3 External Sunvisor Questions
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hey Guys-

The wife and I like the look of an external sun visor which mounts to the cab above the windshield. I posted a few pictures from 2 different companies:

Questions:
#1. Have any of you installed one of these on your truck and if so, how is the visor mounted? I can't find any assembly instructions online.
#2. Are holes required to be drilled on the outside of the cab?
#3. Or, does the visor somehow mount to the rubber around the window in the channel?
#4. If you mounted one of these visors....any regrets?

Any other advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Tod & Nancy

my truck has one. it was already installed when i bought the truck, but id say its either sheet metal screws or nuts and bolts holding it on.

i love the way it looks.. one annoying thing is it blocks your view of traffic light when youre first and waiting for green. i have to either stick my head out the side window, or duck down low to see the light.

Thanks for the tip Softpatch! I'll probably get mine from Bothers or NPD.
