Choking Dust

Just took the ride out for the first time this year and I cant believe the ammount of dirt that swirls back into the cab. I have a full front windshield with vents on the bottom and nothing in the rear. I have a rear enclosure but the window is really small and I cant see behind me. any suggestions on how to keep the dirt to a minimum or anyone know of a rear window setup that has a large viewing area? Thanks.

Garage
The roll up rear window works but I think there are getting hard to find for the older ones. The other thing that helps is putting something between the bed and the cab, some have used a blanket or a swim noodle.

is the rear enclosure you have now one that covers the whole opening in the back ?

if yes there isn't much else you can short of full enclosure ... read in HOT HOT HOT in summer ..

as said above the "swim noodles" to fill any voids in back will help but kinda a PIA to keep in place IMHO .. especially if you use a pressure washer on it after rides.

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Several members have installed the 2010 XTX Dust panels behind the seats, on mine it reduced the dust greatly! I also had the factory windshield, but the vents left a lot to be desired. Went to a custom windshield to break up the suction effect. Very little dust enters the cab now, and I don't have a back panel above the seats.

Saw dust/noise panel on ebay complete for 125.00, not a bad price.

also do yourself a favor, fill in your signature and location ... helps us by not having to wonder what you have rig wise, and then not to have to answer a question with a question ... so advise as to a cure/fix for your specific rig

Gary, did your Prowler come stock with the dust shield behind the seats? 2009 700's did not, but thought I saw it on a 2009 1000.
