Hi all,

I’m planning on installing the Chief lower front guard once they’re back in stock, but I was wondering if any of you might know how much it’ll decrease my MPG if I leave the front fascia off? (vs. putting the fascia back on over the guard for normal driving - but then I have to remove it when going off reading).

Thanks in advance.

While I don't know the answer, it's incredibly easy to remove/replace the front fascia. Like 1 or 2 mins tops. I leave mine on for daily driving and just pop it off for trips.

I have the lower font guard from Chief and I’ve never put the front fascia back on. Aside from the bolt heads getting rusty I have no complaints and the mpg loss is minimal if any at all
