Default That damn dam

I've seen a couple other posts about this weeks ago but I can't find them now. I've been thinking of removing the lower air dam on my '13 Express CC. Is there any reason not to?

as far as i know, it just makes your Ram more aerodynamic, giving you better gas mileage

To improve the fuel’s economics, the company makes its front air dam longer. New thermo-plastics materials which is expected to prevent the truck from breakage when contact with curbs, rocks and other objects.

True, it helps with aerodynamics to smooth the flow under the vehicle and keep the stream away from the under body parts which will cause turbulence and drag. In conjunction with less turbulence it helps pull the air through the engine compartment more efficiently helping with engine and trans cooling.

But many people take them off and have no problems.
