Default water drains into truck

Anyone else experience this? After a rain i get in my truck and if i roll down driver side window and make a right turn, water pours in from the roof. WTF? besides not rolling down the window does anyone have any suggestions?

I've experienced this. You really only have a few options other than modifying your roof shape:

- Make a turn or two before rolling down your windows to make sure the water rolls off.
- Use a long handled squeegee or rubber brush to push the water off before leaving.
- Park on an incline.
- Park in a garage.

This is an issue almost any vehicle is going to have.

I have vent visors on my '09, i always drive with my windows partially open, because i smoke

They make 2 styles,
In channel & stick on

the only thing with the stick ons is they make the blind spot at the A pillar, much larger. taking left turns, like winding roads & making left turns at inter section cross walks, can be troublesome

Where did you buy those? They look good, not too bulky.

They are from ebay. I had them painted to match for $80. Should have done it myself though.

i have visors as well, 99% reason for em is so i can leave the window open to smoke and keep dry plus i leave em open anyway to keep the cab aired out....for how much i smoke in my truck the smell is almost unnoticeable.

Roll the windows up, put it in the Auto 4x4 Setting for traction and gun it.. Then enjoy your drive afterwards..
