Running front panels only

How's the noise level with the doors on and just front panels, not the rear, of the freedom top? I'm taking a ride this weekend, but it's 2.5 hours of interstate/hwy away. I do have a spiderwebshade that helps reduce the noise. recommendations?

I did just that the last time we went wheeling. Took it on the highway for about 2 hours. Surprisingly, it wasn't that loud at all.

Just make sure you put those rear tabs up on the freedom panels if you're running without the rear!

Its nice..I do it all the time...But always carry a small towel to fold up and stick under the two panels in the middle...or every bump you hit...you'll get a smacking noise above your head...gets really annoying..

You're supposed to fold down those tabs and screw the panels back down.

Yes and if you dont fold the tabs on rear of panels down you risk putting the rear big round sound bar screws through the panels

Who cares? Turn the radio up

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.
