Review & Install Video
These Rugged Ridge smoked acrylic window rain deflectors are for those of you that have a two-door 2007 and up JK and are looking for a way to be able to crack the windows, get some fresh air in the Jeep, and also keep the rain out. These will also change up the look of your Jeep, if that's something that you're after, and these are going to be a little bit less expensive than some of the more premium versions on the market.
These are gonna be made of a scratch-resistant acrylic material, so they're gonna hold up really well in the weather. They're not gonna crack, fade, yellow in the UV rays, or when your Jeep's sitting out in the sun. As it says in the title, these are gonna be the smoked version of these, however, these are also available in a matte black version, if that's the look that you're after.
This is gonna be a very simple installation, definitely a one-out-of-three wrench install, and this shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes to complete. The first step is going to be unboxing your new window rain deflectors. Hold them up to the Jeep, and see where the pre-applied 3M adhesive is going to contact that window frame. That way, you know exactly where you need to clean. Prepping the surface is the most important part when installing anything on your vehicle with this 3M adhesive. You need to make sure the area is nice and clean, and these are gonna stay put exactly where you want them for a good, long time. So, clean the area with a good alcohol-based cleaner before you apply the adhesive, and again, these are gonna stay put.
So, clean that area, peel the 3M adhesive off, stick these on, apply a little bit of pressure, and that's really all there is to it. When installing anything with 3M adhesive, you are gonna want to do the installation when it's fairly warm out. Right around 70 degrees is best. If you try to do this when it's cold, you're not gonna get great adhesion with the adhesive.
These deflectors will run you between $40 and $60, depending on whether you're buying the two-door or the four-door version, and that is going to be right in the area that I, personally, would be willing to pay for something that has a little bit of function, a little bit of styling, and it is a stick-on part. In my opinion, the more premium options out there, the WeatherTech options that are priced a lot higher than these ones, are a little bit much. If you are looking for that premium option and you have the budget, those are definitely out there, but for my money, I'm gonna stick with something that's right in this price range. I think these are really fairly priced.
So, if you're looking for an affordable set of window rain deflectors, I definitely like these ones from Rugged Ridge, and you can find them right here at extremeterrain.com.
