Front Air Dam or Spoiler

I am wondering what my truck would look like with out the front air dam or spoiler on it, the one i have is that big wide one and i am not very fond of it, also will the more low profile ones fit my truck if the truck doesnt look good without it. Pics would be great...

I've heard rumors that the job 2 air dam gives an extra 1.5 MPG, can anyone whose ran both actually confirm this?

1.5 - 2 mpg minimum gain!


This is one area where a couple extra inches isnt going to do much...

Canuck_Stroker I was also wondering the same thing as well. I have the big chin spoiler and prefer the looks of the small one. If switching to the small one makes a 1-2 mpg difference, I think I will stick with my big one. Might have to take it off for a tank or two to see if it makes a difference without it and that will probably give a good perspective.

05_PSD_Erik do you still have the small spoiler you want to trade? I live in western Virginia pretty close to WV
