Reducing wind with doors off

I really like having the doors off in the summer time, however I don't enjoy all the wind that generates in the cab area. Are there ways of cutting down the wind? I was thinking of purchasing half doors. What are some ideas or mods that you've come up with. Thanks!

Some people buy rear window piece that goes between the front and back seats... can't think of what it's called right now. Half doors are nice if you've got the full steel kind that you can't really ride with. I keep my doors and windows out for so long that when they go back on in October I feel suffocated.

I think the piece you are talking about it called a Wind Jammer

I like doors and windows off, but top on. that seems to do nice for me. But my hair is short, so maybe that's why.

It is a fairly ridiculous thread. If taking the doors off makes it too windy inside the jeep, then put them back on.

Drive with the windshield down for a week, when you put it back up it will seem calm inside.

Try the put the door back on, and roll the window up or down the the desired amount of wind mod.

On a side note please rip up and throw away your man card.

My roommate had a set of aftermarket half doors that had a steel frame and fabric. They were light and easy to put on and could be stored in the cargo area. Might be an option to throw on when on the highway.

Like this...
Bestop 53039-15 - Bestop® Half Doors for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

He had the upper plastic windows also since he left his full doors off all summer.

We have those soft doors, they are very easy to put on and take off. The other side of that is, when traveling down the road, they can be noisy.

I like to put the top down and leave the full doors on. This way i have the option of closing the windows. It may sounds funny, but it helps when the night temp drops a lot and you have all highway driving!
