You're quick I watch it every time it rains and whenever there is enough due to acumilate. Then when you slow down and the water runs forward and you hit the gas at just the right time the water will fly back and hit the windshield.

Yep, Im with you there.. a bit well north of you (Right near Vancouver/Portland here) and the weather just doesnt permit s to wax it right really.. rain rain rain, has been raining nonstop for a long while now. I guess the good news is.. I'm 5 minutes away from a good wheeling spot with over a foot in snow.. right up the backroads on the other side of the mountain =)

The most significant thing about them to me was:

1. They're real heavy -- at least my old fiberglass one was.
2. They obstruct the view slightly over the fender on the passenger side from the drivers position.

I got rid of mine and good riddance: traded it for an aluminum hood from a 2000.

u should wax your truck once in a while even though we're having sh***y weather here in the PNW. it helps protect your paint. even the cheap and easy wax wipes helps out.

hey michael do you have any pics where u go wheeling thats 5 minutes away?

I use Meguiers... when I wax my Ranger. The Bronco doesn't have a clearcoat so I don't bother waxing it.

Never noticed the water on the Powerdome, now I have something to keep me entertained!
