    They have double sided tape and brackets that fit under the rubber molding, very solid. After having in channel on my gen1 I won’t go that direction again.

    A blast from the past. My bud got that truck from his father, the old man thought it was cool. Lol. He just traded it in on a TRD pro tundra. I tried telling him a base raptor was way better, he wouldn’t listen

    I just put them on my 2014...I was afraid they would take away from the truck,but they look great and blend right in.Not many deals out there,but I bought from TruckAlterations (Luke)...he will save you a few bucks...more if you buy a few items....
    I'm also having problem with the Window Override on the Passenger side....just have not had time to try the trick on the video....anyone try it..? Works?
    I'd think ANY brand that is IN-CHANNEL will have the problem...not just WeatherTech...

    The weathertec has the cleanest look and lowest profile I’ve seen. I had read a little about the auto up issue and the fix, but it was mainly older trucks like 10-14 and was half expecting it’s better by now.

    I really hoped for less wind noise and less buffering though. From the posted pics I don’t hate the look. They will disappear on my black truck. The AVS ones stick on the outside solving the in track issue but there not as “tucked in” and low profile. Which I like. It’s only
    $100 I guess but I’d rather not take a benji and just throw it away.

    I might keep the windows cracked an inch or 2 all the time and not worry about the auto up feature... I say that knowing damn. Good and well the wifey will disagree and don’t want that annoyance. How frustrating is it really?

    I've had the low profile Weathertec since 2012 Gen 1 and Gen 2. Take the time to put them on correctly (using the little wedge piece that pull the WT away from the window at the bottom (most people miss this and thus they have issues with the auto feature). I've never had that issue and love them.

    I didn’t know of this wedge piece. Good advice. Thank you!
