It looks cool, but I have to ask: what is the purpose? Based on all my aerospace classes many, many moons ago, that spoiler will likely reduce your daily gas mileage by 1-2 MPG (more at interstate speeds). Unless you are pulling a trailer that is at or just slightly above the roof height of the Maverick, I am not sure what the benefit would be. Just a pure curiosity question.

After nearly 2 months, 1,000 f bombs, 2 caulk guns, and 1 ruined tube of adhesive, I finally installed the cab spoiler!

It's dope a/f! but are you going to do something about that antenna? There are infinite stubby options out there. It was the first mod I did, because I hated that out-of-proportion unicorn horn. Thanks

My truck has got big antenna energy! I thought about the stubby, but don’t want any issues when I’m bumping NPR.

The only preset I have is Iowa Public Radio. A Martinez, Mary Louise Kelly, and Peter Sagal never sounded better!😁

So, do you think it will decrease drag ecoefficiency?

Good to know! I learn so much from those people. My personal favorite is Dave Mattingly or Steve Inskeep!
