Has anyone modified their plastic air damn to work with a aftermarket bumper? I saw a jeep here locally at a dealer with a rampage recovery bumper that still had the plastic damn

You can trim and cut it any way you like.

What's with all the damn questions? Do we look like we have all the damn answers? :D
Sorry. That was just too easy to pass up. Carry on...

I thought I gave a good dam answer.

I have modified my air dam and reinstalled with my Rampage Recovery Bumper. I reinstalled the air dam after I had mounted my bumper. To fit, I turned it around and grinder of a half inch or so of the front facing edge to fit. Looks great. I will provide a picture later.

I think the air dam isn't practical. If you're going to an off road front bumper, or you already have one, then why not get a real front skid plate. But yes, you can trim it or remove it.

I was on the trail and got stuck in the mud, I had to back up and when I did I tore the air damn off. I haven't replaced it and it doesn't seem to have effected my highway MPG as long as I stay under 70. If I keep it at 60 -65 mph I average 22 mpg, it's rather easy to do in Florida as every interstate is always under construction.

My apologies, I was referring to the plastic piece (which I do not know what it is called)on the top side of the bumper not the air dam below.
