All real jeeps have 4WD Its only on the recent generation, the JKs that 2WD is offered.

Your boat tail will not do anything if there is no air flow attachment. Jeeps have such a high windshield angle, that the air doesn't re-attach to the roof of your jeep, and just whooshes upward into the sky, as you can tell during the rain .

Have you ever thought of a moon/sun visor? they go on top of the roof at the windshield, and the air hits the visor, and re-directs the air to the top. AndLund moon/sun visors have a patented air flow design for improved aerodynamics. Although what makes it patented I don't know, but it definitely isn't solid and lets air through.

It's mounted on what i *think* is a ZJ. I of course, wouldn't pay the money for one, and I'd just home brew my own. Might not look the best but, it would0 save quite a bit of cash. I'd extend it more rearward, it looks to not redirect the air enough.

I'd make one if I were you, only i wouldn't make it permanent. I'd make the most out of your boat-tail.

Yea.. I drive a Jeep and I'm on a fuel economy site, but you just wouldn't understand... "It's a Jeep thing!" *Jeep Wave*
