    anyone try those plastic visor things for your windows?
    do they work good?
    are they quiet? my wife smokes, and the noise from the wing windows at speed can be deafening.

    anyone?

    First thing I put on mine and I LOVE them, they work great, hardly any noise and they do suck the smoke out, and you can have the window down when it is raining and not get wet. They are great!

    Got them thingies on mine. Ventshade molded plastic air deflectors. Man, that was a mouthful. Work pretty good. If you get a set have the shop where you bought them install them. Costs just a little extra, but that way you get the lifetime waranty. I'm on my umpteenth set. Something about storm chasing in Oklahoma tends to be harsh on them. Tornado's and Hail and such. Local Offroad shop gets tired of me during storm season. hehehe

    I had the bigger ones and liken them, but they aren't that stylish. Eagle are yours the bigger style or more "half" style?

    Mine have been on about a year, I smoke and my install Telephone tech does not so It really helps there, the smoke is sucked out my window and he does not smell it at all...

    I don't know if your from an area that has cold temperatures, but I know guys that have them and they get super brittle in the deep cold. I'm from Wisconsin so it get damn cold here. My friend has replaced his several times. I still they're a great addition and am thinking about getting some myself.

    I installed a set of the small ones last week. They work exactly as advertised. Went wheelin' yesterday, had lots of treebranch-to-body action going (newbie gettin' crazy out there!), and they're still solid. Just make sure you clean the area well if you DIY. Use extra alcohol if there's any doubt. The quality of your prep work will determine how well they stick, so use the appropriate amount of time and elbow grease. Avoid the beer, too. It makes for a crooked (and stupid-looking) installation. Good luck!!
