They come down about 3/8's of the way, I believe.

Not quite a half, not quite a quarter.

Then again, it also depends on the type of visor you get.

Yeah, and tint won't snap or crack when you're cleaning snow and ice off the truck.....LOL But in Tx, I don't think you have to worry about that.

I've seen those back window things and IMO they are just as useless as the back quarter window vents. I've seen 4 piece window covers around and I shake my head. Why buy the 2 covers that go on the back quarter windows? WTF!

"Its for the rain" . . . . was the answer i got from a local parts dealer. Only thing i can think of is that it would allow you to have the windows open when its raining . . . purpose for that . . IDK maybe the driver is smoking ???

I didn't have that particular model on my '96 Ranger...I had the smaller one that was like half of that hang down. I only bought it to keep the rain out when I had the rear window open and it worked. Wasn't the prettiest of things, but like I said, it worked.
