    Hello all, I live in the DFW area and need a sun shade before the beginning of summer. I am looking for recommendations and money isn’t a limiting factor. Thank you for your time!

    I’ve bought a cheapo one @ target about 2 years ago... GREAT fit... I’ve been looking to buy another one since the fit is so good but I havent had luck... foldable ones are the good ones, not the thin ones imo..

    I've used Covercraft sunshades in my last 2 trucks. I think they work great.

    Here is what I have.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M8KLLIW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I love it. It should last for years. Amazon says that it doesn't fit, but it does. I have a 2018 TRD Pro and despite what one of the reviews says, I haven't had any trouble getting it in place. Don't worry about the go-pro mount. This goes right in front of it.

    Go to an RV store and buy that reflective silver stuff they put in their windows and custom cut it to fit your ENTIRE window. My dad has this in his RV, lives in it full time in PHX, AZ and we put this on all West and Southern facing windows. The amount of heat that is reflected is incredible. Even in the middle of the day, there was a noticeable difference. The only drawback is that its rather bulky when rolled or folded for storage. When my Taco arrives, this is what I’m doing.

    I like my weather tech. Custom fit from the factory and am going on my second year with it and is still pristine. :D :thumbsup:

    I'm a big fan of the HeatShield sunshade, too.

    I bought one of these to use on a temporary basis:



    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/tacoma-sun-shade-toyota-trucks-logo.389183/


    It worked okay.....looked okay.


    I just gave it to a buddy yesterday who just bought a new '18 Taco.

    I no longer need one after getting ceramic tint done. Even the versions that aren't very dark kill off the UV rays and tame the heat very nicely. I am very pleased with the tint.....super upgrade.

    I had a Intro Tech for my '16 Tacoma and when I bought my '18 honda CR-V I bought one for it. This one comes with a case for the sunshade unlike Cover King that charges extra for the case.

    https://www.autoanything.com/driving-accessories/60A5833A0A0.aspx

    And they are custom designed for each individual make/model. I had the covercraft uvs in my 2015 Chevy Colorado and it was o.k. but I prefer Intro Tech hands down.

    It folds down to a single panel. If someone doesn't post a pic by this afternoon then I will when I go out to lunch.
