The wind noise coming from my roof rack is bugging the nuts outta me! I'm taking the thing off tomorrow.

Roof racks are known for that :9lame::p they're awesome on trail (if you're not busting through tons of trees) but on the daily driver they're awful.

From what I hear it's a smittybilt rack. I barely use it. Its been used more as a brush guard than a rack

I'm gonna keep it in the attic till I need it. Driving to work with it on sucks though. I didn't think it would have been that bad

speaking of wind noise everytime I start getting up to around 50+ mph my soft top sounds like the velcro is coming apart above my head, then comes the flapping on my speaker box on my roll bar haha MAN I LOVE MY JEEP! :punk:

Wind noise comes with all Jeeps (except maybe GC etc.) even, to a certain extent, hardtops. It's the price of admission to the Jeep Club.
