05-10 grc bottom lower opening
 
Hello fellow members, I was wondering is there a part that can cover the bottom opening dam of the front lower bumper or has anyone made a piece that would let less debris in through the lower front bumper opening.if so can you show a pic or let me maybe come up with a fabrication.thanks all :confused:

My guess is that if you covered that space you would severely hinder the cooling ability of your radiator. That opening is there for a reason. The only thing you could really do is maybe a wire mesh or expanded sheet metal.

Quite a few people have covered this space with a diamond pattern mesh (looks pretty good, IMO).

If you search around, I am sure you will find a few threads about how to do it. It is a pretty simple mod.

Thank you for your input.I didn't want to completely cover it, just something there to not let bags,or big trashy stuff get in there

Putting in the insert like pictured above will not negatively impact cooling performance. The overlands have this covering from stock. In fact, if anything it is a little bit safer, as you don't run the risk of a rock hitting your lower rad.
