Remove the wing. For realz.

Everybody always says how they love their wing, they're not gonna take it off just cause nobody else likes it, it fits their car great, etc.. Then they take it off and love it.

I like it.

I think your car would look better with a sxt spoiler or none at all (just my opinion). But your car looks good man!

I kinda like the yellow center caps. Maybe get a vinyl sticker cut in like a dodge logo or a ram or maybe the old school neon logo.

Over four years ago I took my wing off then purchased an AVS (one of the actual AVS') I had it for awhile and hated it. Hated not having the wing so I put it back on and it's been there ever since. Some of us actually do like it :)

As for the wheels I like the paint, just not the center caps being yellow.
