    Trek NX Wind Noise

    So tonight was the first trip in Canvas with the new top and it was like riding in a wind tunnel with a lot of wind noise doing from where the top meets the windshield. What has been done to Canvas the past couple of weekend was a OR Fab sport cage and the Bestop Trek NX.

    Please help

    Hate to break it to you brother......it's not going to get any better......Our Jeeps are boxes in the wind and the front windshields upright angle doesn't help deflect or move the air over the top of the vehicle so we'll and i think that has alot to do with the noise we hear.......I've never really had a problem with the noise of my top.......the whistle of my 50" LED........or even the noise the wind creates while driving w/o my top or doors........it's a Jeep and I've accepted the fact that it's not going to be a quiet ride unless i ride with the hardtop on all the time......I turn up the radio a little more and drive on......

    Have you ridden in any other jeeps with a soft top on? They are louder than the hard tops but not like driving in a wind tunnel. Was it a pretty windy day? If it's super windy it can be fairly loud inside the jeep.

    I thought it was going to be that was. We had an 04 TJ with the soft top and it was not quite this noisy. Oh well it will be something to get used too. Just wanted to make sure there was not a step I missed.

    Would this make a difference? http://www.quadratec.com/products/11122_0004_07.htm

    Well, my NX doesn't make much noise. U say you installed a sport cage, did u drop the windshield when u installed it?

    Agreed. Also I think its no noisier than othef soft tops. BTW, it looks like a large space where top meets header in front windshield but that is normal

    Also, silly but did u tuck in all plastic pieces in to frame of jeep? That's would add a lot if noise

    If it was positioned correctly and held shape against strong wind force, it could in theory keep the wind from actually hitting the soft top, sorta like drafting in nascar.... but I couldn't tell you If this exact product is capable of doing just that.

    I had a trek nx and sold it cuz it was so much louder then stock twill soft top I can't speak for the new twill trek top but my trek top nx was so much louder glad to have the oem twill top back personally. Don't get me wrong it killed me to sell it I love the slant back look just don't like the design of the trek top


    I don't always wheel , but when I do I keep it tight......... Stay dirty my friends.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
