I agree, its personal taste but i don't see any sense in putting a spoiler on a ute. And also it's in the way when you are looking in the rear view mirror. For me, if you buy a ute, you buy one with the bars! Me thinks bars look great on the ute.... But as i said, its personal choice.

Re: Spoiler or No Spoiler

I would love a sports bar, but alas having a hard cover stops that ;( and I need to lock the back (double :( haha)

And I do not have the 2k to buy the new ones that are coming out now which can use them ;(( (x3)

ahh well

Re: Spoiler or No Spoiler

Definantly no spoiler, looks totally out of place on a ute me thinks. Also the ford sports bar looks daft in my opinion, aftermarket ones with straight rear bars look much better. But still a smooth body coloured hard top looks the best.

No on the spoiler. Sports bar looks ok in my opinion.
