    I do have one or two, but that didn’t answer how drop visors cause slip ups.

    I think what hes saying is if something did happen, one of the others involved in the incident could bring up the low visor limited visibility situation... im still not convinced but i hear him

    Screenshot_20201101-200312_Samsung Internet.jpg I dont know how any of the drivers with a car hauler stinger set up can EVER see a light change with one of the overhead light poles. The car over the tractor hangs way down and is almost to the end of the hood. Must be as bad as any visor I've seen.

    Holler out for Cobra at the Loves/TA south of Atlanta - he has a ceramic tint that blocks all UV and heat and is maybe 15-20%.

    Skin cancer is my only concern.

    I like that too. People who have never dealt with tint at all ask things like this. Nothing wrong with that, but if you've tinted any vehicle yourself you either learned you could do it (1% of the population) or you can't (99%). If you can then you're probably doing it for a living because it pays a lot and is probably a lot better deal than driving a truck.

    I tried it once......maybe even twice......and now happily pay my guy a couple hundred every time I buy a vehicle.
