The soft top slap?

This is my first jeep so perhaps its normal, But at about 75 on the interstate the soft top slaps on the passenger side on the speaker bar. The one behind the front seats? Was wondering if this is normal or do i need one of those top props for the 4 doors?. Thanks .

Mine doesn't make a sound on the highway. I'd check the passenger side to make sure it's fastened down properly. Make sure that the plastic u-shaped piece at the end of the crossbar (over your head) is properly seated on top of the frame above the windows. Compare it to the driver's side.

I had that in my TJ. The only thing I could figure is that it was due to the fact I ran in pseudo-safari mode and the sail flaps got stretched out. I use a Clover Patch Convert-a-top to prevent that now.

Yes, I would check and make sure everything is fastened down securely...I don't get this at all, with or without the side and rear windows onor off.
