Rear Seatbelt Noise

When I drive my Jeep with the top off, the rear seat belts make a lot of flapping noise, especially at highway speeds.

Oddly, the rear passenger side one seems to flap more.

Anyone else notice this or have a solution?

Thanks for the physics lesson.

I was just looking for a way to fix it that wouldn't preclude actually using the rear seatbelts when necessary.

I tried buckling them but that seemed to make the problem worse. Velcro straps seems like and excellent idea though and that's what I was looking for.

welcome to the nuthouse ejmct

++++++++ for velcro straps

the flapping noise used to drive me crazy but i got over it eventually. owning a jeep tends to make you tune out a lot of noise.

and has already been mentioned, don't be afraid to ask questions, no matter how much you get ribbed.

Yeah, see.........just having some fun. We all get ribbed at some point in time, yours just came early..........

Don't be afraid to ask any questions. I will go back into my cave, and be quiet, at least for a couple of minutes.......

I just ignore the noise, but Velcro straps work well as others have said.

The best way I have found to stop the noise is to put a cooler, preferably filled with Miller Lite, in the back of the jeep and THEN strap the seatbelt to keep it from sliding

Just take out the seatbelts altogether, it gets rid of the noise permanently.

And thats illegal! If theres no back seat you don't need the belts. But if you have a seat you need a seat belt for that seat.

I agree that it is "probably" illegal to remove your seatbelts if you still have the rear seat installed (although I'm sure it varies state-to-state), however I meant remove the rear seat as well. However, once you start modifying your Jeep you are fairly likely to do something that is considered illegal, if not in your area than in another area you might happen to drive through. My only point is that if there is a modification you are thinking about you shouldn't let its legal status stop you as almost every upgrade is illegal somewhere.
