    i'm getting a rear wind deflector sent to me, and i want to mount it once.
    my exhaust is duals straight out the back, so i can't drive with my rear window open.
    i'm thinking i'll mount it just above the roofline, because i want to channel airflow from over the roof down, creating a high pressure area, right? that will create a vaccuum at the top, pulling air from the interior, right?
    or do i disrupt the flow more on the vertical plane of the rear of the truck?
    just checkin'....

    Look at a 'burban and see how they mount it. I'm sure thats how you will want to mount yours as well. FWIW, if you are getting a stock "spoiler" you don't have much of an option on where to mount it, due to the pedestals they come with. 'burban ones fit the K5 fine.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?
