Windshield Shade

I really need to get a shade for my front window my truck sits in the sun at work and its got to be pushing 120 degrees. My problem all the ones I see seem to be to small. Question is who has one that fits and where did you get it I would prefer one that's camo or has something to do with hunting. Thanks

I have one that is only the reflective type but it fits great and I got it at Advanced Auto Parts, They have different sizes there.

they usually say on the back of the packages what size vehicles that specific size will work with. I've got a silver reflective one, the idea being that it'll reflect the suns rays and not absorb them. A camo one would still suck up the heat. If I forget to use mine at work and park in certain spots, the seat (dark gray leather) just seems to radiate heat into my back for quite some time on the drive home.
I think mine came from walmart or target.

They make them with designs on one side and reflective on the other I just can't find the size I need.

I got mine at walmart. It's an over sized one. It fits good. It's just the silver one but it works great.

^^ that's what I did too!

In the summer, I back into my space so the truck faces the afternoon sun, shut down, install the shade behind the windshield and drop my 4 windows down about 1-1.5". It's still warmer in the truck than outside, but not as hot as when I forget to drop the windows.

Have you Googled oversized shades or checked ebay?

Yep I can find the silver ones but the camo ones I find or only 58" where I think our windshield are 67". I may have to get the silver one but I wanted something a little more stylish.
