If all my windows are closed then it sounds that way, it will go away once the windows are rolled down a bit.

This post shows he got it at Walmart (Reese brand).

I think it could be this one. It is also available at
Amazon Amazon
listed under the Highland name, but a bit more expensive.

The next post states he added the Jeep sticker. He may have to come in and state where he got it.

Tossing around the idea of buying cross bars and judging from the pics posted, low profile cross bars would definitely not work?

I have Yakima whispbars, they are probably the lowest profile bars you can get. I have the front bars in the front, between the 2 front mounting points, and the other in the back, between the rear two mounting points. Mysky is uneffected, the wind deflector pops up and sits right under, but not touching the front bar. The rear bar is a non issue.

When a I have my cargo basket on, I need to put a small spacer under the mounting bracket of the basket to "lift" the basket slightly higher. By doing this it gives me enough clearance to use the powered mysky. I can also use the vent feature no problem. I cannot take the panels off with the basket on.

I only use the basket when needed, if it was to keep the basket on permanently then it would severely limit mysky usage.

Edit, I guess I should add that the reason my bars are so far apart is that I have a cargo rack with an extension, it goes the whole length of the roof. From the windshield and right back to the antenna.

SemperFi, do you have any pictures showing the front power open in relation to the location of front/back bars? Maybe a profile view, and maybe an overhead view like if youre looking at it from the front clip. Please and thank you!

So basically as long as you run low-profile crossbars far enough back they will clear the MySky? The rack/basket will just sit farther back on the roof because of this, which isn't a big deal to me.
