    I'm thinking about getting a Lund Visor for my truck (75 K20 Pickup)

    I know 4wheel & off-road was totally bashing them a couple of issues ago in their reader's rides section, of course after they rolled a perfectly good full-size Chevy (in my opinion), their thoughts on anything are moot points!

    Does anyone have any opinions on these good or bad? or had problems with them?

    With the angles I put my K5 in, I would never ever put 1 of those on. I need to see as much as possible. They might look good, but looks aren't everything.

    I have had one on mine for a year now, I like it, it offers shade and a lot of truckers call it a little big truck cause of the lights. It also helps when it is raining and or snowing at keeping the windshield a bit cleaner.

    I like the way they look, but with where and how I wheel mine it would just get torn off....[​IMG]

    I rode in a truck that had one and it really keeps a lot of the sun out and it'd be fine if you just run in the mud.

    Hey IGOR , I have a lund Moonvisor on my 88 and have wheeled extensively with it and it takes a beating. Haven't lost it yet. I'm on the site in the readers rides under mudfreak.

    Ben, don't know if you saw mine when I picked up the winch in my Blazer but I have one on it. You can see a pic on the site below. My rig had it when I got the truck 6 years ago............I personally like it a lot. Like you say, the mags make fun of them but what the heck? They look pretty good, help with rain and sun and are strong. I suppose if you are going through a tight spot with heavy tree limbs hanging down it could get whacked but so can/do fender flares that a lot of guys like.

    Fender flares wouldn't stand a chance with me, but unfortunately they are required in some states for oversize tires and there's not a whole lot you can do about that except break the law

    I think it makes trucks look cheap. Just my opinion. [​IMG]
