Beats me too but I'm not going to delve into it.
I'm happy as Larry with mine. Gives a really nice finish.   2thumbs

That last one with the front shot looks good. Is this the 67 or 69 version?

Best mod ever!

So why is it that a Chevy part fits better than the average Mopar repro part?   Beats me but that was a fun little install for one hell of a visual upgrade.  It looks tons better hiding the sway bar and the added flat black fits in nicely with the theme!   2thumbs

I bought mine from Ground Up and it came with three different braces and hd bolts and clips/nuts.

I drilled a few holes in the top lip of the spoiler so it lined up with some of the cutouts in the valance.  I used thick and wide washers so I can really clamp it down and here's the best part:  The longest brace in the pack (see pic) has one flattened straight end and one at 45 degrees.  I made the latter flat as well and it lined up perfectly to the K-member bolt and the bottom hole in the middle of the spoiler.  There was zero resistance, this thing is made for 2nd gen Chargers!

I got tired of lying on the ground and ice cream was calling my name so I have not braced the outer corners of the spoiler because it ends right under the big cutout behind the parking light.  Don't have a washer that big... icon_smile_big

I know this is a very old thread, but I decided to try this and bought the '68 spoiler on Ebay. I really like it and have had a few people comment on it already. I'm sure it's not for everyone, but it's easily reversible and I didn't have to modify my car at all to mount it.

Looks great! I love it.

Ive been running the 69 spoiler for years now, and most people just assume its factory. I love that it hides the sway bar and k frame too.

I also assume there has to be at least a slight aerodynamic benefit from diverting air around the K frame/under the chassis.

 I ran an aluminum strip on the bottom edge to keep it from flexing so much.

I think the '68 spoiler is a little deeper than the '69.

Since I am trying to decide which to buy I have done a little comparison on the AMD ones.
