Air Dam takes all of 5 seconds to take off.

I removed mine in the prep area of an off road park in less than 30 seconds.

It now has a permanent place in the shed at the house

Got an estimate to fix my Jeep due to a deer running into the drivers door Tuesday nite. Gonna have to replace the door. A new door is $1975!!!! Probably gonna end up w/ a used one. Total was just about $2500. Can't stand looking @ the caved in door. Hoping to drop it off Oct 7!!!

I like the black steel wheels. Where did you get them? I'd like to get a set for winter tires.

I asked for the cheapest rims at a local mechanic! That sounds bad eh, but it looks almost better than the stock mags on my KK.

Shoot I wish I had. All I got was dust and rocks to the face! Hard to read a plate when you can't see the road in front of you. >:-(

Stupid truckers.

Yes it does. I haven't even considered removing it, didn't look that close. Would the cover come off with that removed? I really need to get a good look at my gears and maybe a pic or two. Lots of noise and the mechanic tried to tell me it's either the tires (general at2's) or possibly a cv joint. Well, the tires don't slung like gears whining and cv joints click when they go bad. Besides, one of them is new and that guy checked the other one himself the last time I went in there. He's the one that found the bad axle and both CV's were good. The spline failed.

If you're talking about the drain right below the oil filter its there to direct oil down and around everything as to not cause a huge mess. Removing it would let oil run everywhere

I guess this is your answer, Ted. Def remove it when you do your front diff oil. Gives much more clearance for your hand and the bottle, unless your have one of those gadgets.
