Front spoiler removed

Winter Storm Warning for tomorrow here where I live.

After cracking my front spoiler in the last big snow, I learned my lesson and took it off for this storm. It sure is fugly without it on there.



Here it is with the spoiler on...

Get a 4xGuard front skid plate. $260 shipped. Will protect the bottom of the radiator, help streamline the front end, and clean up the aesthetics.

I don't care much for them. I looked at them a while back, but they are just not for me. I like my painted to match special Overland spoiler, but didn't want to eff it up more in the deep snow again.

If I did anything to the front bumper I would replace it with an ARB painted to match with a warn winch built in.

Re: Front spoiler removed

Atta way to go all out!

Just be aware it will slightly exaggerate the rake and may look a little odd on a stock height WK - so lift it while you're at it!

I remember back in 04 when the new body F150s come out everyone was raving about the chrome bumbs, but I just rocked the ol orange. I'll just keep rocking them in the Jeep too.

I like how the orange breaks up the headlight circle.

Re: Front spoiler removed

The ARB sucks. Weighs a TON, and hurts your approach angle.

Oh yea a lift would be key with that bumper. I am thinking about lifting this summer.

The only angles I would be approaching is a parking space block.

I have the old Jeep for serious offroad adventures.

Re: Front spoiler removed

I took that cheap piece of plastic off my WK because I couldn't slide under the front to reach the oil drain plug with it on there. Never did put it back on and probably never will. Looks fine to me.
