Have not installed in truck but here they are.......

The black bar was fabbed by Len and will bolt into original holes that current visor bolts into. The Rosen visor then bolts to that bar. The visor has full articulation and can even go at a 45 degree angle. It is polarized poly and is like a giant sunglass lens that you see through so the idea is you view THROUGH it, not under it.

This is very high quality stuff, ie all billet aluminum parts and over-engineered with significant attention to detail. Looks really nice.

Based on Barry's (aka bjf) skills at marketing and sales, he will be selling these as a kit for $3,000. Please PM him for all the details.

Here are some pics.......I wanted to get pics installed in the truck.......but I couldn't take the immense pressure the "D" has put on me to produce.......

Haha, how much really?

The material is likely way harder, but the visor itself looks almost like my old front ferring (front wind deflector) to my Thule roof rack...which scratched like hell any time I tried to clean it. Any idea how easily it scratches? I could see spending the $$ and being upset that it spidered to hell within a few months

They were $280 for the pair.....forgot if that included shipping. That does not include the two bars that Len made for me. You can ask him about that but you could also make them yourself out of bar stock. Len does a professional job though and does a baked on paint that looks much better than anything I could ever do.

These are the same exact visors that go into commercial jets so I can't imagine they would scratch that easily or go bad.....but I don't know for certain. I can report back in a few weeks of real world testing.

Horsey Boy, WTF......worry about getting your Rover before worrying about the lens'. Get off your horse!!!!

I'm guessing that your Thule was mounted on the outside of your vehicle, whereas John and others typically mount visors inside the passenger compartment - what was the last time you cleaned your sun visors? Also, Thule products aren't exactly "aviation grade."

Seriously though John, now that you have something nice to mount in your truck, you need to add the "this is a multi-purpose passenger vehicle" sticker, and another showing a side view of the truck with the overall height printed on it. That's what LR would do.

Jim I plan on getting a that same exact sticker you mentioned and using that glue that essentially makes it impossible to remove the sticker without completely ruining the visor and scratching it all to hell like Hoss is fearing....

Yeah, I was more just wondering why they put a film over it if it was jet-fighter grade. I really like the idea of this...it just seems like if they're wrapping in shipping maybe it scratches easily?

Let us know.

I really want these too. I was designing my own as I couldn't find something likes this that was manufactured. Now that I know these exist...I need to do it too. Thanks for sharing, and being the guinea pig on this.

When you get a chance, post some pictures of them installed!

I raised this thread from the grave but it looks like all the trucks and people that have passed on.

Just trying to see what aircraft fits the truck, if anyone knows or remembers.

I've traveled a lot of rough roads in the last 15 years and 160,000 miles
and I'm surprised mine still stay in the "UP" position when not in use.
