Re: Cab Air Deflector

Vortex generators are overpriced-- unless you can find "used." Abt $4 *EACH VANE! Both hard to recover in fuel savings --and an unreasonable profit. Would like to try a truncated rear foil and an underframe skirt (in front of dually rear tires). It seems no one's tried elongating a streaml...

Re: Cab Air Deflector

Dunno if there even *could be a "universal" foil for ambus-- so many differences to fit. Make sure your foil fit goes over the edges of the module, not like the pic. Poor designs abound that are unworthy of the effort. Try a salvage as mentioned, but these may be tough to remove *intact. Y...

Re: Ujoint Offroad Ambo thread

Doesn't that amt of lift alter the vehicle handling-- adversely? Increase wheel/tire size, yes, but beware rollover risk of high ctr of gravity.
