It gets resolved once you drive through some mud, then it all blends in nicely.

I'd recommend leaving the foam there as it supports the lower airdam when you put it back on.

Bigskiddy is right...just go over some mud and everything ends up looking the same...in the pic below that was before I had a guard installed, you see the whole front exposed but who cares when you are playing in mud !..

Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

Hi,

there is a faq section on the product at chief's site and I am very interested at the answer to the question "Can I drive with the OEM lower plastic fascia removed?"

I did not find the answer. So can someone answer the above.

If it matters the car in question is 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 Overland, 5.7 hemi.

The product looks great, otherwise

Of course you could drive but weather it is entirely legal is a matter for the road authority in the state you are in. Of more importance is what your insurance company thinks of it. However, anyone concerned about these sort of issues should not be contemplating after-market modifications in the first place. The rest of us just want to have fun. Life's too short.

Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

Insurance is only an issue if it can be proven that it contributed to the claim.

You'd only get pinged for it if you failed the "roadside attitude test".

Cheers,
Steve

Re: WK2 Lower Front Guard

The manual says you should remove the lower front fascia for offroading.

NOTE: Prior to off-road driving, remove the front air
dam to prevent damage. The front air dam is attached to
the lower front fascia with seven quarter turn fasteners
and can be removed by hand. The front license plate
bracket must be removed first if equipped.

Hi goro66,

You definitely can drive with the OEM lower plastic fascia removed.

We still haven't updated our FAQs yet, but they will be updated soon.

I hope that helps!

Cheers,
Bill
