I have the same issue, but had the header replaced,
and even had the (newish) windshield resealed. Still have what I consider to be excessive wind noise.
Has anybody tried to put weatherstripping on the seam where the roof connects to the frame? How about weatherstripping the windshield?

|bigjerm646||Made my appointment for Wednesday. They got to make sure that I don't already have a metal header ('09). And if not I am getting one. It sounds like I dont.|

|LAXADAISICAL616||For some reason the dealer is asking for $400, no clue why. I'm going to call them again and discuss it. If all else fails I might just buy the part and install it myself|

Update: My header part came in earlier than expected (dealer called yesterday) and I made an appointment right away. I waited there from 1pm until 4 pm, and the guy came out and handed me my keys saying "you're all set"
I thought to myself..."okay...we'll see about that"
Well, the excessive wind noise is GONE...
Where it used to start was between 15-20 mph and of course all the way up to highway speeds...Now it's much quieter than I could have hoped for...perfect!
If you have wind noise that seems more than "normal" and you own a 2007 and up soft top...take it in and refer to TSB 23-010-09 Rev.A and they should take care of it. I'm a happy Jeeper...

Just brought mine in today for the TSB 23-010-09 RevA and they determined it needed the service and ordered the new part. It should be in by next week! I'm psyched!
Just a note: I am the 2nd owner of the Jeep and there were no questions about ownership at all. The vehicle is still under factory warranty though, and I purchased the extended warranty for it as well.
I thought it was a good move since this was a new"body style/engine" year model (2007)

|jk'n||It's not too late for the extended warranty but I know I always like to include it in the closing costs of the loan. I did do that on my jeep as a new purchase. I extended it from 3-36 to 7-100. It was an after market warranty, not the Chrysler.|

Your transfer case problem was covered under the original 3 year 36,000 mile warranty which is transferable.
I had a problem with the transfer case linkage too. Please see this thread for more information.
I now keep three spares in my glove box for those times when I wheeling way out in the middle of no-where.

I did, it was repaired for free as part of my "Lifetime Warranty"..... I need to look into that and see what it is all about, why do I have it on my '09 but it wasn't available on the '10.......... seems weird.
Anyway, do you need a copy of this Technical Service Bulletin from somewhere? Where can I get one?

|Always JK'n||Bought it through CarMax, and my 30 day warranty is still valid there. Should I take it there or back to a Jeep dealer?|

One follow up question: If I'm not the original owner, does this still apply to me?

Mine came with the Hard Top when I bought it, but I told the Dealer I wanted it swapped with a Soft Top instead. When it came time for the TSB Repair at my Local Dealer, I had to show my Sales Receipt, to prove that my Purchasing Dealer had in fact installed it, before they would approve the Repair for Free.
Best of Luck!

|jk'n||I would hope if the top is a mopar, that they would stand behind it. Probably depends on what is wrong with it.|

|saharaman09||I purchased an 08 mopar soft top on ebay. Does anyone know if dealers will honor TSB's on parts not originally purchased with the vehicle? Thanks!|

Give this TSB # (Technical Service Bulletin) to your Service Department Advisor. They should fix it for FREE!
23-010-09 Rev A - Wind-Noise
2007-2009 Jeep Wrangler JK's
Part Numbers Replaced:
68049276AB HEADER-FOLDING TOP
68003640AB STAYPAD-FOLDING TOP
I just had mine replaced about a month ago. The JK's came with a Plastic Header that will warp over time (even new...), and you'll hear wind like crazy. The TSB replaces the Plastic Header with a Metal Header. Quiet as a mouse now!
Best of Luck!

Wind Noise ? for '07 with soft top
Noticed that all the wind noise in my new JK is coming from the top of the windshield, and it seems to be a bit excessive. Anyone else having this problem? I'm not sure how to remedy this, but it does seem that the soft top's seal isn't wonderful...
