50 inch light bar

I've just started my research on LED light bars for my 4 door JK. I'm concerned about the noise they may make at highway speeds. Would a curved light bar reduce the noise and does anyone have pictures of what they look like on JKs. I only found one picture so far. Thank you for any help you can provide.

I installed a straight 50" on our '12 - caulking around the fins helps some (with whistling noise), but general wind noise/buffeting is the price of admission for a full-width light bar. I doubt that a curved bar is going to reduce that much, as it will still be in the path of air being forced over the windshield & over the top. We just turn the radio up...

I put one on mine and with a soft top it sounded like a 747 was about to land on top of me.

I have 40" mud grapplers... I don't think a 50 will bother me when I get one

2012 JKU, stock for now, but gathering parts
