    What are your opinions about window wind deflectors / rain guards?
    Are the useful/functional for what they are intended for?
    What is the best type; in channel or exterior tape-on?
    What is the best brand?
    Any issues with fading, braking, falling off, etc?

    Don't have them on my tundra but have had on every other truck. Weather techs aee the only ones I have had and only ones I would put on my tundra. They worked great on every other truck I had them on so I would assume the same for the ones for the tundra. Plus imo look the best also.

    I have had AVS stick-on type since a few months after I purchased the truck. Very useful. I had a bunch of kids yesterday and we picked up five boxes of pizza. It fogged up the truck pretty fast. With window cracked (it was raining pretty hard) the problem went away pretty quickly.

    I run these on my Tundra and I am happy with them... I've had them on all of my vehicles in the past. I ran stick-on type on my mustang (due to window design) and I did have to replace the adhesive after several years, just something to consider with stick-ons.

    It's nice to leave my window's barely cracked in the hot SC summers and know if a rain shower rolls thru my interior won't get wet. Or when it's pouring and you want to get fresh air as you cruse down the highway you can open them a little without getting wet. I'm not a smoker but it could prove useful as well.

    Had the rain guards on my taco, loved them and definitely want them on the Tundra.

    I always liked the look of the look of the bug guard. But never could have one due to Tacoma eye lids and the grill. I may get one for the Tundra.

    I use AVS. I've used Lund, Wade which are OK, But like AVS the best. Ventvisors and Bug Deflector. Most brand deflectors/vent visors for the Tundra look nearly identical. It all comes down to material quality. AVS is one of the most popular if not #1 in sales. AVS' history goes back to 1935.

    I've used "in channel" vents with bad luck twice. They just didn't stay in place after awhile. Went back to exterior type with my AVS's. AVS uses high adhesive 3M taping which other mfrs don't use. Also, if you already have external ventvisors that came with cheesy tape, its easy to replace the tape. Home Depot carries the same high adhesive 3M tape that can be trimmed to fit.

    I just installed WeatherTech deflectors on my truck and I really like 'em! Installation couldn't be any easier. Took longer to peel the part number stickers off than to install. Highly recommend!
