    2013 Ford Explorer Window Deflectors

    Hello All,

    I am contemplating on getting window vent visors but not sure if I should go with the OEM stick ons or the in channel ones. Any recommendations? Can anyone share their experiences and post pics if possible? I would like to see how they look inside and out. I have the 2013 sport and would like the sleek look but also want the best possible one to go with. Thanks in advance.

    As indicated in my PM, I have moved your post to this existing thread on the same topic. There are also several threads in the 'Modified' forum on this.

    Heard other forum members saying the deflectors triggered the bounce back feature on auto-up that kept some of the windows from staying up do to the thickness of the deflectors being in the window channel.

    Okay. Thanks. They didn't load before on a different computer. Have you had any problems with the windows not closing all the way? How do these compare to the stick ons from ford?

    I never had a problem with the windows sticking or going back down. These deflectors fit perfect. I first purchased the AVS stickon ones but wasn't comfortable on how they would mount so I didn't install them and waited for the Weathertech one be available. The Ford ones stick on the outside and I didn't like that look.

    Nice. Have any pics from far and from the inside to see how they look? Anyone prefer these over the in channel ones?

    Rain Guards

    Hi All,
    Quick question on the rain guards. Which ones do you recommend? I got a set of AVS in channel ones but its a very very tight fit and the windows didn't even go up so I had to take the rain guards off.

    Seems like the plastic was too thick or the space between the windows and weather stripping was to minimal.

    Would appreciate some feedback on what you used and recommend.

    Thanks.

    Ventvisors & Bugflector for 2015 PI Utility

    Hello. I would like to inquire if anyone has had success with installing LUND ventshades and/or bugflectors on a 2015 Ford Explorer. Does the 2014 and the 2015 have the same specs as far as size? My company car is a 2015 Ford PI Utility Ecoboost and I want to purchase the right sized accessories.

    Also looking for opinion on inside or outside window track mounting of the ventvisor. Pro's / Cons?

    Thanks!

    Those look good. I like the clean black line at the top.
