I'm looking to get a new Jeep in the next year(hopefully), upgrading to a newer model, probably a 2005-2006. However the main thing that scared me away from my '97 was the ridiculous noise level. With a hard top and full doors the wind and engine noise was almost deafening on the freeway. Talking on the phone was impossible, even having a conversation with the person in the passenger seat was difficult. It didn't help that there were small holes forming in the floor and the rocker panels. I can't afford to have a "play" vehicle so this is kind of a deal breaker. I often find myself traveling across the state, with other people, which is inconvenient for them because of how loud it is. I really don't like the body style of the new JKs, but it seems like they are much quieter than the TJs, and it makes me wanna save up a bit longer so I can get one. So if you could, post your year of Jeep, any sound-dampening mods you've done, and how noisy it is at freeway speeds.
