Roofing it.

I am going to purchase a roof and would like opinions. I am considering the HW black roof. How much is the noise level increased in the cab? I rode in a Teryx with the factory roof, and it definitely seemed louder. I also do not want a roof that sticks up over the cage (tree scrubbing). And while you're here....let me know how well the half windshield works if you have one.

Thanks,

Brett

I hate the stock LE roof, I like the one sleepy has...how much are they? Would like to get one. The half windshield I only use half the year, when it's hotter out I remove the windshield, I do like having the windshield though, would like the full windshield, just afraid the 100 degree days and 90% humidity here would be a killer, not to mention as you said, would increase the cab noise.

This is the one I'm running. It can be noisy when the branches scrape across it. It fits good and looks good. IMO It has eight mounting clamps and with the foam tape it comes with between the roof and the cage it does not rattle. I also run a canvas back so I would say yes mine is a little louder inside. I really like the half windshield also.

The Dirt Performance roof is 3/32" thick, diamond tread and polished is on the outside. Smooth on the inside, great place for all them stickers!
