Limiting/Eliminating glare from interior trim

I have a 2015 Overland with the blue interior. Lately I've noticed that Florida's sunshine has been reflecting off the interior silver trim (specifically the center console cup holder/shifter area) and glaring in my face. The easy fix would be to adjust my seat so the glare doesn't hit my eyes but I've found my seat position sweet spot and don't want to adjust. Have any of the forum members had the same issues? Any fixes?

Re: Limiting/Eliminating glare from interior trim

I hate chrome on the interior of cars. The jeep has way too much. Also, the giant chrome mirrors can reflect light in your eyes as well.

The only solution I have is wrapping the trim with vinyl or something, but it would be pretty tough on the super small pieces of interior chrome.

Keep a small towel in the front seat and toss it over the console when necessary.


You may also be able to use the sun visor.

Re: Limiting/Eliminating glare from interior trim

Get some good polarized sunglasses and all the glares and reflections simply dissapear, I tried them once and never went back to regular lens, polarized is the way to go.

Re: Limiting/Eliminating glare from interior trim

Are your windows tinted/ do you have a tint strip across the front of your windshield?

Basically its the polarized sunglasses idea but for your jeep. Since youre in Florida, I would assume youve already tinted it
