I think it looks ok. I'd like to see a side profile pic, but it's nice looking. If you like it, get it. Who cares what anyone else thinks.

A bit steep for a cosmetic item, especially when it still needs to be painted.. looks nice though.. if you get it post some pics!

Not my cup of tea. Having a pro shop paint it will be $100 and up. I would spend the money on speakers or back up camera, etc.

I would avoid it for the air flow factor.

usually manufacturers put a spoiler up there to force air down onto the rear glass to blow rain/water off of it.


doesn't look bad though. not sure I like the idea of basically $400 for a tiny part like that

x2, but personally it looks boring, and certainly not worth the hundreds, plus the holes in an area that will be prone to leaking in the future, and if it is just stick on, I would run the other way!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone know if a spoiler from an older Expy will fit? Not sure if there is any physical change in the rear tailgate.

The mounting area is plastic. I know 'cuz I've got a spoiler in the garage the past three year and never put it on. Was hoping airflow would help keep the glass clean, but the mounting doesn't seem too secure.

I know the spoiler isn't OEM but it is black, which is fine as my truck is the same color. Brackets required drilling two holes on each side and I've passed for not. Maybe this summer?

The aftermarket spoiler on my Explorer glued on and has been there since 2002. Not sure how clean it keeps the back window, but it makes finding the truck in a parking lot a lot easier.

I dig it. It's pretty clean looking. Honestly, I thought spoiler? no way it's gonna look good. But that's not bad... I too would like to see a profile shot though.

Link to the company who makes a body kit for our Expy's You can scroll over the images to get a small side view of the spoiler.

It will look too much like the back of a Toyota Sequoia (sp). But it still adds a nice line.
