Take it to the dealer and see if they'll put it back on under warranty. Any bets?

Yep, that happens when you crash into things. I'm surprised that that surprised you...

I can't belive the JK is such a POS that the plastic held on by plaistc push pins cheap airdam got ripped off when you hit it on something offroad. How dare they. BTW you'd be amazed at what water being force fed into plastic parts will do to them. especially when they are held on by other plastic parts.

Yank the airdam off and re clip the fenders.

Look at it this way, what would piss you off more, a broken plastic clip, or bent paperthin sheetmetal?

BTW, welcome to JKO.

Pop in the Northeast section. We head out on rides in Jersey pretty regularly.

ok fine, ill be nice to the new guy.
the air damn is only held on by plastic clips and will fall off the first chance it gets, just rip it off all the way, it looks stupid anyway.

now there is a chance the innder fender wasnt on all the way, my first jk was that way, missing all the bolts and some of the push pins, stick your head under there and look to see whats loose and fix it, if your gonna go wheeling in a jk you better learn to fix stuff, cause the jk has alot of plastic and plastic doesnt like rocks.

You can't throw puddles at your JK and expect it not to break. Puddles can be pretty heavy, especially the deeper ones.

I got stuck in deep water last year and flooded my interior. Grr... flooding, I'm going to get an H1 at military auction.

Ok enough with the ripping on the OP.

The air dam is a crock. Rip that thing off and be happy about it. I tore mine off the first night I had the JK (on a fallen log). The inner fender liner I would be mildly irritated about. The dealer probably screwed up. A while ago the inner fender liners on most JKs (mine included) had to be trimmed to avoid rubbing the brake line. They probably tore the clips and didn't replace em.

If you've owned some form of Jeep in the past you should be acquainted with "trail modifications". In the three years I've owned mine I have become well acquainted with the mechanics that work in the woods.

The manual says to remove before off road use.

I would have happy that nature grows you remove it...two of my clips were a little stubborn when I took mine off...that was day 3 of owning it.

Complain about it being pos when the d30 fails, not the air dam...makes you sound like you have a sore vagina.
