Exclamation I don't get it!!!!

I just don't get the reasoning with the people who put spoilers on their trucks!!! I don't know I think it jsut looks gay. Whether its on the back of the bed or on the top of the cab. Whta purpose does it serve. And then there are the truck people who use the rally wings and bolt them onto the back of thier bed cover. I jsut don't think that you would need that much down force. ARGGG!!

Ash, I really like the truck, but the spoiler has got to go. It is like putting a spoiler like that on top of a hatchback Focus, it just looks like a grocery cart Dont belong....

Yeah, I love the truck (it's a Lightning if you don't know) and when I seen it with that god awful spoiler I groaned. God, why do that to such a beautiful truck?
And lately I've seen quite a few trucks with spoilers on them. That has to be the gayest thing....uggggh

Lightnings rock! But, yea, that one is ghey.

Spoilers on trucks are about as stupid as the fact that 80-90% of SUV's never even taste the dirt of a dirt road, much less go off road.
Why do so many people buy them? I must confess, I bought one. A Toy Rav4. I owned it for about 5 months and realized I was giving up way too much driving fun in terms of handling, saftey and comfort. ( I was impressed with its off road ability though- but I spend 99% of my driving time on asphalt roads!)
So, I traded it in for a Focus ZTW. I havn't regreted getting out of an SUV to drive a sportwagon for one minute. Plus, my dog likes the ZTW better. Not so far off the ground ya know.
