Front Air Dam?

Instead of cutting it, I removed the piece of plastic attached to the bottom of the front bumper when installing my snow plow. Is there any significant benefit to air flow, or any other reason why I should not leave it off? Thanks..

Nope.

Engine will get dirtier. I use mine as a feeler gauge off road. I don't have to pay attention to much until it drags.

I removed mine and replaced it with the 17 F250 SWD front air dam. Looks much better to me.

Takes longer to unbolt it that it does to cut it. Best mod I've done.

What did you use to cut it? Jigsaw, Bansaw, Hot Knife? Curious. I am thinking of cutting mine down or even fabing a metal one and water jetting it.
