Recommendations for GC Sunshade

Who is using a good windscreen sunshade for their Grand Cherokee?
Any thoughts on what I should buy before it arrives...
OEM or Aftermarket?

Re: Recommendations for GC Sunshade

We got a Jeep sunshade from Just for Jeeps. Best sunshade I've ever had. Highly recommend.

Re: Recommendations for GC Sunshade

Yep, thats it. Although the one in the photo doesn't look quite high enough, (probability just a pic of a typical one) but it is of that type. They are a stiff material that simply concertinas up.

Re: Recommendations for GC Sunshade

I just bought a similar style one that concertina's up made from the silver reflective material from the Reject Shop for $4, and it came with a couple of side shades (that I don't bother with).

Even if it last 1 year I can get 15 years worth for that same price as the Jeep one...

Not the same thing. The Jeep ones are rigid, made to fit and do a really good job of keeping out the heat. Once you have had one of these, you'll never go back to the silver foil type again. IMO......

Not sure if you can get them in Aus... Can't recall what the freight was, but I had a few things sent over at the same time. Will check tonight.

I remember that it only took about 10 days to get it, couldn't believe it at the time. Although I think that just for jeeps freight has gone up a lot. Maybe better to use freight forwarder like My US or something...

Re: Recommendations for GC Sunshade

I ordered a pro-trim (USA) one via Amazon for my WK2 as i was told at the time the jeep ones were for WK1's and didn't fit particularly well on the wk2. This may have been wrong though.

It was $115 delivered but its great quality and fits perfectly. same as the type described above - concertina style, padded, works great.

Re: Recommendations for GC Sunshade

Yes, mine was actually for 2010, but fits pretty good. The part number on J 4 J are the same for 2010 on, so must still be the same.
