    I'm a new Tundra owner and want to install vent visors to reduce noise.
    I'm looking at AVS from RealTruck and was wondering if anyone has an opinion on In-Channel vs. the Tape on attachment.

    go inchannel they last so much better and do not mess up your windows , I had them on many trucks and love them . I have weathertechs . Look at how many tape on's have come off / broken and what they look like .

    I have the in channel AVS system. The channel system still has tape when you install the visors

    You will likely notice an increase in wind noise with the visors.. that was my experience with them

    I prefer the in-channel. I had one set that actually messed up the window regulator and oddly enough, it was on my 2006 Tundra that I bought new. When I sold that truck, the window regulator had slack in it to where it would drop a little when rolling down the window. I have never had that happen on any car prior or after that. However, my last two sets that I have bought have been the stick on, but they are noiser and don't look as good in my opinion.

    I have the tape-on from AVS. I had the same ones on my '13 Tundra. The only issue I ever had was when my wife opened her door too close to a tree and smashed the visor. I was able to pop it off using a little heat from a blow dryer. No damage to the paint underneath. I installed the same ones on my '18

    Yeah I didn’t understand what the OP meant by reducing noise? Can you clarify @avi8r2009

    I have the tape on. AVS LOW PROFILE. I like them because they flow nicely with the body and window lines of the truck. Had them for 5 months. Been thru a harsh winter and no issues. Doesn’t increase or declcrease wind noise.
