    I am thinking of taking of that plastic lower air dam. I was wondering if there are negative effects in doing so. Any thoughts one way or another?

    Take it off, it looks 10 times better without it, and it makes no difference to the truck mechanically. I've had mine off my '05 for quite a while now and I know a lot of the NNBS guys on here have taken theirs off too.

    Real easy mod -1 bolt on each side then clips along the front that you pry off.Take some before and after pics and post them.

    X2 on what BigB said. Super easy and if you dont like it, well it take about 3 minutes to put it back but how can you not like instant 4" lift???

    Well what it does is give you more front end down force when driving for better handling at speeds above 120 MPH.. What does that mean to a 5000LBS Truck? Nothing...

    Exactly! But I do believe the NBS 1500's are electronically governed at 100 MPH anyway... At least that’s when my motor decided to cut out on me. It had so much more gear left in it too…

    Looks great. Gives the impression that the truck is higher up than it really is. Nice job:great:

    I kinda wonder if the little chin spoiler on my 1998 is there to slightly improve HY FE?
    Doubt it is worth more than .2 mpg- so take it off it you don't like the looks
  18. Looks good. I just took mine off the other day and I am happy with it. Don't know if anyone will notice it. It's one of those really subtle changes where someone would think it looks different, but not know how/why. I think it looks 100% better.

    Instant Face Lift...I did this the night I had brought my truck home. Should have seen the wife...I still had the window sticker on the truck and start pulling tools for mods

    Sweet, glad I found this thread. I was looking over my 11' and that thing is just downright ugly, let alone to close to the ground!
