Spoiler options?

Picked up a 2013 2SS for my wife, she's not a fan of the spoiler.

Can this be swapped out to the normal one? Or worst case, can I get a new deck lid?

Figures. The high rise... That's what I have and love it..

In any case, I think the mounting holes will be different if you want to swap it out with a plain old regular one.. Good news is you have several to choose from.

Yeah, just a glance at pics and I figured the holes were different. Just looking into options.

Some choices from Chevrolet Accessories here. You may need a new trunk lid since holes were drilled for your hi-rise spoiler.

I'd say you would need one that covers the mounting holes. I'd say go ZL1, or OEM Blade spoiler.

I don't mind the wing, not really what I'd put on it but it's there. Downside to buying used. My guess is, we're going to need to get a new deck lid because we both would prefer the clean no spoiler look.

Not a fan of that spoiler either, but it may come in handy. If you have kids it can help out if you take them on a picnic.

Why a whole new deck lid? There's always Bondo and a good body shop will plug those holes and repaint for a lot less than the price of a new deck lid (and labor).

I'd rather not have bondo on it. To fix it right they'd have to metal fill the holes and a new deck lid would be the best option.

the are prepainted plugs in body color that can cover the holes: some one on here surely has used them and will chime in as to where to get them I hope, as will someone who will gladly trade their stock 150$ spoiler for that $400 spoiler...lol There are a lot worse looking spoilers than the g.m. high rise as it is not that high, and is actually tasteful as high rise spoliers go. You should post in the parts for sale section... and read up on spoiler install threads and they may tell you where to get the body colored plugs.

Neither one of us are fond of body plugs or anything else. Either plain or minimal spoiler on a new deck lid is the option really.
