Today I installed an AVS sun roof wind deflector. It easily attaches and looks innocuous. The big surprise came when I drove the truck. Not only was open sun roof wind noise reduced by at least 70%, but the perceived tow mirror wind noise was reduced as well! I don't know how roof wind noise amelioration also reduced side mirror turbulence, but I assure you, it did.

To prove the noise reduction, I took my son along and I drove at a constant 105 mph where the wind noise is so intense, you could name the 'storm wind' outside the truck. I closed my eyes and my son dropped a pin. I could actually hear the pin drop hitting the rug, bounce once and come to rest on his sneaker. Amazing!

You closed your eyes at 105?
