yups the TRD wing will fit the stock holes...however you will have to drill another small hole to pull through the wire that lights up the rear brake light on the TRD wing.

well, the TRD wing will fit with the stock holes made for the stock spoiler, however you have to drill another 2 holes for each wing base.

I have a TRD replica wing and only have it bolted on 2 holes and it holds strong.

Also, what Virgilson said, you'll have to drill a smaller hole for the brake-light wires to run through. thumbsup

lets see... from the picture, you can see that using the stock holes is good enough to hold it down.

as for the hole for the brake-light wiring, i shaved the LED bar - so no drilling problem.
also, i already have a third brake light at the top of the roof and i dont need a fourth one thumbsup

be careful because your trunk prolly wont stay up on its own after that. you're gonna need stronger shocks

a replica is probably lighter. you may need stronger trunk shocks. climate affects their strenght, too. they are weaker in winter.

I believe my replica is lighter. My trunk can go up by itself and wont wear out my trunk shocks as fast - is should be just a few pounds heavier than my stock spoiler.

but the only downside to the replica TRD wings is that you might have to do some modifications on the wing itself - like I had to.

yep, TRD wing will bolt directly up, the additional clips that come on the TRD wing are not necessary. i just cut mine off and drilled another hole for the third brake light. thumbsup thumbsup

Yes it fits, you will need to drill 5 holes to add it on, or cut off nubs and drill one hole. U will not get a TRD AUTHENTIC wing for less than $300. You will get a crappy fake TRD wing from ebay for 200ish. Or just get a Wings West wing.
