I want to order these for our Ascent and am looking for some feedback.
How are they holding up with ice and snow conditions?
Can they be installed by me with medium mechanic ability?
We need these and have had them on every car.
Any other feedback is appreciated.

Thanks

  • How are they holding up with ice and snow conditions?
    Like new. They also have held up to the heat of off-roading in three of this country's four deserts. They were ideal for keeping the car cooler as well. I simply cracked the window a couple of inches (which you can't see through them) to let the car vent out some heat.

  • Can they be installed by me with medium mechanic ability?
    Yes. Follow the surface prep instructions, and heat gun instructions to the letter. Watch the placement of the clips. Get it positioned right the first time (otherwise, the adhesive strip won't stick as well when you pull it up and try again).

  • Any other feedback is appreciated.
    Not really. I really like them. They attach with adhesive strips and clips.

Oh yeah, durability, forgot that part. As most here know, I off road like crazy. I have banged mine with brush, numerous times, and all is good.

They're probably good if you're not too tall. :ROFLMAO:
(Mine were installed at the dealer before purchase and they refused to take them off)

I'm 6'6" and I find them constantly in my direct sightline creating a weird interruption of my visual judgement. I always have to duck to look under them. Also, we've had snow here in Calgary already and they do NOT defrost/thaw so they keep snow and ice built up on them which makes my comments from above compounded, lol.

I'm definitely going to take them off ASAP.
