Exclamation Sunroof deflector

I got my wife's Commander in November, and basically I haven't driven it in warm weather until now. When I open the sunroof, I get blasted with air!

There is not any pop-up deflector as is usual with these. Does anyone have one? If so, I need to get it to the dealer ASAP for a replacement of the deflector I never got!

They dont come with one, which I found out the first time I did a pre-delivery inspection on one. I thought they forgot it, then looked at all the others and none of them had one.

Re: Sunroof deflector

Thanks, I suppose. That's the most rediculous thing I ever heard of! Not you; DCM!

Now I've got to buy one of the plexiglass stick-on after market pieces of crap!

Whats really funny is that the holes are there for the factory type. I suppose if you found the right one, maybe from a Grand Cherokee, it would screw right in place and be just like it should have come from the factory.

Re: Sunroof deflector

... try to open the rear windows a little bit. I acutally enjoy driving with all windows and the roof open. Always wanted a convertible, but life is full of compromises

Re: Sunroof deflector

I posted this message on another board, but this board seems to be more message activity so am re-posting here.

There is one advertised on ebay at the link below. Or if you put the words "jeep commander sunroof" into the ebay search window, it will take you to this site.

Price is $46 plus $12 shipping. They "claim" there is no drilling required to attach the deflector.

As far as I know, there is no defector given from Jeep for vehicles with a sunroof. At least I didn't get one with mine.

If anyone has bought this defector and installed it on a Commander, would you please give a review about how easy it is to install and how good it works? I'm seriously interested in getting one of these myself

FYI, if you put the words "jeep commander" into the ebay search window, there are several pages of options you can order

Re: Sunroof deflector

Here's what I just ordered:

http://www.svcustoms.com/catalog/Aut...flectors.shtml

As the Commander's sunroof is 41" wide, I ordered the 41.5" size. Total price delivered is $44.05. Will post picture when I get it and install it.

PS: When to my dealer yesterday to confirm no deflector--which is correct--and saw MANY other DCM's with the deflector! Even a cheapo mini van with a sunroof had the deflector. Un F'g believable!!

Thats why I had to go out and look the first time I saw one, every other DCX sunroof has one, just not the Commander.

Re: Sunroof deflector

Has anyone looked into seeing if any of the pop-up type wind deflectors from other DCM's will work for the Commander? Maybe the pop-up piece could be ordered. Also if anyone could post some pics of an aftermarket install it would be appreciated and thanks.
