    So I'm sitting here in the parking lot about to go to class and I put my windshield shade up, the reflective one... And a thought popped into my head, do they make these for the side windows?? Every time I park somewhere and use the windshield shade, it is almost useless because the sun comes in from the side of my truck... It would be easy to make, just make them in the shape of a window and put 3 holes in them so suction cups can fit there to adhere it to the window... Is there anything like this?

    Did you ever find any specific to the Tacoma?

    I'm looking for a custom fit one for the side windows. Will probably buy a pair of large shades to see if I can bend the flexible metal to the exact shape of the window.

    Anybody? I've searched but I can't find them for the 2nd gen Tacoma's front side windows.
    Looking for the ones that provide shade but still see-through.

    Sounds like you are describing window tint....

    Just buy a cheap reflective one like you have for the windshield and cut it into pieces so it fits the side windows. and glue some suction cups to it or something.
