I spoke to a roof expert 2 weeks ago and he told me he can fabricate anything he wants out of plexi-glass. He said he could make a roof deflector any size just by having a model in which. I have the 45.5 inch. I guess just add 3m tape and it would work? I would suggest checking with local sunroof shops to see if they can do the same
I ordered what may have been the last available 45 inch models from the place in the UK. It is not the same one that is pictured in this thread. This one is a different design and does not fit well. I am trying make work with small plastic risers, 3M tape, and automotive weather stripping glue because I've spent $150 at this point but save your money if you haven't ordered one yet.
I find it funny we cant find a 45-46 inch deflector out there. Too many SUV's on this planet/
It's even funnier that Mopar doesn't have an OEM one for us!
Who wouldn't buy it?
I would like to get one eventually. I think I read somewhere that your warranty would be voided if you did some sort of aftermarket parts to the skyslider.
I wouldn't be surprised if the deflector helped a bunch and maybe even improve mpgs ever so slightly.

I just bought a 2009 Jeep Liberty with the sky slider and read all 3 pages to find a resolution for the noise issue. Yes I was one of those that only drove it in town and did not notice how bad it was until I got on the highway and interstate. I love the Jeep and especially the sky slider just not the noise it makes.
Anyways I looked on 4x4direct and nothing there for wind deflectors. Amazon has a 41 inch that one person says will work for the slider because he did in on his 2010 but I did not want to take the chance of it not working for mine plus be out the $80.00 so I opted to try the weather-stripping option because seemed to be a quick and inexpensive fix. It WORKED!!
I only did the front - I bought a roll of 3/8 (6/16) x 3/4 it was all they had (no 7/16x3/4) but it worked PERFECT!!! One thing I wanted to add was that when I was installing the weather-stripping I noticed how well the 3/4 fit perfect in a pocket that is already there, as if it was meant for it.. MOPAR did you forget something??
I hope others read all 3 pages of this forum and find a solution that works... I think the thickness can be adjusted based on how bad the gap is but the 3/4 width is perfect no matter what.
I will continue to look for a wind deflector because I still think it needs one.
My wife has an '08 Liberty and is about finished with the wind noise also. Went on eBay and found a wind deflector for $18. Even if it doesn't fit and I can't return it it's well worth the try. I'll repost when I get it mounted.
Fitted Mopar wind deflector part number K82211961 obtained from our local jeep dealer here in england for my wife's KK. It came off once but was refitted with screen adhesive in addition to the 2 fixings supplied!!. Has reduced the noise a fair amount, could not believe how noisy it was, when we went on a short test drive did not get over 50 mpg so did not notice. The KK is rare here in the uk - only about 118 registered in total. The part seems to have been deleted from the jeep.co.uk website but have found it here http://www.variava-shop.com/product/...Roof_K82211961
