Default Window deflectors club vs. quad cab

Now I have a club cab, back doors dont open but have a back seat. I have been looking to get a full 4-piece set of window deflectors, but i only come across 4 piece sets for "quad cabs." Then I started thinking, you guys think theres any difference?

yeah, the proper set for the club cab trucks actual has a taper on the vent shade to allow for the rear windows to be open. The quad cab visors are the same distance from the window the whole way down and will probably interfere with you opening the rear windows.

wouldn't they be tapered for our 4 door windows too though? They open the same way so I don't see the difference...

edit: after looking again, I can see how they would be different as our rear windows go right to the edge of the door

Club is just an ext cab. Quad is Ext cab with 4 doors.

I have been trying to find some vent visors for my rear windows, so far not found any that will allow me to open the rear window.... although I have not been looking extremely hard im sure there are some out there some where... probly expensive.

I have them on my front doors but don't really care for the tapered look on the rear.

I too did not like the deflectors for the rear windows. I went with the Weather Tech deflectors for the front doors. Really like the flush look. The have a narrow beveled edge that fits between the glass and the weatherstripping. Do not stick on/out from the edge of the door. Been on nearly 9 years with no problems.

Yeah, I've seen the rear window ones that flare out and I didn't really care for them because of how bulky they are. I just did what most do and got the ones for the front windows only.
