Default Window visors

I like the ones that go inside window seal but dont want any problems. Anyone have pros vs cons compared to the ones that just stick to the outside of door over window? Thanks for your help.

I to been wondering and have had alot of good responses.
i have heard both ways on in channel. verses the stick on.
I like the look of in channel BUT worried about drag and wear on power window motors.
search the forum for vent visors, that was my post on this and see what people are saying.
I was thinking about the weather tech in channel.
still havent made mind up yet, tho
good luck

the IN Channel don't stick out as far
i have the stick on type & my vision on the drivers side A Pillar sucks
try going on a winding road with 1/2 of your vision blocked
i have come way to close to running over people in a intersection, because i never saw them as i was taking a left turn, luckily for them, i spotted them just as they stepped off the curb

Were you working in this pic Tom, or getting pulled over for hitting a pedestrian?

Shouldn't you be focusing on the road and not taking pictures.. especially with police around

I have the AVS In channel.. Love them, have had no problems with them at all, and personally am not a fan of the stick on type... In channel looks more clean on the truck.

Had in channel on my 89 Dakota and now on my 05 Ram. Haven't had a single problem.

I have AVS In Channel. Sometimes the window catches on it once in a while when I do the auto roll up. This happens when it is hot outside. They stay in place well and AVS will replace them if you break them or it falls off. I broke one installing it and they sent me the entire set. I am tall and sometimes it blocks my vision slightly. Overall I am happy with the product. No issues in terms of window not sealing properly.
