Abnormal-JK Just removed mine... Soooo much better view! Seems like a new rude from the inside!!! Never ever used them anyway!

RonnieD Get the top of your windshield tinted. Cost about $35.

lindel I use them as a place to store registration and insurance cards, and a place to put the garage remote. Other than that, they've never moved.

chevymad Noticed this myself. Definately think its because of how far back you sit from the windsheild. Doesn't bother me much with the sun straight on, but they're even more useless when trying to block sun coming in the side. Just too short to do any good.

You should be wearing quality sunglasses while driving, I've been wearing ray-bans for over 30 years, so maybe I don't notice that the visors are actually doing what they are designed to do.. On second thought, are you one of those stupid ghetto drivers that sit real low and lean back as far as possible? If so you shouldn't be driving anything but a go-cart in your mommies back yard. ( pardon my sarcasm )

ohiok5 good so its not just me lol

JeepandMud My '00 has them and I agree, completely useless. Ok so I'm short and they do nothing for me. Pop, new weekend project lol. Luckily I have transition glasses so I get my sunglasses anyways

Fireaxe my 00 tj didn't have them...didn't notice really.....wear shades when driving a lot.
05 lj has them.....sure they work, but can't say I'd go out of my way to buy them now that I've seen both ways.
but I guess glad I have them.

nectoxicdragon Don't have any issue with mine in the 06 tj with factory high backs, but I'm 6'7"... I also have to recline the seat slightly and have it all the way back for sufficient arm and leg room.
04-26-2013 08:09 AM
TJDave Probably due to DC lowering the seat position on the newer 03+ TJ's and doing nothing to the sun visors.

Just a guess. They still do a great job of being in the way when I want to swap tops!

jp2611 Mine in my '04 works for the little I need it....if it is nice enough for the sun to be an issue...Top is OFF and I am wearing sunglasses....IDK why but it SEEMS to me that with top open/ off sun in windshield is not as bad....maybe eyes are more "adjusted" since it is bright inside the Jeep.....

sunvisor is useless

are all model wrangler sunvisors as useless as my o4 tj? it may be the distance from it to the seats or maybe its up higher than my other cars, but it serves no use to me in bright sunlight.
