    Don't get me wrong so do I but not all of it's elements are conducive for adding aero ie the front and rear skirts but if it kept similar looks as the factory bodykit while reducing drag and helping with downforce how could you go wrong

    thank god! Yes, i would love to see this done and would be first in line to pick up one or do the same. I think the rear end of our trucks looks hideous and a splitter that pulls down the middle underside of the rear would make it look much much better.

    good luck :top:

    Not a good chop, but is this kinda what you're looking for (TRD-Style)?

    Not bad but the diffuser should be up higher I think

    This idea has been floating around the H-Town crew for quite a while now. Excellent for reducing drag. With a front splitter and under body diffuser, you would have better acceleration, top speed, and better high speed handling.

    If any body can post any under body pics of a Ferrari, you would notice that it has a flat panel under body and a rear inverted wing instead of a spoiler. I can't remember the model, but I think it is the 360 Modena.

    think its a good idea but I would have to see a finished product before I could decide. Think the chop u did Steve looks good.

    I know personally I'm not worried a out access to the spare but you could do a quick drop panel where the spare is

    They have a contact page where you can ask if they could look at doing something for the x and then post it here so we can all send the same message to em
