AVS quality has hit the shitter. Granted I've never owned this brand but my cheapo ebay ones looked from a quality standpoint. This is just absurd. I emailed AVS with no responce yet. I heard there customer service also has gone down hill. They feel cheap, flimsy. The cut from the factory is so poor it's unreal. Jagged edges everywhere, olg glue blotches in spots, dings and small scratches brand new out of the package. I don't even feel like a refund is acceptable at this point.

Hard to tell from the photos, but did you remove the clear protective plastic film from the outside part of the visors?

You can't see all the uneven edges? And yes, I did.

Amazon reviews have gotten worse as of late. Most complaints mirror mine.

This gives a clearer picture of exactly how mine arrived. I didn't really notice it until after I installed them.

The correct external ventshade for 1996-2002 Toyota 4Runner is https://a.co/d/fC7hSGD

I have this installed on my 2WD, been solid for years and I rely on them daily

The in-channel version is Auto Ventshade AVS 194751 https://a.co/d/eapn1qw

From folks I wheel with, the weathertech 82087 in-channel are the best at $110+ a set

They aren't falling off (yet), but the cut/molding craftsmanship is ****ing garbage.

I can see the uneven edges. What I couldn’t see is if the plastic film was removed, hence my question. Why did you install them if the quality was not to your liking?

Honestly at first glance everything looked fine. It didn't occur to me to give them a thorough look-at since their reputation has always been good. I assumed (I should never assume) they were all build/cut the same in the factory.

I wrote AVS a kindly worded letter expressing my dissapointment. With any luck I'll hear back.

interesting....as i got a set about a year and half...maybe two ago that I ordered for a different 4runner but never put on but put them on my current one last fall... and have no complaints. fit is fine, no gouges, no uneven pattern to them. maybe I got some old stock b4 the quality went down hill that you all are talking about. About 3 years ago I got a set of AVS for a dodge 3500...and no complaints on them either.

sad to hear if they have gone down hill as my grandson is about to order some for his jeep cherokee
