I had them on my old Vdub and loved them. They let the cool air in without the rain. Especially good since I had no AC. If I had full doors, I'd get them without worrying what anyone thought of them.

I have them on my Super Duty, but haven't found any I like for the Jeep yet... I prefer the "In Channel" type, as the stick on type will eventually have the tape wear out if your Jeep stays out in the weather year round. It's quite a shock to the folks behind you when parts liberate from the vehicle

I have them on my LJ. There when I got it. Not sure the brand, but they are the stick on style and are a little larger than the ones on my XJ. I made use of them all the time on the XJ. Probably would have considered getting them for the LJ if they weren't there. I have used them less on the LJ, but I think it makes a difference having the soft top on, hardtop goes on in a month.... Also, I have only had it since May.

What does being a smoker have to do with having these on?

I hadn't thought about these for my Jeep, but the ones in second picture posted by Wjay looks pretty cool.

Had them on my Ford Ranger and they worked great for keeping rain out and blocking glare. They were the tinted type.

Most people who are driving around with their windows cracked in the rain are doing it while smoking cigarettes...most non-smokers keep their windows up in the rain. lol

For those who said they love them, what brands do y'all use? As I have no AC I'm thinking these will be in order!

I've used them on every vehicle I've owned, with the Jeep being the exception. The only reason I don't have them now is because I have soft uppers.

My brother in law puts them on every thing he owns. He's not mechanically inclined, so I install them for him. He's been buying Wade visors and they appear to be well made, look good and are holding up well for him. I have no problem recommending them to anyone looking for vent visors.

Oh, so I'm supposed to keep the windows up in a rainstorm? But it's more fun with the windows down and the safari top on (or no top for that matter) in a rainstorm. And if I'm supposed to keep windows rolled up, I'll take the doors off

Thanks, guys, will look for Weather Techs. Plus they look like the pop in and out simply if I ever choose to have the doors on and don't want them on! Many thanks!!

I've ran them on various cars and love them. Only problem I ran into is the in-track one resides where your window will roll up and will eventually start scratching the top 1/4-1/2 inch of window. I also have the stick on type that are on my '99 crap-box and other than starting to crack from age, they will prolly be stuck on there for life.

I'm gonna get a set for my LJ as I live in a winter state and like my interiors to breathe. And no, I don't smoke and no one smokes in my cars, just like the option of cracking the window with no worries about weather

I made some out of garage door floor seal, cut em to size and used Silicone to adhere them, easy to remove if I ever need to and work perfectly. Don't think they look all that bad either

I stopped looking for them once I quit smoking. Now i just vape with the windows up. (If I even have the doors on.) That is one good thing about Texas. Doors come off in April and don't go back on until November.
