Chin Spolier - fast/easy/cheap/effective - Pelican Parts Technical BBS

I did hit a snow drift (spun) this last winter when I went on to a side street and touched the gas coming out of the turn. I was trying to save gas keeping it out of 4WD, not always a smart thing to do. I now have a crack in the plastic chin valance above my home garden chin spoiler (in one corner). I still have to fix it, helps that the truck is all black, I forget it's even cracked.
2WD instead of 4WD doesn't save gas. All the same drivetrain parts are spinning, except it's the road spinning them.
