I took the spoiler off the front and brought it home to repaint it.

It looks like it does what it's supposed to do, it looks better painted, and you're probably about $500 ahead of a new one. Travel on!!

Looks great! OEM on mine is a bit 'chewed' on. Have you had any problems with hitting steep entrance inclines?
Thanks, Derek

Thanks Derek. I've never had an issue with the front. I have to be very careful with the rear though. Last trip I pulled into a parking lot and thought I was scraping the trailer hitch but it was the sewer valves and damaged it a bit.

I reinstalled my "non-OEM" front spoiler today. It's main purpose is to hide the front hydraulic jack when it is retracted. The "non-OEM" spoiler was installed years ago when the "non-OEM" leveling jacks were installed. The "non-OEM" gray paint from Dupli-color matches pretty damn well. I think I will sand and repaint the "non-OEM" remotely controlled heated mirrors tomorrow with the same "non-OEM" paint.

just saying good-bye to more of that 80's "style".

Wish I knew what I was looking at, but, really, pink is the way to go these days?
