So an update...
We've had several days over 100 degrees here (like 50+ in a row). Reached as high as 108, so I can only imagine what the temps inside were right next to the black roof.
The pipe insulation I used from Home Depot got.. droopy.. very flexible in the heat, and the center section towards the front of the rear windows (2 door) was drooping down and could be seen in the window. The double sided tape (I left the backing on) was getting stuck to the plastic and actually making a sort of clicking/clanking noise (I thought it was my roof at first).

So.. just check to see if this added insulation is drooping and stuff it back up in there :)

I tried this today. Removed the tape and just went in the channel beside the middle two sections. I’m abt to drive 3hrs to the beach I’ll report back.

I'd vote go rubber.

My foam didn't hold up to the Texas heat (we had a ton of days above 100) and kept getting bendy and falling down around the rear sections :)

I'll replace it with the rubber one soon.

I gave this a try today, and even ran the insulation all the way to the rear cap. Measured before and after with the decibel meter on my watch. Sad to say, it made zero impact at any speed. So I am guessing if it improved your noise issues, then you may have a bad seal somewhere.

I assume that you did the measurement at the ear level. Right?

I tried the foam thing and it helped a little but not much on mine… this stupid wooden shim I shoved in the window eliminates about 75% or more of the wind noise though. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤯

Check and make sure that triangle shaped seal isn’t warped and wavy like mine. My dealer said it would be under warranty I just don’t want them to touch my windshield recall yet so I’m going to wait a little bit.

Seems to be plausible. I gave it a try a while back and I couldn't tell any difference. I'm also not experiencing some of the wind noise problems that others are noting. First drive in my Bronco gave me the impression that it was really quiet for a removable top vehicle compared to half a dozen others that I've had over the years. I do have some hearing damage which might have something to do with it, maybe I'm not hearing the really high pitch noises that are causing problems. I can listen to music on level 6 at 80mph and still hear it okay, I can have a conversation with someone in the passenger seat no problem, but sometimes have a hard time hearing what my kids are saying in the back (which admittedly is a problem even at home lol).

I have started another thread with my experience with the wind noise issue HERE
