    Does anybody out there use a cab cover? I don't have a garage for my truck so she sits in the weather all year. (Only at night, though. I park in a deck every day at work, so no long hours in the sun.)

    In Alabama we don't get many terribly cold mornings, but ocassionally there will be frost on my windshield/windows/mirrors and it's annoying. I don't want to drag a cover on and off of the entire truck, but covering the windows would be nice.

    I want something like what's pictured below. I would prefer the smaller one that just covers the windows, but there doesn't seem to be much out there and what I've found is pretty pricey. (The cover pictured over the Tacoma below, for example, is over $200 from that site.)

    Anybody own one? Know where to find one? Think I'm a big baby for complaining about a few cold nights here in the south?

    Bumping this to the top again... Had my first frosty morning and I remembered how annoying it is...

    If anybody knows where I can find a cover like the one pictured on the F250 above, I'd be very appreciative. I'll even take suggestions about how to make one myself. I really only care about covering the windshield and maybe the mirrors.

    Seriously, I grew up with all our vehicles parked outside and frost all winter long. This is what we did. Works great.
