I have noticed significant wind turbulance between the door frame and the side view mirrors when the windows are down and it gets worse when the freedom tops are off.

I created a small cardboard version and taped it on, and it made a huge difference. It would be great if there were some nice colored lexan ones that can be double sided tape attarached. They don't have to be to big to quiet the air. I have used small air wings on motorcycles for years to help with ait flow.

Just a thouguht.

How about some measurements and pics? Should be easy to mock up in cad and 3d print

I have noticed a trend on some newer cars with little fins either on the top of the mirror or around the A-pillar (referred to as "vortex generators"). I wonder if these would make any noticeable difference.

I made a couple of wind wings for my old JK. They worked really good and kept the wind from buffeting my ears. It's better in the JL though.
