    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.

    I also have the heatshield brand windshield sunshade. These are the same models that the dealerships carry. I have been using these for years, but just saw on their sight that they make them for the side windows too. CM rear side windows not listed, but they do make them. They specialize in aircraft sunshades, but make them for almost any vehicle. I park my truck in the garage, but at work and especially the desert trips the sun beats down pretty hard. These side window shades fasten with small suction cups.

    A guy I used to park next to at work had the Weathertech sun shade on his front and side windows and covering up the sides made a huge difference in his inside temps. I plan to pick them up at some point.
