    I really like the OEM one that some of you guys have, the aftermarket one that is in the works I'm not sure I would like to much. I am one of those people that likes to see the finished product before I buy, peace of mind I guess...

    If it looks like the stock trd as long as I can see how it would look before purchase I wouldn't have a problem, can't buy a car before you see what it looks like? So I will never buy something that's just in the air IMO

    IMO Toyota discontinued their tailgate spoiler because it was cracking on the edges. Every one I ever saw was cracked. You couldn't see it unless you opened the tailgate (if I remember correctly) but it still would be classified as a defective design if you had a high failure rate.

    don't all of them do that? I think its because the tailgate flexes and the cracks happen.

    What causes the crack is your butt. When you sit on your tailgate, your legs drape over the edge of the spoiler. This weight acts as a lever and causes the cracks.

    For me it was my Pastor. He was helping me move a dresser drawer into the truck. I told him to lift it and not lean it against the edge of the spoiler... he didn't. :thumbdown:
