I just bought my new truck and I have been searching for
"In channel" side window deflectors but have not had
luck. Dodge sells the "stick on" or "tapped" kind instead.
Anyone had any luck finding some for your's? I am aware
of the back 2 windows being the tape on kind. It is the
front two that worry me the most. I don't have any depth
perception so I need the side mirrors to not be blocked
by the kind that go all the way down the window.
Thank you so much for your help.

WeatherFlectors run all the way down but the Lightly Tinted ones are
easy enough to see through. They're still a bit distracting sometimes
when coming coming around corners and one eye is looking at the road
through plastic and the other eye isn't. They do not block the mirrors.
It looks like, for your Dakota, the rear pieces also fit inside the channel.
Since I was ordering quite a few other things from JC Whitney I decided
to try out the WeatherTech deflectors. They worked perfectly! :-)
Thank you for your suggestion. I know there are others out there who
are glad to have the information.
I have them on both the Ram and Dakota and just bought a set for the Blazer we
bought.. hate to drive without them..

sorry.. this is easier:
I have found that not having depth perception only really affects
day to day things about once every other day. Now, the problem
with the new truck is that I have a one car garage and won't even
attempt to pull the truck into it. I may be able to get it in but would
certainly play heck getting it back out. :-)
Oh come on! Be adventurous. :-)
I have a two car, two door garage. When I first purchased my house, I
was concerned that my truck wouldn't fit into the garage from height,
depth and width perspective. The result is that it does fit but I have
1) Width: Fold the side mirrors in. I have about 6 inches total width
(3 inches on each side if I stab it directly center) of wiggle room
when pulling in.
2) Height: My satellite radio antenae pod sits on top of the cab. I am
just able to squeeze under the top of the door opening with 3/4" to
3) Length: I have exactly 2 inches total of extra room. So, if I leave
my hitch on, I can't close the garage door.
I only pull it into the garage when 1) the weather is getting bad or 2)
when I know I won't be driving it for a few days.
Your truck may fit. Problem is, if you truly have a one car garage,
the only way out is the sliding rear window. :-)
If pro and con are opposite, what is the opposite of progress?
I just bought a cover for it for the winter (snow and ice). But if hail
is in the forecast I probably will attempt it. I will probably have to have
someone else pull it back out though. The garage is off-set just slightly
so it makes the situation even worse for pulling back out. I have already
backed back into the gate that is between the detached garage and
house with my old car. I can just see me backing straight back into the
corner of the house! Holy crap. LOL
No, no, your using the brail method. <G>
Go to a parking lot(a m/t one) and try to get familiar with the truck. Park
it between the lines, back it between the lines. You gotta learn where the
heck the corners are. Have somebody guide you, while you use your mirrors,
stopping you just before you make contact. Do you have the small dime
mirrors stuck on your factory mirrors? They should help.
