So I have decided I hate the look of the front air damn under the bumper. I am going to remove this afternoon. But before I do since I do not have the Off road package and I have not added my own real skid plates in the front. Does anyone think I have to worry about high speed winds moving any parts around? or water getting anywhere its not supposed to get? granted it is under the truck so i would hope everything is designed to get banged up, wet and rowdy down there. you

feel free to post your thoughts or experiences in detail please. also I am aware of the MPGs potentially changing at higher speed........seriously I drive a truck with a leveling kit and big chunky tires.....at this point mpgs arent even in my vocabulary. :)

I haven't noticed any drop or air/water temp increase after removal. Save it so you can put it back on of you want. It's too 15mm lock nuts...

Dude if your truck is bone stock in might hurt a teeny bit at extended hiway speeds. But it looks soooooo much better without it.
Just do it. You can always put it back. It bolts on.

No, I am pretty sure we are speaking of the curb scraping air dam. There is talk that the dam helps direct air to the CAC and engine bay helping cool the air and water temps. I think that is bogus.

10-4. I just was thinking it was more bolts but I took mine off a long time ago. I have no idea why it's still it my garage!

For easy removal......just forward & reverse on said curb until scraping noise stops.
