Glad you're still using the XJGuy name . . took me back to a 173-cid question I asked you about must be a dozen years ago now.

Lot's of good reading around here as you've noticed. Please continue with pics and ideas made solid.

Thanks. I would say the whole thing weighs in at about 15-20lbs.

Thanks for all the pix! Since it is so easily removable I wonder if ABA testing is in your plans. Quantifying gains with such a mod is invaluable to others. I understand if your project is done. I don't like to burn ga$ without good reason either. The least expensive road tests I can think of are coast down and Scangauge (et al) averaging over a test section of roadway. Regardless, I predict success and improvement with this mod. Even if airflow doesn't turn out fully attached you're stuffing the wake so resulting eddies can't be very big and your "bed bubble" is stable so the wake has to be less than open bed.

Rock on!

It does kinda look like the spaceship. I think an old coffee can painted silver out the very back would be a fun way to mess with tailgaters. A sticker (STAY BACK, AFTERBURNER HOT) would be the icing.
