Jeep Wrangler 4 door Makes my ears pop

my ears get clogged up while i'm driving? has this ever happened to any of you. Like they get popped while i drive in the jeep just as if we are taking off in an airplane..
it just started making this noise is there anything i can do to find out where the leak is..
It feels like one window is open when im driving and they are all closed..
I have an 09 Sahara Jeep Wrangler
Any advice would be a greatly appreciated?

from what i hear the freedom top is notorious for leaking. i would check all of the seals. and gaskets on the top.

Nick,

As an actual owner of a JK, I haven't experienced any issues like you describe. I have the dual top option and run the Freedom top most of the time. Mine doesn't leak or have any unusual wind noise. All I hear is the soothing sound of the mud tires humming along. I just recently completed a 3500 mile trip in mine with no issues at all. If it were me, I'd take off the freedom panels, clean and inspect the gaskets and reseat the panels. Check all you bolts holding the top on to may sure they are snug. If that doesn't do it then I would start hitting up the dealer. You may need to take the tech on a test ride so he/she can listen for the problem. My wife had a rattle in the A pillar of her Escape that took three test rides with a tech to finally track down the problem. Good luck!

There's a vent in the tailgate that is hidden by your spare tire. If your hard top is on and the vent louvers are clogged or stuck due to ice or snow, perhaps that's causing that popping feeling in your ears. The hard top is surprisingly air tight. I have heard of folks having this problem after visiting the car wash in freezing weather. Might be worth checking it out!
