Thanks, Beach! I didn't realize they had different sizes. I remember you showing me your yellow one at camp on Bill Moore. I might have to get a red or black one and retire my ghetto rope & carabiner setup.

I think I may plasti-dip the hook too, to keep down on any potential rattle.

Don't you risk pulling in a lot of exhausts fumes into the cabin?

Re: How to keep your rear window open...

I keep this on all the time. Wheeling, parking in the ghetto, thunderstorms... Never had any issues. I only take it off on dusty trails. I cut a small piece of tubing to put around the hook to keep it from rattling. I've been VERY happy with this product. The yellow one is the perfect size in my opinion because it keeps people from attempting to get in.

With the front windows down, the wind goes through the front, then out the back. Only get fumes when I floor it jumping on the freeway. Not nearly as bad as rolling down the window in the 4runner. But I also have the TRD exhaust that turns out the passenger side, not out the back.

On the way home, we stopped by Blue Mesa Reservoir for a little lunch and relaxation before hitting the road again. Captain thought it was a good idea for a swim. Yup, wet stinky dog the whole way home. It was great having the window open so we didn't have to smell him the whole time.
