    I found this roof spoiler on Ebay. Curious if anyone out there has installed one of these? Does it get in the way of the rear window squirter? Any pictures?

    Does it get in the way of the rear wiper?

    Was thinking of ordering one of these a while ago, I'm guessing it will get in the way of the wiper, if not it certainly looks like it
    will get in the way of the water squirter.

    No problem Ragz! Be sure to post up pictures once you have it installed! I'm still on the fence on this one I'm really curious if there is any obstructions (squirter etc)

    ockevin may not be the best person to ask since he removed his rear wiper a while back :D

    Haha I guess that's one way of making sure there's no clearance issues.

    I wonder what it does to the aerodynamics? I would think it would create more aero drag.

    There are 3 molds of the "ebay" style wing..

    Topsage made Rodney a smaller variant ..I have the steepest sloped one for mine (which I had my autobody guy hackup (round the edgess) and shorten in width..hopefully it should be on by Toyotafest...(So It can be used with the wiper)...

    Just got it today via Fedex. Looks and fells nice. Not just a flimsy piece of plastic. Will install it later in the week, I have to wrap it first.

    Looks like we are still waiting for clearance info on the wiper and water squirter.

    Also which one on eBay did you go for?
