Hello everyone -

This isn't a thread about how I am pissed I haven't gotten my Bronco yet or about how I broke a tie rod arm or how I was sideswiped by a drunk...it's about something much more important...SUNSHADES!!!

Given that the Bronco windshield is so short, has anyone found a decent foldable shade that isn't too tall but is still wide enough to do some good?

Thanks!!!

I got the OEM sunshade, thinking it would be the best fit. For whatever reason there is still plenty of gap, especially around the rear view mirror. With that being said, it still does a good job although I am disappointed the fit is not as good as I would have expected. I don't love the rollup kind of shades because they take up more space when not in use.

Yeah, agreed...I was hoping there's a foldable option that has a smaller footprint when closed...there's not a lot of interior room to begin with so eating up a bunch for this isn't ideal...

I have the OEM one (made by covercraft) and it's excellent. I've had the same style for all my vehicles for years and been perfectly happy.

The Mabett roll up one from amazon also fits REALLY well.... too well actually. It didn't have enough room for my dash cam, so the dash cam sat between their sunshade and the windshield and cooked it like a potato in an oven.

I have the Mabett one and it fits and stores great. It is currently hell's front porch here so I use it daily at work. When it rolls up it is tight and narrow enough that I can push it under the passenger seat on top of the lever that slides the seat forward/back, between the lever and the bottom of the seat itself, parallel with the dashboard. A passenger sitting in the seat doesn't even know it is there.

very happy with the Mabett, I store it under the back seat but have to try the above mentioned under the front seat idea too. Fits very well, does what it's supposed to do, inexpensive and has no writing or anything else on it, the way I like it. I have a bunch of their products and am happy with every single one of them. Plus the guy (or some guy working for the manufacturer) is really responsive here on the forum, always looking for input before and after items are available. I got the center console organizer, the back seat carpet covers, door handle storage, sunscreen and I'm sure I'll be getting more items from him/them.

That's a fantastic location description
