IMHO i would get the 3m type because with the channel type the window gets jammed going up and this can cause damage on the window motor.


fiddlyD

The tape on ones look like crap imo and everyone I know that has had them before has had them start coming loose after a year. The inchannel ones look like they belong. They are not hard to put on and once they sit they don't bind the window up. I have had them on my vehicle since day one...(I ordered them before my car arrived). I had them on my Xterra too and never had a problem in the combined 6 years. I would say these are a must have mod, I'll never own another vehicle without them..

You do want to install in a warm enviroment as you have to flex them quite a bit. Weatherflectors are what I have and recommend. do a google or froogle for them, I think they were around $90 for all 4. DO NOT get the dark ones just get the regular smoke. The regular are the same color as the OEM hood and sunroof deflectors. The only thing against the dark ones is that the A-pillar and mirror creates a huge blind spot and the dark ones will just make that an inch bigger and just about fill in the viewable area between the a-pillar and mirror.

Hmm .. the "in-channel" ones I have .. do have a thin layer of adhesive "tape".

But they (vent shades) do need to be installed in warm .. very warm weather, they will be flex'd quite a bit during the install, and the warm weather will help in the slight expansion, and adhesive working to aid in the setting of the ventshade in the window channel.

I too got regular smoke, so it matches the hood deflector too.

Will be shipping tomorrow, fedex express, not ground. :)

Yea, most places don't stock them locally for this truck, and if they don't, you get hit usually with a retail price since it will be special order for them. We do stock these all the time. :)
