It is VERY sturdy. I have tested it north of 140mph. Also it helps keep the tonneau cover tucked at higher speeds than not having a Wind Restrictor. Sans WR my cover would come untucked about 90 mph. With the WR it stayed tucked past 130 mph.

All testing was done on a closed course.

It official. UPS lost my windrestictor and now I got more headaches. Maybe I'll have one before it reaches 100 degrees in Texas! The wait continues.

Going to be honest, and I am not trying to be a smart ass, but the only way I know a way of controlling all of the wind is not to put the top down. I do think it helps some, but you still feel the wind. It probably helps someone in the back seat more than anybody. I would hate for anyone to make this purchase thinking they are stopping all the wind because that is not going to happen. These are the facts as I know them:
1. It does help some with the wind
2. It looks great with the top down
3. Looks even better from dusk on into the night with the light on
4. Looks good even when the top is up and lit up at night
5. You get a lot of compliments from folks and we all enjoy that
6. The product is well made and fits great
7. I am totally satisfied with this product and Chase &Paul at Apex for helping me thru the process.

That is it folks in a nutshell from my perspective!

I know the whole ideal of the wind restrictor is for the top to be down but man I think it is also sharp looking with the top up. Looks good.

What replacement LED Strip? That looks much brighter than mine... You are parked directly under a light with the top down and it's still visible?

Had some problems when I first installed mine in that the smaller wires pulled away from the LED board. They sent me a new LED board, I looked at both of them and they are the same one. I ordered mine through Chevy Mall before I found it here on the sponsors but it still came from the same company so I have to assume it is the same LED strip.

+1 It looks like a hologram from behind when the top is up.

Day time you don't even notice it. Night time you notice it but can still see fine, unless of course you go crazy with some huge custom graphic and have it lit up full bright all the time.
