Did the door trim (52" Bar) - that got rid of 99% of the whistle, how about the turbulence it makes across the top? Using Fishbone bracket, puts the top of the light real close to the top of the roof - thoughts?

I wrapped the back of mine with carbon fiber vinyl from 3M and modded the mount to be as close to the windshield as possible. It is 100% silent.

FYI this is a new option also (plasitc wind defuser for light bars)

Black duct tape covering the bottom 4 fins. Zero noise.
