. Wish they made a retro fit package for nnbs.
But I think they do make a vent delete kit for yours. It's expensive but may be your only option other than getting Chip Foose to make them fit.
