xtreme air dam

I've got a 00 extreme, and like everyone elses' my air dam is cracked down the middle and the paint around the crack has chipped off. Im looking to replace it and Im tossing around the idea of using the air dam thats on cervinis website. But will it look decent with the fender flares? or am i better off to go with a bumper cover? If I was going to do that i would use the ss style from street scene anyone have a pic with that one installed? thanks for replies in advance.

Re: xtreme air dam

the SS one is nice, but it doesnt line up with the bottom of the kit. so it will be a different height than the rest of the side skirts and might look a little funny... but it's all user preference

Re: xtreme air dam

Stick with the stock X airdam, you won't find a better looking better quality piece.

Re: xtreme air dam

Re: xtreme air dam

When I got one it came squashed up in a box pretty much, plus im told there a bitch to paint, I never got that far I bought an OEM one. But you are correct sir on durability, they wont crack like fiberglass.

Re: xtreme air dam

The stock ones are actually a mixture or some shit, actually I have no idea what they are made of...I just know the "urethane" one I was talking about was VERY flimsy, I bet it would flap in the wind as you drive.

Re: xtreme air dam

I believe its polyurethane either way mine works great since the reinforcement (steel) I have banged it against all kinds of shit and haven't cracked it yet, just a couple paint chips but oh well when its sittin 5inches off the ground I dont expect it to be flawless while being driven daily

Take it to someone and get it fixed and reinforced so it won't do it again. Another option is to get the one on ebay that is 249.00. They state their's is stronger than stock.

Check with Hucko. Depending on the shape it's in he is pretty reasonable. He sold me one with filler plate and fogs for 150 but shipping will kill you.

Re: xtreme air dam

My truck has the infamous crack in the middle. Is there any use in fixing this or will it just crack again in the same spot?

Re: xtreme air dam

it can be fixed, but your gonna want to brace it from the back, and yes it will probably crack again right in the same spot, ive learned to just buy a damn new one.

Re: xtreme air dam

Have two friends with s10x's and they both have cracks right in the middle. We tried to bondo one with no luck. Glass didn't work either. I would just get a new one, they cost a crapload but its all in how you drive your truck. You have to be careful, its your baby!

Re: xtreme air dam

If you want to fix it you have to use SEM plastic repair. I've fixed alot of bumpers with it at work and never had one crack in the same place again.

Re: xtreme air dam

I have the same problem with the crack in the center, from what i understand the urethane ones are a lot less prone to cracking. I'm looking to replace it but am not sure whether to go with a oem one or urethane one now based on what i'm hearing about the urethane.
Can anybody tell me roughly how much i should expect to pay a body shape to replace and repaint the air dam?

Re: xtreme air dam

I see I see, I thought you just made the claim like someone hit it with a shopping cart in a parking lot or some silly shit like that.

Im always afraid my rates gonna go up, thats why I try and not claim anything unless its someone else's fault.

They get me out the corn hole for $$$ as it is now.

Re: xtreme air dam

Maybe it was a one in a million shot, but I don't think so.

I have gone through maybe 4 air dams and I drive VERY cautiously at that.
