    Well my Tacoma Access Cab has the worst wind blast I've yet to experience in any car. With the Windows down anything over 25mph is like a leaf blower to the ear, even with the slider open.


    Do rain guard help in anyway to solve this issue?

    I have the Weathertec ones and I think they help a lot.

    Chrome don't get you home
    You need the big ones for wind diversion.
    My rain ones do nothing for wind

    do you open or close the rear sliding window? I noticed myself if you open the center window the wind blast is greatly reduced

    I open it. I can actually reach without taking my eyes of the road. However I feel it does little.

    I'd never consider an FJ as long as there are Tacomas, 4runners and Wranglers.

    I really wish Toyota would make something to compete with the Wrangler however.
