    With spring arriving, I am finding the desire to get a windshield sunshade to keep the sun off the black leather. I moved the truck yesterday and it was a bit toasty. I have seen a number of different ones on Amazon and real truck but I wanted to ask the Tundra people what they are using and like. I have seen the weather tech online but it is $60. The one I had for my first gen was something from Walmart. I just want to make sure I have something that fits and serves its purpose.

    I have the one that rolls up from Toyota, fits perfectly, no complaints. I have a flat fold up one in one of my other cars and that one is much easier to open and close up. The biggest issue is where to store it. I roll mine up and shove it under the back seat. It's out of the way for the most part but sticks out just a bit.

    I've had great success w covercraft folding covers. Always perfect fit and does a great job keeping the heat out. Check them out.

    x2 on this. I had one for my last car, and it was one of the first things I bought after I got my truck. They are pricey for a sunshade, but they are very well made and fit nicely. It's the UVS100.

    I also have this. Seems to work good. A sunshade is a sunshade. I just wanted one that was a perfect clean fit which is why I purchased this.

    I purchased a Covercraft folding cover, easy to put up and stores under the rear seat. High quality materials and they have a few different colors to choose from, I went with the ICE color which almost matches the Cement color on my truck.
