Trimming my bumper made it a wee bit floppier, and I now I rub a tire when flexing & backing. Never did it before. No biggee, though.

No one has asked the obvious question - how does it affect higher speed fuel economy? Every mod has a trade off.

Fuel economy? We're trying to take this stuff off before it gets torn off. Besides, I haven't seen a perceivable difference with my non aerodynamic setup.

I don't know...is it possible to make a brick less aero dynamic?

The area behind your license plate has a corrugated hard plastic crush zone. The lower area has nothing to worry about. You can use a multitude of cutting tools. Ulility knife, Dremel tool with cut off wheel, Angle grinder with cutoff wheel. Serrated steak knife.
