Default External Sun visor ford truck 42-47

Looking for opinions on which model of external visors fits the best on a jailbar ford truck. Anyone have one on their truck? do you like it? Trying to find one to fit the split front window. Not looking for a "droopy" look. But I want to keep it low enough so that I can mount cab lights. I have a feeling their are more brands than I know of so not 100% sure what to look for in google. Also if anyone knows of a good place to buy one that would be great. I've looked at a few on google. Seems a lot are repops. Aside from looking at ebay.

Thanks in advance for any info.

All of them are kind of a PITA to mess with but I like the Dietrich the best. FoMoCo used these as accessories on some cars of the era. Dietrich made adjustable ones to fit more than one width. One of those would likely be better for fit on a pickup. Some folks like the look of the Fulton types but I'm not a fan of them. A person has to make sure they find one with all the pieces no matter what brand you choose. The center and outer clamp parts can be hard to find.
