IMO I preferred the look without the air dam, especially if you have a skid plate installed :

Mine's a 2009, I think the front bumper changed '08 upwards from the first WK release in 2005. Mine's an export model (with factory parking sensors).

I think the grill also changed from the '05-'07 models to the '08-'10 models, when I was installing the Aspen Creek grill insert, I noticed that the factory grill is moulded into the grill bars as one piece, this does not seem to be the case from other photos of the same install on the '05'07. I am not sure if they have the same dimensions too. Worth reading up on this conversion to ensure everything fits. Its always a PITA to realise things you didn't factor in need changing (I call them school fees ).

Good luck bro!

Forgot to answer this question..

I would expect the weight of the skid plate to affect more than the removal of the air dam (aerodynamics), but tbh I am sure with the weight of the truck at roughly 3 tonne with driver/passenger, the impact will be 'negligible'. Same goes for fuel economy. nearly every mod has an impact somewhere to some extent, worth it for me when it comes to wheeling and looks

I think I have counter balanced the impact with a cat back, BMC dual cone CAI, 93 Oct Tune and a consistent service record

I think I was one of their last orders , real shame they went under .. keep the lookout I am sure someone else will take it up eventually!

did you check out what they have on Carid.com, might be worth a look ..
