Default In-Channel or Stick-on vent visors?

Which do you all think looks better and is there any pros and cons or more of an advantage to either one?

Oh and is it true that for the in channel you need to let them "sit" for two days or they won't seal properly???

x2 on the in-channel vent visors.

I finally replaced my old ones (they were broke when I bought the truck back in 97-98) with a set I bought from a member here.

It's best to leave the windows rolled up for a couple days just to make sure the adhesive sticks to everything as well as possible.
After that, have it at.

I've used the stick-on visors on other vehicles & while they work, they're more noticeable than the in-channel style.

Talking Re: In-Channel or Stick-on vent visors?

In channel!!! To me, the others look like they don't belong. I went to the "hood" today to a junkyard and on the way I noticed a lot of "outside the channel" cracked and broken vent shades. The channel provides support and protection for the plastic. If you go to my album you can see a "not so clear picture" of my AVS brang vent shades. However, you will get the idea. I also suggest buying the AVS matching bug guard, both of which I purchased at Auto Zone. I probably did not get the best deal but I don't really know. But, you can also see a "not so clear" pic of my bug guard. They both really dress up my truck and took like 45 minutes to install and costed a little over a benjamin. The hardest part was removing the seal from the hood and putting it back properly with the bug guard. Get er Done! And I'm spent!

LOL I purchased the AVS Bugflector II about an hour after I posted this thread! And while I was in the store I read all these comments on my phone and purchased the in-channel vent visors too! Pics to come when I get them all on! Thanks you guys!

Cool Re: In-Channel or Stick-on vent visors?

Great minds think alike. I'm not going to lie I am not much of an auto mechanic. I have spent a few minutes under a hood LOL but I ain't no grease monkey. However, when it comes to making vehicles look dressed up I am pretty good at making them look sharp and keeping them functional. The vent shades are nice when you are on a highway and you want just a little wind but don't want to get blown away. Or you can crack em a little and allow a little "venting" in the summer. The main reason for my bug guard was "bugs" obviously and to cover up a few rock dings and prevent future ones. It looks pretty tough though too!

I think In-Channel looks better. It's what I've had on both my trucks.

In channel since 2001. I never had or liked the ones that stick on your paint. My first set for my 2001 had to be special ordered from a truck accessories place as everyone else including Wal Mart stocked the stick on the paint ones. Now I can find the in channel ones about anywhere.
