A front air cover sound like a grill block.
The air dam keeps air from getting hung up on the under side of the vehicle.
An air dam and grill blocks can change the vehicle appearance as much or as little as you want, only thing that limits the visual impact are your imagination, time and budget.

See this:
Car MPG Efficiency Modifications Main - EcoModder
Some mods are vehicle profile specific so they only apply to pickup, car or SUV bodies.
Others are engine specific there are big differences between how the same mod can effect diesel versus gas engines.
