    Bought a caliraised 52" light bar and installed, love the light it throws, but the wind noise is driving me crazy! its not a whistling, its major vibrating buffeting. vibrates the heck out of the windshield and makes everything in the rearview mirror fuzzy. anyone have this issue? Any solutions besides turning up the radio?
    Thanks in advance

    I've seen this cover that goes over roof light bars. Makes them aerodynamic. Kinda expensive tho. I'll try to find the link

    my old jeep had a light bar. Howled and whistled to no end. Very annoying. I got some foam weather stripping from HDepot and stuffed it in between the cooling fins on the rear of the light bar. Trimmed the excess so it fit flush... problem solved.
