windshield noise on soft top

My Wrangler is almost 3 years old and I've noticed a lot more wind noise between the windshield and soft top lately. I found that if I reach up and grab the soft top just over the mirror and pull just a little, it gets much quieter.

After thinking about it for a minute, I bought some 3/8 plastic tubing, cut two 2in pieces, slit them on one side, put them over the clamping bar, and now it is as quiet as it was new.

Good idea!
I had the TSB for "wind noise"taken care of when I first bought my Jeep...they replaced the entire plastic header with a metal one. I have some of that tubing lying around...maybe I'll throw some on and see if any more noise is quieted down...
