I'm very impressed with this fairing. It completely eliminated the sound of the roof rack on the highway. The factory roof rack used to make noise at anything over 80km/h and now it is quiet all the way up to 140km/h. I like the finished look it gives the rack and like that it works with the Mopar rack. I doubt it will help my mileage at all but I didn't buy it for that. For what my expectations were this works perfectly.

purchased the fairing a couple weeks ago and finally got it on my car. not only does it make your roof rack look super cool, but it puts a nice finishing touch on the entire roofrack. It cuts down on the noise a lot so its nice not to have to blast the music any loader then you minght normally. Id rate it a 5/5 but i havent gotten to see if it increases gas mileage yet. Hope this help.


I just installed on a Toyota Tacoma and looks cool. However the 4 clips needed to attach it to the bars significantly limit what and where I can place attachments to my rack. I cannot fit a pad on my rack to set my surfboards or paddleboards on now without adjustments to the pad (like cutting out sections of the pad). If this thing doesn't reduce the noise level while driving it's coming off and was a waste of money.
