I could sure use that rear window deflector on that brown wagon. what are the chances of getting that?

I'm willing to see about getting things, I'm not sure what the cost would be though.  I'll probably be out there again either this weekend or early next week.

On the wagons the rear window deflector is part of the entire roof rack. It's not a separate piece like on the Kammbacks.

The angle of the window deflector will also be different since the rear window isn't as straight up and down as the Kammback.

 Thanks for the information on the deflector.
