Ventshades/Ventvisors.

To be honest I haven't a clue what they are called. But I had ones purchased from auto zone on my truck for a few years. They looked really nice. But today a tree branch took care of the passenger side one. So I took them off and removed the tape/glue etc. I would like to get another set. The main problem with the autozone brand was that it wouldn't allow me to open the vent windows on the doors. I would really love to use these windows but also have a visor as well. Does anyone know of ventshades that are made for these trucks that allow that window to open as well?

LMC sells the old-school style stainless steel ones that just go along the top of the window.

I have the vent shades on mine, all you have to do is position them along the leading edge of the door to get the vent windows open.

Thanks for all the replies. When i stalled the first ones I didn't account for the vent window... Now that one side broke and I removed them I ordered that old style stainless steel one that only covers the top of the window.

I orderd the stainless type for my build and 3 set was all screwed up so beware! I had no choice but to buy the new style.
