Custom windshield sunshade in stock?

Hey everybody,

We're going out of town in about two weeks, and I meant to order one of those nice CoverCraft custom sunshades for the WK2 before we went. Well...I went to order one now and I'm worried it won't get here in time since most places have a 2 week turnaround time.

Does anyone know somewhere that they might have them in stock for the WK2? Do some dealers stock them?

Re: Custom windshield sunshade in stock?

Not a CoverCraft (which I am not familiar with), but this one is in-stock and has to be just as nice as any of the top ones on the market. I have one and love it...

Here is a little "review" I posted on it earlier.

Re: Custom windshield sunshade in stock?

Ordered, thanks! Should be here in plenty of time for our trip.

BTW, that is a CoverCraft windshield shade. I have had one on every car I've owned since the 90s. Great product.

Good deal, glad you were able to snag one!

Re: Custom windshield sunshade in stock?

Yeah they only had 2 left in stock!

I've never tinted windows in a car before, but I've always thought about it. I'm considering getting the front windows tinted on the Jeep only because its an opportunity to see how I like it without the financial outlay of tinting a whole car.

I don't know about the windshield though. How does the tint interact with all those black dots around the rearview mirror, etc?

I have zero issues with tint and the black dots on the w/s. the installer did an awesome job. This is the only pic I have at the moment. With the light 78% film it's like it's not there at all, but rejects almost half the heat and all the UV. Doesn't effect night time driving at all.

Just wondering if that windshield tint is legal in Texas?

Nope, it's not. But the percentage that Mongoose had done is so light that it isn't noticeable from a color perspective however still cuts down the glare as he claims at least.

Any issues with driving with polarized sunglasses (like, does the tint look blotchy like the sunroof does)?
