Steps

Step 1

Clean the area of the roof where the spoiler will be in contact with the surface using only soap & water and dry with a clean cloth.

Steps

Step 2 – Test fit

Test fit the spoiler onto the roof area.
Do not remove the red protective film on the adhesive tape for this step.

Steps

Step 3

Align the spoiler with the same spacing on each side of the Cab’s Brake Light. Also ensure the same gap between each ends of the spoiler and the upper edge of the rear window in order to have the spoiler leveled.

Steps

Step 4

While applying pressure on the spoiler, install the 5 alignment stickers to the front edge of the spoiler to mark locations. Starting at the center, aligned with the spoiler’s arrow.

Steps

Step 5

While applying pressure on the spoiler, pencil in, a line on the central alignment sticker in line with the arrow at the center of the spoiler to ensure its ultimate reference location during final installation.

Steps

Step 6

Remove Spoiler.

Steps

Step 7

Using the supplied alcohol pad, clean the area of the roof where the spoiler will be in contact in order to ensure that the surface is clear of all contaminants (Oily film and/or Wax) for a proper installation of the spoiler.

Steps

Step 8

Carefully cut the front edge, red protective film (liner) at the center, inline with the spoiler top arrow.

* This cut may already be in place for some models.

Steps

Step 9

Peel back approximately 2” in / 50 mm of each inner edges (4) an angle on each side in order to be able to grab them once the spoiler is placed on the roof.

Steps

Step 10

This is the most important step as you will have only one attempt to perform it due to the strength of the 3M tape.

Carefully align, both, the arrow on the spoiler and the line on the center alignment sticker, as well as, the front edge of the spoiler with all the other alignment stickers while carefully placing the spoiler onto the roof.

Steps

Step 11

1. Once the front middle section is properly located in place, apply pressure at center area in order to secure it to the roof.

2. Once the center portion is firmly secured, proceed by slowly peeling the upper red tape liner away while keeping the spoiler aligned with the other alignment stickers.

Steps

Step 12

Proceed by slowly peeling the lower red tape liners from middle towards the ends.

Steps

Step 13

Once the spoiler is all in place, apply a good pressure all around the spoiler to ensure that all adhesive tapes are in proper contact with the roof’s sheet metal.

We recommend that all objects (Ex.: Ladder, Lumber, Kayak…) should be secured to the vehicle using proper tie-down straps. The straps should always be wrapped once, all the way around the item(s) before being secured down to the vehicle’s lower factory (OEM) tie-down hooks inside the truck’s box.
