I have heard that a wired back up camera is better than a wireless. The wireless get interference. It's a lot cooler when you have the camera on all the time rather than only when backing up. I agree with that idea. Also, a voltage regulator makes electronics last a lot longer because they prevent electric surges. Would be way cool to toggle back and forth between a rear view behind the car and maybe some personal entertainment DVD. Sounds Tekky and cool. The space between the sun visors looks like a great place for a monitor too.

I'm very thankful these older discussions are still available on the internet! Today I removed my rear wing, with the sole help of this thread.

On the positive side, I have slightly increased visibility (which is why I wanted the wing gone in the first place). I will upload some photos to illustrate the improvement - overall you gain an area of "about 3 rows of rear defroster lines" worth of reara view. This is just enough to hopefully see cars which are behind me at night.

There seem to be two negatives to this modification. The hatch gasket appears to be totally different than base models that never had a spoiler - it has "humps" in it at equal intervals, where each bolt hole is located. Not sure if base models have a finish strip that hides this mess? Also, the holes need an elegant way to plug them up so rain doesn't leak in.

After cleaning 15 years of dirt and wax residue off:


Visibility before (notice how the light color of the spoiler blocks the car behind me from view & looks like part of the street):


Visibility after (I can now see the roof of a car behind me!):

All 2002-05 Azteks got a spoiler. In 2001, I believe the spoiler was available on the Sport Appearance Package with the base model. There is a Citrus Green Aztek here in Austin that's a base with a green spoiler. I want a green one next.

I want to put a spoiler on my Aztek. 2 Problems. My understanding is that the 01 models were not provisioned for them, and my wife wont allow me to.
