Default Ventshades: In Channel or tape-on?

I'm going to spend some birthday cash on a set of ventshades. What is your preference? In channel or tape-on. Going to go tomorrow.

tape on are more secure, quieter.


in channel are cleaner looking but can be a pita if you have auto up power windows.

I updated my post in GM trucks but not this one. I went with tape-on Autoventshade Ventvisors.


The guy at Advance Auto pretty much voiced my concern for me. He said, in-channel look great, but are you willing to mess up a $200 window motor over a visor? The answer is "no". I'm very happy with the results. When I bought the truck in August last year, I had 3 "must haves" I wanted. Running boards, a toolbox or tonneau cover, and ventvisors. Now I have all three!

Now if one of you could help me talk my wife into a bull bar......
