Mine works well so far, just make sure you don't block the pop up wind screen with it. the sky slider is one of those things that was too good to be true. I am so afraid to use it in fear it will break and cost me more money than I have! Good luck with your purchase!
My experience is that the visor blocks the wind that causes the noise and bends the skyslider tips back causing leaks and strain. As far as I can tell gas mileage is the same and it does it's job. I am actually wondering if I should remove the factory pop up visor now. Just make sure you follow the proper directions to strip the wax before sticking the 3m tape it it will cause whistles from the gaps. Good luck and I hope it work for you as well as it does me.
I went to order this deflector off the link you provided from the UK, but I noticed that it requests a choice between 2 sizes with 38.5in being the largest, but when I measured the width of my Sky roof it was closer to 41in. what deflector can I buy to quiet this wind noise down?!?! I've been to the local dealer twice with no improvement or help. I can't believe Jeep hasn't come out with a deflector made for this sliding canvas roof. help!
I was kind of surprised that Jeep did not have anything also. That's strange that that place in the UK does not have the 45" one any longer. But might be worth a call to ask. I'm waiting for warmer weather to come around to install mine. Other than seeing Youtube videos with some people adding weatherstripping under the front section to reduce the wind noise I have not seen anything else. I also have not tried that. But let us know if you find anything else out there.
Maybe they discontinued the 45 inch model? Call them and ask because the 45 inch fits perfect and I don't believe there are many alternatives to that one I have found
This was an email I received from the company...
"Thank you for your email.
Unfortunately, we are struggling to receive these deflectors back in from the manufacturer.
It is unlikely that we will be supplying these again, because of this.
Is there anything else that you were interested in?"
Just an FYI, I contacted the vendor listed above regarding the 45" wind deflector. The email response was that they no longer carry one that size. I also looked at the Ebay store for the same company and the 45" is listed as not available until February 2014...
I anyone locates the 45" model, please post it; I am very interested in this as a solution to the wind noise.
