Bestop 2-piece soft doors

Hey guys,

Quick question. I bought the Bestop 2-piece soft doors and so far they are working pretty well. Unfortunately, whenever I drive above about 45 MPH and have the windows zipped up, the wind catches in between the top half of the door and the frame and shakes pretty badly, making me think that the doors could pop out of the locks or they would become damaged after a while.

This only happens with the front two doors though, does anyone have any ideas on how I can limit the wind and hopefully minimize the noise too?

Take them off and bend the window section in towards the Jeep. Helps a little. Just don't do this while they are on the hinges or you will damage the bushings. Since they are soft doors you really can't do anything about it at highway speeds > 60 or less if its windy.

Pretty typical on any soft door uppers. Had with my OEM doors on the YJ and with the Bestop replacements.
