rain vents

I had them on my 99 and could not wait to get rid of the truck because of them. The glue they use is so tough that to remove them rips the weather stripping.
Seriously, sit in a truck that has these installed and check for vision restrictions. Because of the smoked nature of these vents they give the forward pillar the feeling of being 12" wide in my opinion. They may look cool from the outside but they do restrict your vision from the inside.

I know your pain. We just started getting some around here (Central FL) over the last 10 days or so.

I hope you get some relief soon!!!!

I've had them on my last three vehicles. It is great for ventilation on hot days. I have had the in channel and exterior mount ones and I recommend the exterior ones. The interior ones can throw your window slightly off track when the window is rolled up. Just my opinion though.

WeatherTech smoked in-channel versions are great.
