Windshield question

Postby TennX » Fri Jul 13, 2012 7:02 am



I have a very long Slipstream windshield on my 1500 that Im not crazy about, is there any shields that will afford the same protection , but not come back near as much, maybe a recurve etc...etc...and Im experiencing quite a bit of buffeting also...many thanks..

How did it work in the lowered position. Should give you several more inches of headroom.

I know, but it gets better as you get used to it. Mine had been shimmed by installing dealer to lean more back. Might check, all the way up and 2" more room after removing shims.
