Air dam

Finally got my JKU in black and I'm loving it! will start with few budget mods and I was wondering if the air dam under the bumper is necesary for the jeep? most of the aftermarket bumpers don't seem to have that.
Thanks

I ripped mine off and have not noticed a decrease in fuel use (YMMV as I drive in a hurried fashion -everywhere)

Thanks, I was hoping I wouldn't see a big decrease in fuel economy if I do that.

You can remove it manually or it'll remove itself on the trail. Your call.

LOL. Just like I did on my buddies when I pulled him backwards out of a mud hole. We wrapped a few bungies around it and the bumper so we could keep wheeling until he could get home and cut it off.

It's just there to enhance what little aerodynamics Wranglers have. IMO....ditch it.
