it would be possible but I don't know if there would be benefit from the side plates being too far inward from the edge of the D-pillar:

Maybe, even if the side plates get closer to the edge of the D-pillar, you could still make some attachment which would allow the entire spoiler to lift up with the rear hatch. How to get it supported by the rear glass might not seem easy, but I'm sure it's not rocket-science.

The front left wheel looked like it pointed way out compared to the right when the steering wheel was straight. So I rigged up a toe-measuring tool and it turns out there was a massive amount of toe-out, enough that I had to thread in the left side tie-rod 5/32".
Normal specs call for 1/16" toe-in on each side and by my measurements, toe-out was 5/16".

I've been driving like that for all the tests after the transfer case swap since almost at the same time I replaced the left side tie-rod.

Now I'm curious to see what effect that has on the fuel consumption reported by the trip computer.
