    I had a SnugTop Rebel installed last month and I love it. The only major issue I'm running into is dirt, dust, splashback, etc collecting on the rear window. I've looked around for a rear wind deflector but haven't found one for sale in the US.

    Has anyone found a proper solution to this issue?

    Have you looked into getting a accordion gasket? They go from the cab window to the topper window and seal the area up pretty well. A lot of people will use them in older trucks where they remove both windows and just make a big pass through.

    Subd! But I think he’s asking about the rear window of the topper? Or rear window of the truck cab? Can be read both ways...

    Both are Stock - built correct from the start.
    I know your problem. I run toppers on all my trucks. I haven't seen a deflector in the market. Years ago I picked up one off a 1st gen S-10 Blazer from the yard which fit well on the rear of the topper of my 1st gen Tacoma. It worked better than nothing. I think the recycle yard is your only option.

    You could pull one off of a 3rd gen 4runner.

    You have to make sure it doesn't interfere with the opening of the rear window. When I notice it's dirty I just use the windshield squeegee brush at the gas station when I fill up.

    Shell back glass is always dirty. I would love a solution. I have a Leer XQ, and they just came out with a new XQ Sport model with a built in deflector. Unfortunately I don't believe it can be added later, and the cost of the new shell is crazy expensive. I would think the aftermarket could come up with a solution.
