After market lower valence skid plate replacement??

Do anyone know of an after market front skid plate that covers up the hideous mess under the front valence??

I live the extra clearance when removed, but the look of the car is ruined...

Has anyone designed an after market front skid plate that helps protect the front lower end while covering up the unsightly mess you see after you take off the lower valence??

Re: After market lower valence skid plate replacement??

Maybe if you remove the little spats in front of the front tires on each side the may give you an inch or two ground clearance, some owners have removed them already.

I did this day one! . I'm looking for even better approach angles and not having to worry about rocks on that lower chrome valence
