Window deflectors, also known as wind deflectors and side moldings, are not just an affordable cosmetic accessory that makes your truck or jeep look sleek and modern. Although they do just that, but the real purpose of window deflectors is to allow you to enjoy nature and the outdoors from the comfort of your vehicle without dealing with the physical aspect. Wind deflectors transfer rain along with other types of precipitation away from your open windows. So if it is raining you can still breathe in fresh air. This is especially clutch for us off-roaders who love to hit the trails for our next adventure regardless of weather.
How do Window Deflectors Work?
Similar to bug shields, window deflectors protect your interior (and you) from the elements by altering your truck or jeep’s aerodynamic profile. This results in an outward draft of your rig around the window deflector that pushes out rain, snow, sleet or even dirt and mud when out on the trails. Wind deflectors also keeps your windows clear of any of these elements, whether on the highway or off-road. At 4WD Supply USA, we offer a wide range of high quality window deflectors for not only your windows, but your sunroof too.
Deflectors for Your Windows
Deflectors for your windows, sometimes called side window deflectors, are typically custom fit for your truck or jeep based on the year, make and model. This ensures that you have a perfect fit so the deflectors not only look aesthetically pleasing, but also perform their purpose admirably. There are two types of deflectors for your windows; tape-on window deflectors and in-channel window deflectors.
Tape-on deflectors are exactly as they sound and use automotive tape (very strong 3M tape) and are engineered to sit on the frame of your truck or jeep’s windows. They are extremely easy to install and are custom made to fit your rig based on year, make and model as mentioned before.
Quick and Easy Installation
Superior Protection against Water Intrusion
No Contact with Actual Window
Not Easy to Remove
Often Results in Stains and/or Gunk When Removed
Not as Sleek Looking as In-Channel
In-channel deflectors are also custom fit for your truck or jeep based on the year, make and model. Rather than using automotive tape, these are mounted directly into the window channels. The installation process is a bit more complex than tape-on deflectors because the snug fit is critical which results in some extra force and bending to install them correctly. Sometimes they can break with too much force so always be careful. But if you are looking for a sleeker look, these are the way to go.
