So many guys mount a lip to the bumper, then and undertray to the lip - then when they go off track and catch it on something, it takes off the splitter, lip, and half the bumper, if not oil cooler and radiator as well...
ya i'd prefer a splittler that did what it was supposed to instead of acting as a plough

but that makes sense, having anything independent of each other...ready for more updates!
