2 Door/Soft Top/Windows down question

4837 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  TrueNorth
Just curious, soft top is fully intact, and you roll drivers window down, what is bad about this? Around 30mph, I am getting exorbitant amounts of wind through the cab. Is this damaging my soft top support system, or soft top in general? I like to ride with windows down, but I feel I am doing damage to soft top somehow, plus wind is too much to enjoy. (Weather has been nice too, light breeze, no hard wind)

Anyone use window sill guards, make a difference? Anyone else experience this?

i don't think i had excessive amounts of wind through the cab. Do you have the door sills on and the soft top latched in to them? I could see where that could create more wind coming in between the door and the vertical roll bar.

But then again, if the weather is nice enough, just drop the top down :)

Nope, soft top completely up, not using sunrider. Was trying to find another jeep on road doing it, but couldn't, so figured it was bad. It also looks as the side widows are about to completely suck in when riding with door windows down

As I stated above, you can lower your driver's window with no issue.

I have a hartop,, but I get tons of wind blown right into my face and ear with the window down.

Im 6-2 , and have the seat all the way back,, I did get the Window deflectors and it helped a little , not alot.

Thanks for that valuable input, but the OP is concerned about the integrity of his soft top with the amount of wind coming in. Wear a kerchief and you hairdo will be fine. :D

Ahh, yes, I see what's going on here. It's called, "Driving a Jeep."

What you're describing is what occurs as a consequence of having essentially flat walls for doors and a glorified tent for a roof. Wait'll you start driving around without doors. You'll adapt. :thumb:

Got it. Was just wondering if anyone figured out way to play with the zippers, or configure back zippers to allow venting, but still have them for the most part intact.

I do like the way the jeep looks with the doors out. Going to have to make my next investment a cab cover or tarp.

On that, anyone have a picture of what a jeep looks like with the front windows down, and that back window getting sucked in? I can't really picture it myself, but I can get a glimpse from my side view mirrors.
