Best rain gaurds?

Just bought an 11 crew cab 350 last week. Looking to see your opinions on which rain guards to get? In channel, stick on? and which brand?

Thanks,
Matt

I picked up an 11 CCLB on saturday. And have always put rainguards (ventshade?) on my vehicles. Hope somebody chimes in soon, that has um on there truck.

I have the in channel ones also they seem weird the first day you use them since they are
So tight rolling the windows up since you added thickness of the ventshades to the window channel but after a day in the sun everything stretches out and they work great.

we have the in-channel ventshades on our hummer and dont really care for them. all of our trucks have the vent shade stick on ones that go on the outside. Never had an issue with any of them.

I'm a fan of the exterior stick on type. I had the in channel ones and they were ok, but I always felt like I was over stressing the power window motors. As far as effectiveness, they all keep the water out the same.

Ya, i just felt the in channel ones hung down further. like you said they both do the job.

I've had both...currently, I have the stick on ones and they're fine. I went with the ones I could get the fastest and cheapest.

AVS in-channels here... never been a fan of the stick-on type.

Nice to have choices. It'd be pretty boring if we all liked the same thing.
