your thoughts: Exterior sun shade.

Thinkin of building an exterior sun shade like on big rigs and old trucks.
Anyone ever done/seen this done on a GC?
I think it would be a slick addition but Im still unsure.

I want to do one like the old school adjustable ones.
If I have to, maybe one of the newer plastic ones with lights on em.

whats your thoughts?

Don't forget to add portholes while you're at it. On the other hand, it's your Jeep, do as you wish.

Put one on my Mazda truck. Big pain in the b*tt. Not worth the hassle and didn't block the sun.

Save your money and put it in the gas tank.
