I didn't give it too much thought unitl yesterday, when it was nearly 90 degrees here in Louisiana. lol,lol, but where do you find a sun shade for an
F J? If my measuements are correct, they are 56 x 16? I got to find some-
thing soon. I've called everywhere! Any help would be greatly apprecitated!
Picked up my F J this past Saturday, Black Cherry, 2 Wheel Drive with most of the options and B package. I love it! But my only gripe is no storage? Or at least I haven't found it yet? But really cool SUV! No complaints in my 4 days of ownership. :)

There was thread posted by someone here that referred to this site:
http://www.canvasworks.com/main.html and then use the Order Heat Shield link.

I haven't ordered one yet but it's on my to do list (still waiting for the VIN # on the FJ on order) -- so sadly I can't speak to their quality first hand but they are supposed to be sized/cut to fit

hope that helps

I had to special order one from the dealer, which took about 2 days. If you go to the dealer you bought the FJ from you should get a discount on parts and accessories. Mine was about $20 with the discount and worth every penny. Good quality and fits perfectly.

Go to Kmart or Wall Mart or Target etc... Get a big sunshade the ones for suv's and cut it to fit!
All you need to look for is the apropriate width.

I ordered one a week ago. It showed up in 2 days, as promised and fits great.

Our experience has been that they are of the highest quality and will stand up to the desert sun for years.

Good Stuff!

I just got one of these too, really nice. Perfect fit, is more $$ than a cut-to-fit one, but I feel it is worth it.

Received my "HeatShield" windshield reflector yesterday. Definitely worth the money! Fits perfect! Really reduces the heat inside FJ! It gets extremely hot here in Louisiana!

Hi Vickiw, welcome from Ohio

This thread is pretty old and the commenters in it may no longer be active on the site.

The last poster ($7) is talking about cutting down a "universal" sunshade made of Reflectix.
If you want one that is already fitted check on these, though they are more expensive.

Note: Aug '19, Some of the search tools use cookies, you may have to re-run the search. Windshield is the same for all models/years.
WeatherTech $50
CarId $32-$67
The Original [Amazon] $40

Where did you buy or what brand? We've been looking everywhere. PLEASE?

I use Covercraft on my sports car, and more recently got one for the FJ. It blocks heat, is a great fit, and is easy to handle and fold quickly, since it's rigid. The 'con' is that it's not cheap.

CoverCraft FJ Cruiser Sun Shade
