Sunshade recommendations?
 
Time for a sunshade for my WK2. Anyone have any recommendations? I've got a 2014 by the way (not sure if this would make any difference).

My wife bought one from OReilly's for hers. Extra large I believe, I think it was $8 or so, it actually works pretty well for being a cheapo.

I got these over five years ago at Costco and have used them just about everyday, they are still in great shape with no holes at all. Its been so long I don't recall the name brand, but I like the design. (you give them a twist and they curl up neatly for storage) These are probably a tad to small for the W2K but they work.

I have one that folds and is silver or so, but I would get the one that dulos mentioned. Easier to store whereas the one I have takes up a bunch of space. Well, enough so that it always seems to be in the way when I need to fold the seats down, put something in the back etc.

Sunshade

Do you have a pic of this Mopar one installed? I see its not originally made for the WK2 but says it fits. Specifically I wonder about the auto high beam eye below the review mirror.

I got one from car cover usa, it's not cheap costed me 47.99 + shipping. I got after reading about here. It's very well build and also works as a thermal layer. I would recommend if you are okay with the price!

I got the same. I believe it's called UVS100 or something like that. Fit is perfect for my 2011, however I've heard that some of the 14's have had fit problems with the larger rear view mirror mount on the Overlands. Just FYI

I also have the one from Mopar that says JEEP. It was designed and fit my WK (2005) perfectly. It fits my WK2 (2012) but I have to fold down the sun visors to hold it in place. I'm about the only one that uses a sunshade around here though. 86 degrees today. I always use it unless it's overcast.

+1 for this shade. We take the Overland down to Lake Havasu frequently in the summer and this shade keeps the truck at least 20 degrees cooler. Only problem is the size as it doesn't fold in half. It does fit under the back seat if I slide it in from either side door. I had the Costco one before as well. It was compact but doesn't block out the sun like this shade. Overall great quality.
