We just received ours yesterday and installed them. Super easy installation and they look fantastic on the car. Almost like they came factory. I can't put my windows down for 3 days so that the adhesion can take hold since they are in-channel visors. But loving how they look on the car...ill check back in on Friday and let you know how it's going.

Re: Wind deflectors

Got mine installed yesterday afternoon by DH. Said it was easy. Small issue with hitting on the edge of the deflector but some shims overnight took care of that. Let them sit for 14 hours and all was good today. Hard for a daily commuter to wait 2~3 days to cure. Lovin havin deflectors again!!!,

Re: Wind deflectors

Mine are terrible. Three of the four windows won't go up. What did you do with the shims you mentioned to make it work?

Sorry for the delay. DH looked where they were bumping the deflectors and put the shims on the outside of the window moving it slightly inward so the deflector would let the window go up. Left them on over night a couple different times for front and rear rubbing on the two rear windows. Good luck

Kell.......Can you give a little more detail on how the shims were used?
What did you use for shims?
After the deflectors set, were the shims still needed or could they be removed?

Pics of shims and placement?

Any additional info would be appreciated.

Thanks much
Steve

Re: Wind deflectors

I received a email from Weathertech that front window deflectors are available and shipping for 2014 Cherokee. I ordered mine yesterday. Shipping is 5 to 7 days.

Re: Wind deflectors

And the shims were removed after their use. That would look funny to leave 'em on!
