    I think it helps direct air flow around all the bumpy things on the bottom of the truck to help with fuel economy. I took mine off before I broke it. First time hopping the berm to turn onto my unplowed road and part of the air dam would get left behind.

    I also agree that is more for cooling than MPG's. If it wasn't why would we have F350's, Ram and Chevy 3500's, which don't even count in EPA mpg estimates, with bigger air dams than what we see on the F150. Its to help pull air out of the engine bay. You cna have as big a grill as you want, but if the air stacks up behind it, its not helping.

    On the 15 and up there's nothing there that would direct the air to the intercooler. Apparently there is on the pre 15's though, I can't remember on my old 2013

    Ugly, yes. Mileage and or cooling, I do not know for sure. It is very flexable and will be hard to crack or break. I'll leave mine on, sort of a curb feeler (if your that old), for rough trails to let me know when stuff below is getting close. KM

    I don't actually see it when I look admiringly at a truck. Or at least it doesn't sing "see me", for some reason.

    I suspect that's because a truck is already a brick to my eye? Or a truck gets put into a different visual category than say.... a low and close to the ground aerodynamic performance car. Because I DO see the hem of those sexy skirts clearly.

    I had taken mine off of my leveled ‘18 SCREW XLT 4wd. Looked like it was missing something, so I put it back on. To each his own, I guess.

    First mod I did was to pull it off. Noticed nothing besides looking better. 4 years later...
