Wind tunnel

Greetings. Does anyone know where I can see a video of a Wrangler being tested in a wind tunnel that shows wind direction over and around a Wrangler?

You might as well forgetit

The windshield angle does not promote airflow, adequet for airscoops

Their is no boundry layer at normal human speeds and a reverse scope with the opening facing the windshield, won't do any good and perhaps a tiny bit at speeds over 75 mph

Can't blame you for the idea, now snorkles, thats a different subject !!

Pretty sure wranglers are to blame for all the wind disturbance in the mid-west.

wranglers = wind disruption = tornados?

throw a brick at your jeep and see what happens... it will be the same thing as what the wind does
