Flipping window shades in TJ

Ok. I feel like a dork. I tried swapping my shades yesterday but noted that they don't fold up out of the way in the same way. Am I missing something? Did I possibly do something wrong ( or not do something)?

Thanks,

I am lost...why did you swap them to begin with? Maybe an obvious solution is to swap them back?

I pulled the rod out of the side of the visor and flipped the visor itself. Pretty much what you end up with is the rods stay on the same side of the jeep that they came from and the visors go from driver to pass, and vise versa. Hope this helps.

It hides the ugly warning stickers on the visors by facing them forward when they are pushed up.

Thanks for the response. So the rods just pull out of the visors and you swap them?


Thanks,

If you keep your eyes on the road and traffic you won't see the stickers. Personally I just ignore them in any vehicle I drive.

I agree. Not to mention those ugly stickers tend to have some useful information.
