Wind noise

Lately I have been noticing excessive wind noise in my KK. It usually happens at 50+ mph all windows up. Does anyone else have this problem and any solutions to fix it?

With or without sky slider?

My wife has a 2011 Limited 70th Anniversary and it is quiet as can be. Of course, I am comparing it with my 91 XJ which always sounds like I'm in a wind tunnel.

No sky slider or sun roof. Didn't want one seeing the sky slider would make a ton of noise.

The only noise I hear is a whistle from my drivers side mirror. If I listen hard enough, I can hear some wind noise against the windshield. But that's it.

No cross bars or anything different from previously when it was quiet?

No cross bars, and windows up, door and rear hatch all closed. I'd take it to the dealer but there useless as a bag of rocks.

Now, now. There are a lot of things you can do with a bag of rocks. Dealerships, on the other hand....

It's most likely normal. Those side mirrors might make some wind noise. Wind noise ain't a problem for me... I would think every KK has a little bit of wind noise.

When I first got my '11 KK it seemed to have wind noise around the windshield. I don't even notice it now.

All mine has is the drivers side mirror whistle. When I hear it, it reminds me that I was daydreaming and forgot to turn on the radio.

The truck is literally a box, wind noise is to be expected. Not sure what you would call excessive though. I mean, I have the skyslider too and I don't notice much wind noise.

Just means the music isn't on loud enough when ya hear it. I have the sky slider, too and don't mind.
