    The sun is relentless :bananadead: and I need something to prop up into the windshield during the day.

    Is anyone happy with their sun shield for the Tundra? What brand/model are you using?

    I was initially ready to buy covercraft UVS100 but read that the Tundra version has excessive gaps near the pillars.:help:

    I like the circular one because I can fold them up and put them in the pocket on the back of the passenger seat. And they're 12 bucks. Best ones I've ever had.

    I got the fronted window tinted with clear ceramic tint. Blocks out most of the heat and the uv rays.

    Living in,"Hell's Waiting room" in Texas it is important to get one which is insulated.It will help lower the interior temp. besides reflecting the light.
    I went with weathertech brand and like it a lot.

    Heatshield has always worked well for us and, if you want, you can get them for all the windows.

    I bought this Heatshield https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BFHEVB0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    But I found that it's a pain to roll it up to put away so I switched to Covercraft. Just fold it a few times and it's done and it's flat so easier to put away. That's my 2 cents.

    Black seems to be counter-productive. I looks like it would attract heat instead of shielding/reflecting it away.
    Maybe the material is such that it does not absorb the heat. What is your experience regarding shielding heat?
    I like how it looks.

    This is my Weathertech rolled up. I could roll it tighter if I needed to but it fits perfectly behind or under the seat in my CM like this. Very happy with it.20180718_151349.jpg 20180718_151324.jpg

    Well, look what the cat dragged in while I was upgrading to LEDs. I have the driver's side 'I'm old, help me get in' handle installed as well and there are no issues at all. Stupid easy to put in the windshield. This is one I'll definitely use.

    I recently purchased the Covercraft sunshade to fit the Tundra off of Amazon $55. I specifically ordered the UV11023SV but when I received it, it was the UVS100 which is their universal one. It had some really bad gaps between the pillars and the shade making it not even worth putting it up. It didn't even fit my wifes Jeep Cherokee. I actually got the company to exchange it for a WeatherTech. Funny thing is that when I filed the return claim for it they wanted me to pay $11 shipping back to them through UPS as well as a restock fee but didn't charge me shipping when I bought it. If you buy off of Amazon just be weary that you may not get the one that you ordered.
