Alohaspirit,

Tail overhangs the bumper a little over a foot. The tailgate does not stay open without a prop now I probably need new ones anyhow.)

My rear window is cut by about 2/3. I can still see cars when they are about 3 lengths away. The lexan breaks up the light a bit but I can still tell how close they are through it.

MPG gain is unknown until I can do some highway runs. I doubt that it will affect local island driving because it's mostly hills and I rarely get above 35mph.

I have not encountered the Mounties in the van yet. I may be a little out of the regs with it because it blocks the tail lights at high angles. I will add some extra lights soon. I need the plugs and some LEDs. I'm hoping to find a strip of red for the middle stoplight.

I like this angle best: That's what the rigs will see when they haul ass up behind me.
