    Im having trouble finding a quality sun shade for the Tundra. Anyone have one that is worth telling about?

    Truck spends a lot of time parked. Any help would be appreciated.

    I've been hoping to get a sun shade as well, but the problem that I've invariably encountered is that they all off-gas and leave a film on the inside of the windscreen. And we all know how much fun it is to clean that bugger.

    I use the heatshield in all my vehicles and sprung for the shields for the other windows in the new Tundra. Perfect fit and lasts for years. These roll up but most often I just fold it in half and lay it on the floor the back.

    I want to get one of these, but not sure any work with a 2018 yet due to the camera that is near the rear view mirror. I'm using one from our Sienna while I wait. Let me know if anyone finds one for 2018.

    I thought you had one???


    Edit: nevermind, you said you've used them in the past.

    The Covercraft one is 1 piece. Mine doesn't cover as well as the Heatshield one I've seen pics of, but it conveniently folds flat for easy storage. Seems like the biggest complaint on the Heatshield is storing it when its not in use.

    Thanks. Yes I've had them in past vehicles. Just not on the tundra.

    I have used a Sunshield from AUTOHEATSHIELD.COM. I've used these for a long time and with other trucks. They are custom fit for each model, fit around the rear view mirror and roll up when not in use. They also make them for side windows if needed (for those who leave their trucks outside for extended periods of time).

    Same here, I have the weather TEC shade visor and it's a pain in the rear, have to roll it and it take lots of space.
    Get the the cover craft.
