I'm not certain, though. I bet Phil could chime in with some sage advice. I'd say it's worth starting a new thread in the aero forum (plus that's the only forum Phil reads). I'm betting you guys won't be the last Jeepers to mull over this idea.
There isn't. It does look cool in the rain though. The windshield really needs to be bypassed
