    How in the world do some hands see out of their windshield with such big, low hanging sun visors ? Looks like they cover nearly the whole windshield.

    When your butt is sitting against the floor, you still can see as far up as the non big rigger crowd. Of course you need really long arms to be able to reach the shifter that's rubbing against the roof.

    They need to make an air screw motor type adjustment for them, they look neat but also look like a pain in the ### for traffic lights and such.

    There you are, hurry up and get a patent. lol
    While traffic is a pain, I run some steep grades when out on the road, and have found them to be a pain there at times too, maybe not so bad for those that like to sit on the floor and look through the windshield. lol

    I don’t care for that shifter hitting the roof but I do like my big visor and all you Gotta do is pull up far enough to see the reflection off your hood for the traffic light !!

    I do a lot more mountain driving than I do city driving, I don't think that reflection is going to help when I an needing my windshield. lol

    It really is not to bad if you get a lowrider air seat as long as you are not right up on the light you can see it fine
