Air Dam Retro Fit

Anyone have pics of a newer model (ex. 2012 4x4) air dam on a 05-07?

I think the 08-10 lower air dam/deflector is a bolt on the 05-07 trucks.I would think somebody has done the mod.

What kind of trimming was needed? I see you mention trimming in your write-up. Thanks

The area that needs trimmed is where the air dam attaches to the bumper, the newer on has a wider area. Also the new air dam have a different shape/curve that you have you have to adapt to fit the curve of the old bumper. This is where you have to drill additional holes to mount it. I trimmed the new one close to the size of the original and checked the fit. I think the only hole that lined up was the center mount. You attach that one first and work out toward the ends fitting/trimming the air dam as you go. I tried to follow the curve of the original bumper, the newer trucks have angles in the bumper near the tow hooks. The air dam also has the same angles but you can get to fit the older style bumpers. If you look at the photos below the tow hook you may see the area I mention. This is why it is not a direct bolt on part.

Are you saying that you had to notch it to make it bend to match up to the bumper? I guess what I'm asking is if this is a big ordeal to make fit or if some dummy such as myself can do it?
