    I've seen a rear air deflector on k5s,looks to be made of stainless or aluminum.Anyone know where to get one of these? I like driving with rear glass down but notice i get a lot of dust sucked inside thinking deflector may help with that. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    J.C. Whitney, if you can get hold of a catalog, they have them. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I just sent pics. I thought I had already sent them to you, but someone else had e-mailed me after seeing this post and I thought it was you.
    Sorry, I hope the photos helped.

    I have one that I got from J.C. Whitney.........It seems pretty much useless to me (doesn't keep dirt off the window or dust and exhaust fumes out) /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    A GMC/Chev dealer should still have this in stock. It costs $96.00 retail and comes complete with mounting brackets and screws.

    I added the deflector to mine and I think it put more dust on the window than before. I ended up taking it off and the back stayed cleaner.

    Suburbans use the same piece. (so pretty easy to find at pull a parts)

    I put one on my truck, the only thing I don't like about it is the height it adds. For its defense though, pulled into a parking garage the other day, smacked one of those metal pipes hanging on chains that tell you the vehicle is too tall (I was moving about 10MPH, just forgot I added the spoiler) and it didn't damage it at all. Sounded like it ripped it off though /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I've noticed that with the rear window down, I get a bit less exhaust in the cab (with the door windows open) than without it, (but you still get some inside) and it also seems to keep the road mist and rain off the back window better when moving.

    Those are my experiences anyway.
