Not that this is a tragedy, very few folks leaving them on. So what’s the big deal? That’s almost the moral equivalent of repainting your car a non factory color and they get all upset because it was never meant to be the color you repainted it.

Make cars. Sell cars. But keep out of people’s business after they buy them.

I agree and i never got a good reason why they want them off. One thing i will say, it is just barley held on by 4 push pins and the lip. So maybe fear of coming off? I think it looks stupid so i took it off. But i agree to each their own.

I saw a Camaro owner put yellow floaties on their splitter at a car show

I think you should install one of these in the rear window and get back into a Camaro.

The reason why Dodge wants you to remove them and thus the color change to motivate customers to leave them off has to do with people trying to file warranty paint claims after they do take them off and the splitter is all scratched up.

The shipping protectors are not water tight. Driving during the rain, or washing the car causes the debris in the water to get trapped. This debris scratches the paint, and people bitch about the paint being defective from factory.

*Note, I'm talking about the cars with the body colored splitters.

Seems like common sense, but you know, some people aren't common.

you need to put it on the front of the car that way the camaro and mustang owners know if they're dragging a 6.4 car or not. take the guesswork out.
