Clearance issue with front bumper

I have a 2010 WK Laredo with everything stock. This past weekend was my first time taking it off road on the beach. The lower part of my front bumper was scraping the sand while i was driving. I really do not want to change the suspension and lift it. I was wondering if anyone had any solutions for this problem? I am open to any and every idea. Thanks.

Re: Clearance issue with front bumper

just take off the airdam. It held on by a few clips.

The front air dam is designed to be easily removable. Removing it not only improves the ground clearance but also gives you a pretty impressive approach angle -- approx 34 degrees.

thanks for the quick responses. I have fog lights on my truck will this affect the removal of the air dam?

Re: Clearance issue with front bumper

air dam will come off in less than 2 min. Reach up and you'll see 5 or 6 clips, turn the top of them and they will pull right out. No tools required.
