Truck spoilers are used on the rear of a truck,in order to enhance performance and make the truck look more appealing. Even though spoilers are thought to only be car accessories, a truck benefits from it just as much because of the way a truck cuts through the air. The job of a spoiler is to stabilize turbulent air that is flowing over the vehicle to provide better handling. Since trucks are large and tend to be less aerodynamic than most cars, a spoiler actually will benefit most trucks more than it would a car because the box shape of most trucks creates more turbulence.
One of the main reasons a spoiler is added to a truck is to enhance its look and give it a sportier appearance. These spoilers are commonly placed near the rear of the bed or right behind the cab on a truck fairing. The shape of these spoilers will vary depending on the size of the truck and the spot they are placed. Spoilers on the rear of the truck tend to be much larger than a spoiler that is placed on the cab fairing. Since trucks are big and bulky, you will normally only find spoilers on high performance trucks that are better suited for highway driving than off-roading.
Installation of a truck spoiler can be a fairly difficult task depending on the size of the spoiler and type of truck it is being installed in. Most truck spoilers are mounted on a tonneau cover because that gives a flat surface which is easier to work with. Tonneau covers are usually used on these high performance trucks anyway because they eliminate any problems with air being trapped in the bed and creating drag. It is possible to install a truck spoiler on the tailgate or bed rails bed it will require allot more work and a perfect size spoiler to match the width between the rails.
