Default roof wing?

I am trying to find a "air dam","roof wing"or what ever it's called which is why I probably can't fine one.It's the bubble/wart looking thing on the front of the box to help air flow around the front when driving.or the cab roof type.anyone know a search term and maybe some links to where I could get one?I have a T4700 international.

Any chance you are referring to a "Nosecone". Google it.

What about calling it a "roof fairing?" Lot's of semi's have them. Maybe you can find one that would fit your truck.

I went to a truck yard and found a roof fairing off of a junked truck. I took it home and cut it down to the size I needed for my truck. After that, I welded a new support system together and mounted it to the fairing. I then lined it up to the truck cab to line up the holes I made in my custom bracket system (of course all internal), drilled it out, bolted it up. I have less than $200 in the whole thing.
