    rear wings. Mine didn\'t come with one- :(

    I do quite a bit of highway/city driving going out for parts for our boats and docks--and we are entering the MUD season here in MAine-- My rear window gets decked with mud and road grist..

    What can I do to eliminate that crap on my rear window? I have a tendency to want to open the rear window and then all that crude scrapes the glass(like my old 86 blazer did). I've seen rear wings on some-- does that help?

    Would installing a rear window washer tank and pump be better(shoot a few quirts of blue while barreling down the freeway?) or maybe custom fit a rear wiper essembly? (no, that might get my ride confused with a jeep!)

    What helps? where can i get this--(without paying up the wazzoo for dealer prices, THANKYOU!)

    -or is this another silly useless item the blazer could do without....

    where do you find those stupid smiley faces anyway...

    Well, I keep all the windows rainexed. Then when I get mud on them I just hit it with the hose and it comes right off...

    The wing keeps the rear-window a lot cleaner, and also helps keep the fumes out. I know some guys dont like the look but I think it looks alright.

    Espen, I checked out your web page. Seems you've got the best of both worlds in your stable, clean K5 and a lean Thunderbird! Particularly liked the kick start, magneto, no nonsense - function over form.
