I would.
I see the light's white turning more yellow (than it is now) with time.

But, I already pointed that out.
Good level/symmetric mounting.
It could very well go unnoticed as an add on....until they light up.
The camera makes them look more off white than they do in person, standing there looking at them they match much better. But not perfect, which I agree would look more "factory".

To get them level I used a strip of painters tap and lined it up across the top of the two parking sensors, then I used the third ridge in the top bumper trim step piece to make sure they were exact on both sides.

Followed up by double checking with my tape about 4 times before I did any cutting.

Not this guy, I'm only funding this truck with sales from selling the parts I removed from the truck I traded. And their gone so no more "extra" truck money coming in. The bigger more expensive projects (aux fuel tank, airlift bags) are going to require saving up.

That's why while I had the money I tried to buy the best that I could afford so it lasts.

Awesome dually!!! My two cents worth: Black lights front, white lights rear are perfect because of where you mounted them in relationship with the adjoining colors. If rears yellow, you can mask the bumper and light off and color-match paint to the truck. Under the hood you can do whatever you like to make it pop because you don't see under the hood when driving. The brake caliper covers painted look tacky to me and will be the focal point of anybody looking at your truck, instead of looking at your truck, because of how much they stick out! Every truck I have owned gets the inner rear fender wells painted flat black (especially duallys) , all wheels pulled off and everything gets painted flat black including suspension and brake parts to mainly make it all disappear to highlight your bitchin' wheels. Then you only see the shiny circular rotors as well as not having to figure out how to clean the painted caliper covers of dirt, brake dust, and heat damage. Then the same flat black treatment to front and rear hitches, frame rails, and exhaust to make them subtly disappear. All my duallys have immediately gotten front and rear mud flaps and full stainless running boards, for easy access to roof to wash and bed to use, as well as keeping it clean!!!! It also begins to resemble a bigger truck. I paint everything with hi-temp BBQ flat flat black! First mudhole you hit with a unprotected dually wipes out both sides, usually right after you wash it! My wife and I do a lot of camping with our LQ horse trailer and a number of people with other duallys want to know why mine seems cleaner than theirs. All my years in the car business; detail, detail, detail! Stand back and look at your vehicle and see what you don't like, then fix it.

I am considering adding these deflectors to my truck. Anyone have any feedback - good or bad? I like these because they are bigger and allow more air in to cycle through. However, my biggest concern is that they are attached with an adhesive and I just wonder if people have trouble with them sliding down or popping off.

The ones that fit in the window panel, I imagine they would stay in place longer, but I like the bigger ones better, so just looking for feedback.

I had a similar product on my powerstroke and never had any issues with them. The adhesive you use is very strong

Its really just preference, before the in channel vent came out they were all stick on. When I bought my new truck last summer the in channel vents were the newest latest and greatest so that's what I went with and really like how low profile they are.

As long as you clean the area real well the adhesive will stay no problem.
