I had a 2004 TJ with a hard top and bought a Besttop soft top to put on during the spring through fall. The hard top was naturally quieter to ride in, but the soft top wasn't really too bad. I just figured it was because it was a jeep with a rag top!
Fast forward to my 2008 JK with factory soft top. First thing I noticed were these small rubber pieces that didn't really fit well, attached to the door at the top right were the windshield meets the soft top. These things kept pulling up, as they were only put on the door by some sticky solution. Pretty cheap if you ask me. I'm not sure if they are the problem, but...
When I get to about 55 mph, the sound of the wind is just loud in the cabin. Ridiculous really, especially since it is a factory top. It's louder than my old TJ after market soft top.
Anyone else have this problem and a fix? Does it have something to do with these small rubber pieces on the doors?
