    Not your typical question for this forum, but I am going semi crazy. I have tried a few different Walmart variety sun shades and I just cant find one that actually fits. They are either too big or fit so goofy around the visor that it lets a lot of light in. Can anyone recommend me a good one that fits?

    Go through Weathertech they make a good sunshade. I just purchased one and am very happy with it fits great.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I guess I didn't realize that our windshield was so small.

    Heat shields are made to fit your vehicle, bought one over a year ago and love it and it reduces the temp inside by 8-10 degrees..

    Covercraft is a quality product that I am happy with. This from being in 105+ degree heat.

    I'd second that, just got the heat shield and love it especially during this crazy hot weather.

    I'll also vote weather tech. Sorta pricey but the quality is second to none. Plus the reverse side is black and they claim that putting it black side up in the winter helps keep your windshield from icing. Never tried it though.

    I went to an RV store and bought their silver reflective window foam, which does the same thing, but for a whole lot less money. Plus it drops the heat even more because of the middle layer. I was able to cut it to the exact size I needed to accommodate the windshield radar and GoPro mount. I also cut a set for the front windows and all for the price of $14. I need to redo the front windows to make them a tad bigger so they fit snug on their own and the only light the gets in is the bits from the edges I cut ( which will be corrected on the next set ). The only downside is that they're bit thick, so storing them isn't convenient.

    I live in Alabama, we don't get ice or snow but for maybe 1-2 days a year so I would never really get to test that part out either.

    That's a nice design. I would have went with those without logos just to support the locals if I had known.

    +1 for CoverCraft. Nice and thick with a good fit (giggity). I am a big Weathertech supporter but I didn't like how it rolled up versus folding.
