Do any of you Challenger owners have the wind deflectors for driver's and passenger's windows fitted. How do they perform as far as wind noise and keeping out rain? The latter both when parked and travelling.

Thanks in anticipation,
Camper

Don't own a Challenger, but I've had them on most vehicles, including my Honda & Delica.

Little wind noise, not much.
The ones on the Honda are low profile, and they let rain in on the rear pillar.
The Delica units are excellent ( wider flare ).

Hi Camper - I had one on my old Disco - worked a treat at both keeping wind noise down and rain etc out (not mud unfortunately, which it redirected straight into the driver's face!!)

As I now have a Challenger (same as yours by the look) I'd be interested in what you find out.

I'm in SA too (Happy Valley) where abouts are you?

Gooday. I have a 1998 Challenger with wind deflectors both sides. No wind noise to speak of, and you can drive with the windows down in light/medium rain.

However the rain can blow in if the window is completely down when parked. I usually keep the window down only as far as the bottom of the wind deflector.

Does this help?

Thanks for including your image, Dave. Looks like an impressive rig. Flag makes a jaunty impression apart from the safety aspect. Where was the photo taken?

Hi Camper. Pic taken at Stockton Beach, NSW. The safety flag is mandatory in NSW for beach work.

Ciao

Have 98 challenger with driver side wind deflector, no extra noise to speak of, can have the window a few inches open without any rain getting in, though it doesn't rain much here in Port Hedland.

Thanks Cookie,
Biggest problem is when it rains and I have left the window down a bit the window electrics get a bit damp to say the least.
Not sure how many times they will take a swim.
Thanks again,
Camper
