What do I hate more than trucks on the fwy?

When their tires fly off everywhere. Damnit I ran over a piece of tread on the fwy and cracked my new lip. The situation sucked because there were cars on either side of me so I had to take the hit like a man lol. Luckily nothing happened to my bumper. I contacted Revinora and ordered a new one and since they expedited the order I should have it this week.

Sucks man. Had the same thing happen to me a few years back to another one of my cars. Cost the insurance over $4k.

Splitters are sacrificial lambs. It did it's job perfectly with no damage to your bumper. It could probably be fixed and painted body color for the next owner.

Ya, I think of them as disposable but it is a pain in the ass. The thing with this lip is that its so easy to live with everyday. However, you can never predict something like this happening.

Not unless you add the aftermarket addition I thought. Let us know how that works out.
