Wondering general ETA on these bad boys. I might be a +1 when you get it up and running. I am not lowered so what is the general advantage to having one? Does it increase road noise? No real issue with safety to the car or engine?

I am not sagging yet either, so might not need one until spring-ish.

Sweet idea. Plasma cutting can be wicked fun!

ETA should be soon. I'm in the middle of a career change right now. There isn't a noticeable difference in road noise. I noticed an increase in fuel mileage by adding just this one. It got even better when I made one for the back. I like the thought of having more protection under the engine. Sometimes you can't swerve to miss things on the road.

Will you have one available for the back too? I may be interested as my highway commute has gone up since starting school.

Pretty nice! Any debris get caught up in there as it is closed off at the bumper? Something to clean out every now and again?

Looks like just 4 extra bolts/screws hold it in place yea? Looks good! Just a little bit of sheet aluminum and 5-7 mpg gains. Crazy.
