I definitely recommend the purchase of the wind deflector . I would recommend two people for the install to get it lined up correctly . It definitely cuts down on the wind noise and I believe helps a bit with the Miledge ! For the price it is a must have for sure !
With the wind deflector mounted, there is no discernible increase in wind noise when carrying the Skycamp. I was so pleased! Our gas mileage is within 1 mpg of normal, also. We did have trouble with the deflector shifting a couple of times, but once we got really serious about tightening the bolts it stayed in place fine.
The wind deflector works great! It really helps to keep the wind noise down and it doesn't feel like I am driving around with a box on the top of my Jeep.
This one definitely cuts down on the wind under the Skycamp and the Rails. I haven't scientifically tested the "Gas Savings" but logic says better aerodynamics will do that. Happy Overall!
The deflector took a bit of time to install and it didn’t come with much instructions at the time. Subsequently there has been videos posted which are helpful.
It helped with wind noise as well as fuel economy. The fuel consumption after installation of the wind deflector was nearly the same as it was before mounting the iKamper so I was very pleased with the results.
