    Has anyone used the in channel rain guards and if so how’s the fit and does the windows still operate correctly when rolled all the way up in the gasket seal

    I went weathertech in channel ... after install I was second guessing to rip them off or keep them. When the widow would top out you would hear the glass contact the visor. After they “settled in” the gasket it now goes up without any noticeable noise and fits great !

    That’s what I’m worried about and hate for it to eat the top of my limousine tint off due to friction and being so tight

    It was grating my nerve for a of couple days worrying about the tint also. My son has them on his F-150 ... he had advised me to wait and pop them in during the hot summer months for them to settle in easier.
    Nope ... Dad knows best and pops them in during dead of winter ... I should of listened lol

    I’ve got the weather tech low profile one, there is a click when the windows reach the top, but it isn’t that bad, I rarely lower the window. I like the low pro design.

    I have weather techs and they caused some small scratches at the very top of the window. Now everything is fine but Im glad I didnt have the windows tinted when I first got em.

    I had AVS on my taco. No complaints. After 14 years, there was some minor scratching in the top of the glass, but not bad. You only see it if the window is partially down. Never an issue with the visor coming loose. I’d put them on the Tundra if I was still in Texas, but don’t really feel the need with the summer heat in NC.

    My scratches are also in the glass.
    It isn't limited to the tint.

    But they look so great...:D

    I ended up putting 3M tape on the front visors.
    The rears come with it..

    Anyone know of chrome in channel rain guards? I can only find the stick on ones.

    They look nicer but will wear on the glass and/or tint.
    I even take a q-tip and run silicone spray in that channel against the plastic visor that touches the glass, but it still scratches.

    I had tape on visors on my 2005.
    Can't remember who made them.
    Every 2 or 3 years I had to remove them and replace the tape as it would give out and they would flap in the wind....:eek2:

    I only use in channel rain guards AVS; they work perfectly no issues. I did not want nor like the look of the wind deflectors stuck on the outside.
