Wind Stoppers
 
Anyone have any experience with the various wind stoppers? Best top has one with a plastic window - can you still hear the stereo? Another vender has one with black mesh - does it really work? Yes I know some will think these are wimpy, but I'm looking for a way to have my wife drive with me occassionally and she doesn't like the wind blowing her hair apart.

Simple solution, either have her cut it short or let it grow long so she can tie it back or get her a jeep hat...:banghead::banghead:

I have the bestop windjammer. It works very well for everything but heavy rain in the parking lot. I usually leave it folded down, but it is there when I need it. Summer, Fall and early Winter, I run with the bikini, tonneau and windjammer, on trips, or when rain is in the forecast, half doors, with the windows in the back. Be sure to have large trash bags in the console if you have to park it in the heavy rain...

i ran a safari/tonneau cover combo all summer long last year but was looking for a solution to the wind coming in from behind me so this year i invested in a vdp windstopper and have been very happy with it. with the windows and top up the wind is noticeably reduced. however with the top down the wind is still an issue.

I've said this before, but just so you know and don't have to send yours back like I did, If you ride with your seat reclined its not going to work well, becuase it (as you may know) mounts on the roll bar in front of the speakers, so it didn't work for me, just a heads up.

I made one out of lexan and a buch of velcro for attachment. I put it up when it rains or snows. I rock a tonneau and safari top most of the year. Ill try to grab pics later.

this falls under the "Cons" of owning a jeep and should be posted in the correct thread
