Sun Shade

Hi all, me and the Wifey are going to pick up our new Jeep this Friday. We special ordered a 2015 Overland 4x4 in BFG. We live in the desert so a high quality sun shade is a must. We were looking at the Weather Tech sun shades but wasn't sure which one to go with to fit with the rear view mirror, there are like 3 I think.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Re: Sun Shade

We have the Covercraft that is custom fit to the JGC and we have been very happy with it. In fact, ordered a second one today for our other vehicle.

Another vote for covercraft. I haven't gotten one for the Jeep, but we used them in our last 2 vehicles daily when we lived in Arizona. They did start to deteriorate after about 5 years in the AZ sun.

Re: Sun Shade

Yet another Covercraft here as well. My Jeep is garaged at all times when home, but at work I put the Covercraft in. It works VERY well and I highly recommend it!

Re: Sun Shade

I have a WeatherTech Tech Shade used in my 2015 Limited and am very pleased. You can tuck it up in the gap between the window and headliner and it stays put well. I ordered the size to fit the Large Sensor and it works for me.

Re: Sun Shade

The Mopar sunshade works well too

Unfortunately with my dash cam, no sunshade is going to properly fit.

Re: Sun Shade

I have the Weather Tech, and it fits perfectly. Very well made, albeit not cheap. Fast delivery as well. Mine is a 2015 and I ordered the "Large Sensor" model.

Re: Sun Shade

Weather Tech also, not cheap but very good quality so I guess that goes well along with my GC.

Re: Sun Shade

Target. Cheap, and it works well enough.


ETA: related - I noticed that a lot of heat enters through the pano sunroof. The roof cover has no insulation and on hot sunny days the heat is significant and radiates in through the cover.
