if its TRD replica, wouldn't it mount in the stock location? if you're gettting a wing like mine then you'd have to drill holes, which i did and wasn't fun...

id just get a genuine TRD wing. i really regret drilling holes in my trunk. the wing mounts have started eating up my paint, leaking water when it rains (which falls onto my subs in the back angry ) if you can avoid it, don't drill your trunk.

my replica TRD wing fit into the stock holes and stubs.

i dont knnow why you have to drill new holes, unless you want the extra 2 holes for each side (TRD wing consists of 4 holes on each fin)

Toyota hasn't made the TRD body kit since 2003 so I don't imagine they make the matching spoiler any more either.. watch who you deal with.

To the rest, yes goes with Wings West, it's the absolute best imitation.

If I were you Id go with wings west or ^^^^^do what jbing said. Dont get a rep that wot fit. you will just be kicking your self in the ass if it wont fit at all (without just drilling holes)
