    Anyone got a spoiler or wing on their top? If so has it always been there or did you install it? Does it really cut down on exhaust fumes around town? I'd be nice to go somewheres and not have a new scent on me ode' gasolin'....what about rain does it really keep it from getting sucked in? i saw one on a stock suburban at the yard a few weeks back the guy said $40....just thinking about it and thought i'd ask...Thanks, sorry if I got some of ya with the topic just thought it'd get some attention

    What? You think the hole is too deep? Lemme see...

    Hotstuff (Jim) has one.... he is selling it too (or maybe he sold it already?) You might PM him to see what he thought...?

    I've got one to put on, but haven't done it yet. I believe it WILL cut down on rain/dirt on back window, but fumes? No.

    Exhaust problem is worse when you are cruising around under 35 or so MPH, and the "spoiler" won't have much effect at that speed. You can eliminate the exhaust smell problem at speed (over say 35 or so) by rolling down one or both of your front windows when the rear window is down.

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

    Is it just me, or is that "Scotty flying" picture actually a Bronco (Hate to even say it) that slipped through the cracks??????

    Its a small track that some atv'ers had set up off of the power lines behind my mother's house in Pensacola, FL. My brother learned that you have to strap your cooler down when he jumped it.

    Scott was a really good guy...he spent some time coaching us sand newbies and letting us in on the little secrets to wheelin in the sand.

    He was also the one that egged me on to get some 'real air' off that dune.

    My Blazer flies quite regularly - but the FAA has temporarily grounded it due to questionable motor mounts. In all seriousness though, the spoiler deals do help - my granddad has one and it works great for keeping the exhaust out. I'm fixing to add one myself one of these days.

    I had one of them rear wing spoilers on my K5, and yes it did cut down on the exh. fumes. I took it off cause i didnt like how it looked, but miss its performance. Keeps the rear clean of dirt too.
