Default Wind sound

Ever since I put the hard top back on, I noticed that I hear more wind noise then I remember from last year. Is there anything I can do to the seals? Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Your thoughts.

ben,

Haven't heard any complaints about wind noise with the hard tops so my first instinct is to refer you to your local dealer to make sure all is good.
If you can hear wind there may be a chance you might get leaks - so I would get it looked at.

Let me know via PM if you need any help.

If it's coming from the top of the windshield, you couldn't over tighened it bolts on the sound bar. Other than that, I would def take it back to the dealer to get it checked out.

I have experienced the same sensation as you. I find cross winds create the most wind sound, have even had passengers double check their windows, lol. For myself, as long as the weather isn't getting in, I turn up the radio. :)

Bigger tires work great for drowning out little wind noises and rattles... ;-)

So took the jeep to the dealer and they replaced the seals of the windshield. No hassle no fuss. They agreed there was a problem. Problem solved.
