That would be gia-normous...I haven't seen anyone sell one like that...try semi-truck dealers...GMC sells a sunroof windscreen but that's it. Yakima sells both a fairing and a "windjammer" but I think that's for the crossbar issue not a box.

btw.. Does the moonroof deflector work to keep the wind noise down or does it seem to be more for decoration?

Thoughts?

Are you talking about a deflector for the front sunroof or the middle moon roof? The sunroof deflector helps with wind noise as it makes it a little more aerodynamic

I've used two different Thule boxes up there and have not had any wind issues. One made no noise at all and the other was so slight that if i didn't turn the stereo off and specifically listen for it, I would not have heard it. I think a lot of it has to do with how far back they are mounted. The quietest one was shorter and mounted back far enough that I think it got very little direct full speed air.
