    Cruiserparts.net charge $349 for it :eek: :eek: :eek: IIRC, I got mine from toyotaguys.com for less than $100 but I don't think it's available anymore; so Dan is your solution...Installation was easy theorically but my heart almost popped out a few times when drilling 4 small holes to the hatch.

    they keep the rear window and hatch clear and clean by deflecting air downward. I was going to get one but I've found I don't need one on an 80. Not sure why. Different story on our forester and just about every other /suv i've ever seen. My advice is save your money for something else.

    Semlin,

    Big difference in rear hatch cleanliness from my experience (used to wipe clean the rear hatch between washes).

    If you climb up and load a lot of crap on yer rig...that thing is just in the way, also...it rubs off clearcoat and the drilled holes you add will potentially be new homes for rust..oh yeah...why do you need the rig so dang clean anyhow?

    The one on my rig, which I removed, I think was OEM, althouh I could be wrong, and it required no drilling of holes...check sor.com
