Hello.  I put a front spoiler on my JH5, really helped with cooling.  It looked good, however, it was kind of big.  Now i need something for my GT.   Is anyone using something a little smaller, either aftermarket or home made?  I guess i could buy a Club Store one and cut it down, but i am really just looking for something basic.  Any pics would be very helpful.

thanks

I made an aluminum 'extension' for the stock lower radiator opening which channels air into the radiator. It's not pretty but it really helps with the cooling, I painted it black so it wouldn't be so easy to see. I'll see if I can get a pic.

Thanks.  That's what I ended up doing as well, painted black too.  It only sticks out about 4 inches, but is well secured under the front valance.  i hope it helps.

It should. It dropped my engine temps from ~205-210 on the highway to ~185-195.

Hi Frank.  I'll try to take a pic and send it.  It was pretty straight forward.  I cut a piece of metal about 8" by 36" and then mounted it under the front valence with the bolts holding on the oil cooler and the side supports for the valence.

I sprayed it with undercoating.  Looks good although I was so concerned about placement front to back, I got it off center side to side(!).  oh well.
