    Default What is the plastic piece under the front bumper called?

    Hello,

    I did some off roading and the plastic piece on the front drivers side under the bumper has partially ripped from the screws and now hangs down. I think this is called the splash shield. Can anyone confrim? A Toyota P/N or reference to an online dealer would be excellent.

    Kevin

    I believe it's called a valance.
    Dark charcoal gray CST leather, Wheeler's coils w/ HD Bilsteins, BFG 265/70/R17 A/Ts on 17x8 Boyd's, factory DVD RSE system, tinted windows, black OEM all-weather floor mats, BedBolts hooks in the center of the bed (dog anchors), an OEM rubber bed mat, VSE Subwoofer, K&N FIPK, JBA Titanium coated headers, Spintech 3333 Sportsman muffler..........so far.

    Coming Soon: Line-X, maybe a billet grill.

    UNDER- Lower Valance. BEHIND- Spash Shield. I'm not exactly sure which piece you are refering to. Either way, relatively inexpensive piece.

    Ok, it is the spash shield. Any negatives to leaving it off the wheel wells? It seemed to rip pretty easy off roading and I don't want to make a habit of replacing this.

    I took mine off because the holes that the bolts go through were cracked all the way to the edge and they would not hold anymore. The only negative effect I can see it having is mud or water getting to my fog lights which are now visible from underneath because I removed the splash gaurds. There has not been a problem yet with driving in rain or mud. I have yet to try standing water. I can't see it causing a problem, those lights should be air tight right?

    There is no plastic and very little sheet metal inner fender left on my truck and I haven't had any problems after removing it.
