    Anyone able to tell me what visors these are? I messaged the owner, but not sure they get alerts; due to no replies. The AVS site doesn’t show anything that appears this flat.

    I'm curious to see what your impressions are - installation, wind noise (if any), and how they work to let air in/out and keep rain out.

    No offense! but as good as that 4Runner looks, there could be pink flowers painted on the side, and I’d be looking for them too!;)

    in all honesty they do look good, sleek, and slim.

    If you read the review link I shared, he goes into detail about them and compare them to the larger traditional wind/rain deflectors

    I did read that review, and it seemed that while they liked the look, they would prefer the regular AVS version vs the low-profile, due to their thinking those would provide more window opening space, and less rain intrusion. From that install/review:

    "They’re definitely much lower of a profile than the last set I had on our other 4Runner. So far they have been working, however, the other rain guards they make definitely prevent more water from coming into the cabin.

    It’s pretty simple. These lower profile guards protect a small gap of open window space and the larger rain guards protect more open window space. If you are looking for the most protection and water prevention, go with the regular size window guards. the regular size guards have a larger lip that hangs over the glass much farther than these low profile ones.

    If I had to choose an option between the two, I would go with the original ones. Even though the low profile ones look cleaner, the original ones actually do a better job at preventing water from entering the cabin. My main gripe with the low profile version is that you have to really find the sweet spot with where the window sits and what the visor can protect. The full-size rain guards allow you to open your windows more, letting more fresh air in, all while keeping the rain and water out."

    So, I am curious as to whether @Toyota.AMR shares their opinion of these...
