Got mine installed the other, finally took it out today down the highway and man its loud. Do you think my lights are causing the noise. I also found if you crack the rear windows the sound does go way down. Its going to be nice when out on the trails with the top back.

Gets a bit loud around 65+ speed. Crack the rear window and the noise goes way down. I think my issue is the lights. Very pleasant with the top back at the 65 mph, its only loud with the top closed on my rig. Maybe someone can chime in. So far I am happen with this.

Love my Sunrider. Quality addition that let's you easily enjoy that open air feeling when you can't go completely topless. All it takes is about 3 seconds and you can open or close at a stop sign or traffic light.

When I do remove it, the Sunrider always reinstalls and lines up perfectly with no issues. After initial installation, with the help from a 2nd pair of hands, it literally takes 3-5 minutes to remove or install.

Sunrider usage tip: When Sunrider is open, roll down both back windows half way to reduce wind flow in in the front seats. Works like magic.

Maybe @Bestop can chime in with a discount for say a small group buy...
They just had a $50 off rebate which ended on the 22nd. Bestop told me most likely they will have a rebate in April when I called but no dates.

I find my Sunrider to be less noisy than the stock freedom panels when closed.

Light bars can be a source of noise, since they can disrupt the flow of air over/across the Sunrider.

10% Off sale now...go to their website

Well I had been waiting on a discount so order placed, still kinda pricy when you add in taxes but having it over the freedom panels in the summer will be a blessing.

Im hoping I don’t have the issues some have with those Z clips :LOL:

They aren't that bad. I swapped out my door rails several times when dealing with a leak issue (not the fault of the Sunrider) back when I first installed. Once you have everything laid out for install, you should be able to quickly figure out the Z-clips and get them inserted properly. Definitely use a small piece of tape to hold the Z-clip in place after you get it placed properly. And, as mentioned above, build everything off the Jeep and attach the Z-clips before fully attaching the door rails.
