window wind deflectors opinions needed

I have been thinking about buying these.

Side Window Air Deflectors - Jeep Grand Cherokee - Item # 82204502


Can anyone comment on the deflectors that have them.

i love them. i always leave my windows open a crack. i think the ones that just pop in are better than the ones you glue onto the door because the glue discolors the paint underneath them if you want to take them off.

I've always liked mine. I wish I could find a set that mounts in the window track. I guess they don't makem for the zJ anymore. One of my Mopar gaurds is broken..

I do not like the kind that mounts on the outside

Yea get them! I agree with Kruzin, I hate having my windows cracked and rain getting inside!
They don't look bad at all either.

You have got to be kidding!!!! You have no idea how long I looked the other night for them. All the online stores I found did not have them for ZJ's. I found old references to them but nothing presently listed so I figured they quit making them altogether for ZJ's. They even sell fronts & backs seperately too. Very cool. Thanks!!!

I just hope the light smoke matches the smoke of the mopar ones. I kinda think not though. The Mopars are pretty dark. I'll have to swap the other side too to match. At least it's one of the back ones that's broken.

IMO the ones that are applied with sticky tape to the outside of the doors are ghetto. They were one of the first things that I ripped off of my Jeep about two weeks ago after getting it home.

I hate the way they look (any of them - sorry guys that have them). They totally take away from the clean lines of the Jeep.

I don't care how functional they are. I would never put them on my rig.

You asked for opinions so please don't flame me for hatin'.
