    Okay, I'm lookin' at Vent Visors for my truck.

    I go to Amazon, and select my vehicle, and come up with this: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Auto-Ventshade-94040-Ventvisor-Deflector/dp/B000JD5UDU/ref=au_pf_pfg_s?ie=UTF8&Make=Chevrolet%7C47&Model=Silverado%201500%7C491&Year=2008%7C2008&carId=001&n=15684181&newCar=1&s=automotive&vehicleType=automotive"]Amazon.com: Auto Ventshade 94040 Ventvisor Deflector 4 Pc Set: Automotive@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31HRpojFuvL.@@AMEPARAM@@31HRpojFuvL[/ame]

    You can see it's model 94040 that's chosen.

    I go to the manufacturer's website, and come up with this: http://www.lundinternational.com/products/ventvisors-side-window-deflectors/ventvisor/

    You can see, here, it's model 94515 that's chosen.

    (Not sure what comes up, but I'm using '08 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab as a search criteria.)

    I plug "Ventvisor 94515" into Amazon, and I get back all sorts of crap.

    In the 1st link, it shows pictures that make me ASSume it'd fit, but I don't wanna go through the trouble if it does not.

    Vehicles are almost as bad as watercraft; nothin' more but money-pits with too many damned parts to add/replace. :steamed:

    I went to the manufacturers site as well and typed in
    "2008 Chevrolet 1500 LT"

    It came up with both #94040 and #94515

    #94040 is for the EXTENDED Cab

    #94515 is for the CREW Cab - YOU NEED THIS ONE according to the website.

    I'd stick with the part number the manufacturer says is correct.

    Also if you check the reviews on Amazon you will see the 4th review. The person says they do NOT fit the CREW Cab.

    Hope this helps you.

    I used Ventshade's numbers on Amazon even though they did not match with Amazon's and they fit my 2004 Chevrolet 2500.

    It did rain in your truck the other day.
    Saw it in the parking lot and even told one of the dipsticks by the door to call you on the radio because it was about to rain. Sorry dude, I should have found you myself.

    With the problems you have had in the parking lot, I cant believe you left your windows down anyway.

    LOL. Thanks! If they want in...they'll get in. That's the way I look at it.

    The trick is knowing when to stop. :wavey:

    My truck is bone stock, minus dark window tinting, a black bug deflector, black step bars, and a black diamond plate toolbox. (Oh, and a different exhaust.)

    I try to keep upgrades "functional". :)
