Front runner wind deflector

Post by pgreeff » 04 Jun 2018 09:56

I installed a second hand roof rack over the weekend so I finally have some extra packing space.

I was warned that it vibrates in the wind, but my word, did I get a fright when it started. I searched on the net and found that I can solve this problem by adding a wind deflector or by attaching aluminium strips to the slats to stop resonance. I'd like to start with the wind deflector to see if it solves the problem. I believe it is a Frontrunner so if you have a spare wind deflector lying around I'd be interested. Otherwise, if you know where I can purchase one in Centurion or Midstream area please let me know.

Thank you JP

Someone was kind enough to donate a Frontrunner wind deflector.

Problem solved!

4x4Megaworld in Edenvale also generously offered me a wind deflector, no cost. Apparently they have a whole pile of them. But this one was quite a bit closer.
