Hello everyone yesterday I placed my order for a JLUR so now it’s the waiting game. Currently I’m our GC we have our daughter car seat behind the passenger seat. If I was to do the same when I get the JLUR will the wind affect my daughter with the top down?. What do other people recommend?

I have my daughter behind my seat (she is 2 years old) and has worked out great. The sun usually stays out of her eyes as well a little bit more.

Keep in mind wind noise isn't good for adult hearing, and it's especially not good for children's hearing. Depending on the drive lengths and speeds, it can cause gradual hearing damage. If you're rolling with doors off or windows down, be mindful, and consider hearing protection. Take it from someone with tinnitus, avoid hearing damage whenever possible. Cruising around town is one thing, but 70+ on the highway for an hour is a different story.

Thanks for the heads up. I would never take the doors off with my daughter in the Jeep. I’ll keep her windows up too

I have 2 boys (4 1/2 & 2), and they love riding around with the top off. Well, at least they did when the weather wasn't minus-infinity with 800 mph windgusts. #ThanksWinter

As other commenters said, may be a bit nicer to keep the windows up to avoid excessive wind at higher speeds. But the Jeep has a moderate air pocket inside when the top is off and windows up, which prevents too much direct wind in the backseat passengers' faces.
