What about something like this, with the bottom widened to the width of the truck, and the top just above the Chevy symbol on my truck.

What protection vs drag would this design offer?
The tubing has a drag coefficient of Cd 0.1.15,round tubing would knock it down to Cd 0.30.You need 80 mm of radius for flow attachment.That would be 6.3-inch diameter round tubing,utilizing only it's edge,the rest closed in with skin.
