Is there an air dam add on for 07 Tahoe LT 4x4?
I'll try post pics.
Mine has a thin support abs bracket at the bottom. Appears to be part of the bumper cover. Is it missing something. Bought the vehicle used like this. Need to improve aerodynamics. Has any one tried to create a diffuser at the back?

As a retired pilot, I don’t think aerodynamics are going to make a difference to a Tahoe. My ‘81 Suburban could plow through deep snow with it’s chrome bumber. By the time I bought a 2018 Denali, the air dam was so low to the ground it scraped parking curbs and dragged in any snow accumulation, particularly on rutted side streets. I finally cut 4 1/2” off my airdam with a jigsaw and now have a much more snow capable vehicle that looks better.

Compare MpG cruising @ 60MpH vs cruising @ 70MpH, think again.
Some people don't care about the difference; that'd be the difference between ignorance & indifference?
Insouciance?

It really is too bad the fronts of vehicles more closely resemble walls, than the front of SnowPiercer ...

Looking to do one myself. I was thinking of using my bumper to to make a mold out of cardboard and FG and see if I can design it like the ZL1 or something.

I cut about an inch off the bottom of my 2016 Tahoe's air dam. Got tired of damaging it on curbs.

I removed mine because I kept hitting it on rocks.

No difference in mileage, due to many other factors. Heavy foot included.

I have the same SETINA push bumper on my 2015 PPV Suburban, and I actually took the lower air dam OFF, in order to improve the wind resistance issues and also to make the truck look a lot sleeker !!!
