I think it suppose to help a little with gas mileage also but don't think it will change it much.
Evevated, a forum vendor, used to give board members discount on their skip plates made for stock bumpers. Not sure if it is still valid but you should finde them in the Vendor section

|KBR97||Being that it tore off and the mounting holes ripped through...throw it in the garbage, better yet the recycling bin. Its pretty much a useless piece of plastic.|

|sheetsd66||Seriously, just throw some longer spark plug wires on it and run it till the rear air dam falls off, too.|

|da_duck||Well that's no fun|

|willywaxer||That plastic bumper is next to go after that air dam. Mopar and several others make nice metal skids that fit there, but it's a waste if you don't have a decent bumper. I know it is an extra cost, but think of it as a safety issue....at least that is what worked for me with the wifey.|

|2010WranglerMountain||That was the first thing I took off of mine....figured take it off before it gets ripped off.|

Actually-all kidding aside !!
It's a Chrysler/Fiat designed "FLAPPER VALVE", to give prewarning to "MUDDERS"-

|sheetsd66||Looks more like the catastrophic converter. You'll be fine without it for awhile until it burns the main prodsponder out.|

|phottomatt||No no no you guys are all wrong....its the hysenburg compensator, he will not be able to reach warp speed.|

I'm pretty sure that's the part that holds the Jeep together.
I ripped mine off on day two. The hood did flutter more at highway speeds, but was fixed after the new bumper went on.

|jkjeeper06||I drilled out the plastic screws that hold it up and then I used bolts and wing nuts to hold it up. That way u can take it off quick when you wheel|

|Stretched2000||zip ties are great for reattaching things|

|Trunz150||That's ur splash guard for the engine I thought u should reattach it for when u go through water so it doesn't splash up on the engine as much|

|ZOMB1E||That's just your plastic air dam. You might notice some hood flutter on the highway without it, and that's about it.|

so i was backing up through a mud hole and this caught on a root and popped off, how important is it and what does it do?
