Question about TRD style spoiler

I noticed how the stock spoiler has two bolts on each side and the TRD style ones have 4 on each side, so does this mean when changing from stock to TRD you have to drill 4 holes in your trunk lid confused Did anyone do this ??

Or is it the spoiler I have is just really fawking weird confused

dont trip this is normal.. you use the the 2 and 2 stock ones and you only have to drill one extra if urs has the 3rd brake LED... the extra 2 on each side shouldnt matter thumbsup

it means you can drill 2 extra holes in each side if you wanted to (this is how the TRD spoiler comes from the factory--with 4 bolts on each side)...but just using the 2 bolts that are already drilled will work fine.

for comaprison..the ww v-vline spoiler is almost the same design and virtually the same size..and it uses only 2 bolts on each side.

...and TRD spoiler (4 bolts each side)

but as you can see they are very much alike with the key difference (besides the mounting hardware) being that the ww spoiler is completely straight and the TRD spoiler has a slight convex bend in it. (there are other differences but they are minor)

yeah, if you don't feel like drilling more holes on your turnk lid, go with WW w/o the 3rd brake lights. it's so much easier that way... thumbsup
