I just wanted to write a thread review for a 45inch sunroof wind deflector I installed to quiet the noise of my sky slider since my Kk is my daily driver and the route I take has speeds in excess of 80 miles an hour which was abusing my slider. I ordered the item from the UK since I could not find one big enough in the U.S. It cost me $113.00 shipped. So far it serves the purpose of protecting my slider from strong winds picking up the front corners but I see it puts more wind in the middle section, I don't know if it will cause any issues.
I am getting about 18mpg now, before I think it was mid 17's so yes on the mpg so far. I still need to get the TSB for the hesitation though and I think that is hurting my mpg.
Please keep an eye on the MPG for me. Not sure if the TSB changed my mileage. If so, not enough for me to drastically notice. I have a programmer, cold air intake, and exhaust so that changes everything.
I can try to measure it but I pretty much opened up the slider and used the factory pop up wind deflector as my guide and put it within an inch of that
Thanks. I was thinking of that too after looking at the pics. We drove ours at 70mph the other day, and it really didnt make much noise till side wind hit us as the weather was getting rough here in Charleston Sunday.
But, anything to avoid all the headaches others have felt over this slider roof.
Hello all, I have been looking at the forums here for a few weeks now. I just picked up my very first Jeep! I have always been a truck guy but wanted to see what a Jeep was like. So far I LOVE it. I picked up a 2008 Jeep Liberty a few weeks ago. Mine also has the sky slider in it and wondered about deflecting the wind noise. I just ordered one of these wind deflectors today. Hope it does the trick. It sure looks like it will.
