    Morning all, happy Monday.

    I have a rather silly issue, but it's something that impacts my daily driving.

    The sun visor / vanity mirror on my '17 Pro has the extender to block additional sunlight, but it's not effective for someone of my height. I'm wondering if anyone has any knowledge of other Toyota vehicles (with full slide) which may be directly compatible with the 4Runner.

    Here's what I have (representation):

    What I want is for the fixed visor to move horizontally (slide) along the rod.

    I would prefer not to add any attachments and am OK paying to replace the full assembly as long as it's effective.

    I don't have an answer for a visor, but have you considered tinting the strip across the top? I have mine done and I love it.

    Good point - my issue, however, is when the visor is against the driver's side window. Usually I can manage with the visor against windshield or my sunglasses take care of it.

    Have you looked to see if the visors out of the 3rd gen Tacoma will mount there? They would slide along the rail on mine.

    That's definitely a vehicle that came to mind, but I'm hoping someone on here could answer the compatibility question. I doubt the mounts for these things are universal

    I’m wanting to know the same. I don’t quite understand why Toyota has such different interior designs with same year vehicles and similar outer body designs for the 4Runner and Tacoma. I hate that flimsy plastic extension……useless!

    I did tint the windshield with a top band, but the sliding visor is for when it is positioned at the side window; one like the 2019 Taco.

    Did anyone find a replacement for these? Those plastic extensions are so damn useless and stupid.

    Did the same. 5' only. Looks bad ass now combined with window tints and deflectors

    Also have a drop down tinted visor from Amazon - Bell automotive Clip on. Cool. I don't have to pull the car visor down anyone. Obscures vision

    My 2012’ Sequoia has the type of visor you are asking for, I think. the whole visor slides on the mounting rod.

    You might try some salvage yards in your area and see if you can find one.

    Subscribing. Hope someone finally has an answer. One of the only things I miss about the JGC was the visor that slides on the rail
