    nxrunner has one on his truck. I think it looks better than not having it. Maybe he can post the pics for you.

    And Bobby it's not like it's one of those 5 foot tall aluminum wings that make your vehicle look like a lawnmower. The stock toyota accessory actually is tastefully done.

    i have one. i've loaded a bike into my bed with it on.. basically its flat on top like the regular tailgate protector and when u lay down the tailgate the wing goes at like a 45degree angle towards the ground.. unless ur bike ramp is really heavy duty.. the overlap part goes on top of the tailgate and the rails sit on the flat part before the wing starts. it'll work just fine, if u have issues with it, take off ur tailgate, it's probably safer like that neways. i like it b/c it makes the tailgate the same height as the bed rails.

    it would look off being color matched b/c the top of the bed rails r black plastic as well. plus for people loading bikes and such it'll get scratched up anyways.

    Aerodinamically does it work? Or is it just for looks? Cause I don't see it having any purpose. All the airflow goes into the bed and hit's the inside part of the tailgait and causes resistance.

    If you want to but a wing on your XR by all means do so. That one doesn't look half bad. IMO wings don't belong on trucks. But then again what do I know I have a Sponge Bob licence plate frame on XR, call it lame, gay, dumb whatever I like it. Go get you a wing bradah!
