Ok, I just got a rear air dam/spoiler thingie whatever (thanks Eugene75) for my Wagoneer, it looks like its held on by well nuts. Does anybody know where the holes should go? Or should I just line it up, mark it, drill it and be done with it?
Any help WILL be appreciated. Thanks

Do u have the well nuts yet? If not check with Sutherlands if u have one near by. The auto parts stores only had metric ones here but Sutherlands had the 1/4x20's. Basically the air dam is attached as far back as possible but let me get a measurement for u in the morning just to make sure.

thanks for the replies.
irbob, I appreciate the extra help. We dont have Sutherlands here but someone did post that True Value might have them so I will check there first.
Maybe someone can tell me why the airdamn was offered as an option? I mean what does it really do? Was it installed at the factory or dealer? Did it come in a special package (towing?)? I always wondered. I think they make Grand Wagoneers stand out much more.

Not much Chris. How is your rig off road? Heard u took it up arround the fort.

chr1s...ur welcome...the dam thing is to help keep dust from settleing on the rear window although it isn't 100% affective in doing so. Probly don't do the gas milage any good either. It's a factory install. Oh and I didn't get those measurements yet but will really, really try in the morning. I would right now but I'm kind of at work.

Oh yeah.
Make sure you use a collar/stop on the drill bit so you don't drill thru the headliner ! [img]smile.gif[/img]

You guys are the best!!! Angus, and Woodybeone thanks for the pics! A huge help!
On a side note: I picked up everything (except plug wires) for my TFI today @ auto zone. Some of the parts were cheaper than I thought they would be [img]smile.gif[/img] . Im psyched! If the weather is decent tomorrow then TFI baby... WOOHOOOOOO!
