Default 3rd. Gen. Tailgate Spoiler Question

Could anyone who has one tell me how far the factory tailgate spoiler extends downward from the top of the tailgate? Reason I'm askin" is I acquired a dent above the tailgate release handle, ARRGH! and, not wanting to do bodywork, am looking for something to cover it up. I have liked the looks of the factory spoiler but also don't know about drilling four holes in the outside of the gate. Maybe someone knows of another good looking tailgate protector they would recommend. Need one that comes down to near the tailgate body line that is just above the release handle.
Thanks....

This is what I went with.

I wanted a factory third gen cap with the spoiler look as well but ended up getting this one from a buddy that had bought it and never installed it and I am very happy with it. It installs with 3M double-sided tape so no drilling and if you clean the area thoroughly with alcohol prior to install it will stick very well. I bought a roll of the 3M stuff at the local auto parts place and added a few extra pieces for good measure. It's quite a bit cheaper than the factory piece, fits just as well, and I believe it comes down just a tad lower than the factory cap. I can take a photo of mine so you can try to judge how far it comes down and whether or not it will cover your dent if you would like me to.

EDIT: I just remembered I had a rear pic loaded on this site already. Here it is...hope it helps.

Thanks starquestbd22, for the reply and the pic. That looks like it will do what I need it to do.
