Nothing much to look at, but I cut N pasted 2 videos before and after wind noise mods. This weekend I did most of the mods that have been posted about before. Videos taken at 60mph with phone held up to the rear view mirror. I’d say 50% reduction in wind noise, what do you think?

How did you guys put the pipe insulators in the roof without taking the top off? I saw people said they just slid them in, but there was no way mine would even make it under the roof.

You would slide them in on top of the frame rails from the cargo area. I only know this since when I was putting my foam in, it came out there :ROFLMAO:

Hmm, perhaps I'll try that.

There are so many hacks for this maybe list the ones you’ve done.

For this before/after video, I did pipe insulation along the side rails. 1 inch square foam insulation along the channel on the windshield. On the roof panels themselves I put 1/4 rubber with adhesive along the fronts and backs and where the fronts overlap.

I could have been clearer. I only put 1/4 inch rubber insulation on the front panels. I did not touch the mid panel or rear shell.

Can you redirect to the post you referenced? I remember seeing but can’t seem to find.

Buy a signal meter to measure decibels, its cheap and will let you know if there is a difference or not in an actual number. Phone app might exist as well. Just make as many variables the same , before and after. Like road surface , speed , wind speed and direction ( stationary ) in relation to travel at time of recording , etc. That way its accurate to know if what you done really made a huge difference. Oh and location of mic in cabin being identical at time of recording.
