opinion on moon visors

lookin for people's opinion on moon visors (if thats what they are called, a visor on the ext that extends maybe couple inches over the windshield). I had one on my bronco II and liked it...it was Lund, is that the main manufactuer? and i got pics on my car domain of my truck, people let me know you think itll look good and also if Lund is the best?

Thanks guys, your opinions are the best.

I like them, but I don't think it would look good on your truck. They have their place and it's not on a Level II!

100% no drilling a minimum of 4 holes in the TOP of the roof is just asking for trouble...

the lund sunvisor II is a little smaller, more curvy and cleaner, and mounts inside your door frame, so there are no exterior holes. if you decide to go wtih one, thats the one i would use.

I had one professionally put on......and now its gone.

i lost it going 70.....so basically it was nothing but an expensive boomerang that left large holes in my roof. I wasn't impressed with it. POS IMO....but it looked good. it just didnt look good fluttering in the air lol

maybe they needed to use larger bolts.....

.........you know what. now that i think about it..........they would have to remove it to replace a windshield right? ok, well lets take that into consideration. ive had 5 windshields in that truck. so them taking it off and on and off and on im SURE had something to do with it. so take that into consideration.
