Default Side Window Deflectors (Rain Guards)

Rainy season is here so I'm looking at getting some side window deflectors. I like the idea of the weathertech ones that fit into the window channel (no tape). Anyone have any experience with these? Pros and cons of tape vs no tape etc.

Also if anyone has any pics of your Sport model with window deflectors, throw them up here.

I have Avs in-channel w/ tape on my truck, figure better to have tape on so some random wind gust can't tear them out. Or they won't just fall out if not snug.

Only con would be if I wanted to take them out, gonna be a little harder. But no plans on that.

I am also running avs and haven't had any issues since installed a few years ago.

I went the extra mile and had them painted as well.

I have had the AVS in channel on two 1500's and absolutely love them. Install takes about 15 minutes. The tape keeps them in place very well.

Those look really nice painted. I will have to check the avs ones out.

AVS in channel here also, over 1 1/2 years no problems, not binding, no screwing up my tint, excellent product, just be careful the edge on some of these products are not all filed down and can cut fast when you move your finger along the edge.

WeatherTech here. Love them. No tape on fronts and just two small pieces on rears but they aren't going anywhere, very snug perfect fit. I like the way they don't stick out as far as the tape on external ones, factory looking.

I have always used Weathertech, however on my 2013 1500 CC the rears do not stay in...they have now sent three pairs and they all are too short. Parts people swear the parts are correct....fronts are fine.
