Air deflector idea..

Ive got a 14 JKU that I love to run with the freedom top panels out as much as I can. On a trip from Va. Beach to Central MD last week I noticed that the air coming off the windshield is pretty turbulent and comes crashing down off of the speaker bar right on top of my head. More annoying on long drives. Opening the rear hatch window helps a little but not much. Of course I've looked for commercially available air deflectors and haven't found anything that looks like a solid solid solution. My next step is to get some aluminum and fab up something that takes advantage of the hoops that the roof panels attach to. Anybody else come up with a solution? As I dig into this more I'll post my findings.

I find if I crack the rear windows, it smooths out the air coming in through the open roof.

I saw the Wade version but it didnt get very good reviews. Those reviews were for the soft top users though.
