Stock spoiler position

Ok, this is a wierd one. Does anyone feel that the stock spoiler should be closer to back of the truck lid than it is?

Wouldn't the spoiler have a larger more aggressive look if it were further back?

I'm not sure about an aerodynamic advantage, but I think it would look better. I took my stock spoiler off, and I will take some picture of the spoiler in different positions.

This is the exact reason I removed mine. The stock location just does not look correct...

I moved the stock spoiler further back on the truck lid than the stock position. The change is subtle. Here are the pictures.
