Hey all - I'm new to this site. Picked up a '15 High Altitude a couple days ago, and previously owned a '12 GC Laredo X.
In my previous cars, I had custom-fit sunshades from VanStyle, similar to this:
I like those because they are designed to fit specific cars, and cover the whole window, plus the rear side windows and the hatch window as well. I hate the roll-up or suction-cup sunshades, because they don't cover the whole window, and generally look like crap.
The main brands are Sonniboy (commonly sold by Windesa), and VanStyle. VanStyle doesn't make shades for the WK2, but it looks like Sonniboy might. On the Windesa site, they show compatibility for "Jeep Grand Cherokee 2010-2013,"
but in an email, a representative of the company says that they don't make a shade kit for the 2015. Now, here I'm making an assumption that even though the 2014 WK2 got a styling refresh, the window size & shape hasn't changed, so the kit marketed for 2010-2013 should work, right?
On Windesa's site and their eBay listings
, they show a WK2 GC, and the compatible vehicles list shows "Laredo E, Laredo X" models. Those are WK2-only models, right?
My only hesitation is the mention of the 2010-2013 model years. Did Europe get the WK2 in 2010-2013, or was it still the WK? Here's another eBay listing
that shows "Grand Cherokee IV" as a WK, though they don't have a photo of any JGC.
Long story short, the Windesa part number is son-01-78290
, and I'm just trying to get confirmation if these will fit a WK2 Jeep, or if I'm just out of luck. I searched the forum before I posted this question, but didn't see any mention. I am a Jeep newbie, but I'm not new to modding cars or forums or the internet.
