I just went with a Dashskin. Made an executive decision to spend a little more to get original look. Thx
My '05 dash is still like new..... I wanted the cover to (1), keep the sun off. (2), the cover does not create heat in the cab, during the summer days. (3), no reflection.

But... to keep heat & sun out of the interior, I bought 8 years ago, a "sun shade"... but it lays on the outside of the windshield. It reflects the sun, and keeps the windshield from getting real hot.
It reduces the interior heat by MORE than 30 degrees! It's called a "Sun Shade to keep the snow from attaching to the glass". It rolls up nice and neat inside a bag ( as shown)
Costs around $25 bucks.

I was lazy about a sun shade = cracked dash. I have my boat in the garage so Tahoe is out in the Texas heat. I like the exterior fit of your shade vs interior not sot great fit that I have. Mikez71, sorry didn't mean to over take your thread, but your thread help me-so thank you!

The exterior shade has sizes to fit a car, or an suv..... or a full-size truck.
I promise.... your interior temp will drop !!
I also have the Weathertech window visors, and crack it open an inch to release the heat.
Where I live ( West Palm)..... The Sun is the same as in Cabo San Lucas!! Hot-Hot-Hot..
Also, lucky for me, I can park my Yukon inside my garage.

Samples from dash designs.com

brushed suede, sedona suede, dashtex, velour

I ordered brushed suede.

The velour is best at glare reduction, but viewing directly can glisten like carpet, same with the dashtex material.
