    I have the RH with some of their accessories and I love it. No wind noise. I just raised the seat and look over the front bar. I am short and I have no problem seeing.

    I heard that both cages makes your automatic lights not come on since it blocks it not sure how true this is but was curious if others have ran into this problem?

    I did see someone mention that they made a circular cut out on the Evo sport cage for the sensor.

    EDIT: Note - something to watch for if you are running a hardtop and looking at the RH kit: Be sure to not overtighten the knuckles on the top crossbar. I did and it pinched the windshield frame just enough that it caused my freedom tops to leak air. It was so bad I had to use black Gorilla Tape to cut the wind from getting in. Pissed me off so much I took the damn top off & now only run the soft top. (Wish I would have done that from the beginning anyways.)

    I added a rock hard cage recently and seem to have the issue you describe. The freedom top panels donít quite fit any more and it looks like the top cage bar may be bowing the windshield slightly. Did you figure out a solution (besides switching to the soft top)?

    Nope, I never did. Pisser isn't it? I think once it's bowed that's it. I even tried loosening the knuckles but that didn't work either. I ended up applying black Gorilla tape over the edges of the windshield frame & top to keep my sanity. Looked stupid but it worked.

    I'd take a really accurate measurement of the top of the frame somewhere and make sure you don't pinch it any.As long as the knuckles of the windshield bar are tight on the factory roll bar you should be good. If it does leak I guess that would be a good excuse for a nice soft top!

    Iím a little confused I have a rock hard cage with a hard top and have no problems, I had to cut some of the freedom panels on the inside where it was hitting the knuckle but thatís all and you canít even see it as the knuckle covers it.

    Iím thinking I might try shimming one or both of the collars on the upper cross bar, adding a little length, and see if that helps.

    Thankfully I donít live in a place with a lot of rain or snow, but I do want my hardtop not to leak and whistle.

    Dammmm. Wish I would have seen this post sooner. Finished up my RH install last night and have a little wind noise in the drivers side . Guess Iíll try to loosen and adjust if possible. As far as ease of install not too bad, letís just say it was good the kids werenít around to pick up all the FU:&/Ďs. Lol. I would do the Rh again. IMG_0143.JPG

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
