I'd bet money that a PW air damn will bolt right on. It looks like the top edge is exactly the same and it will be about 3 inches less on the bottom.

I did this on my 2014 Cummins truck and it covers the entire intercooler just barely and looks significantly better on the truck.

I bought it from Rock Auto for like $75. The 2019 one's aren't available yet but they will be soon, I'd think.

A google search for PW air dam isnt bringing anything up. Is PW short for something?

Are the air dams on a 2wd shorter? I just came over from a 17 super duty. I switched the air dam to a 2wd one that was 4 inches shorter. But I'm not sure if the ram 2wd are shorter

I dont know, but it wouldnt surprise me. There are less components to protect hanging down on the 2WD and one would assume there would be less slop coming toward the front end.

When I extended mine, it was "plowing snow" at times, so I had to drive accordingly. Including steering around rocks.
But it was easy enough to remove and install as needed, just like the factory one.
The newer f-250 6.7's and F-150's hang down ridiculously low.

Ended up driving an F-150 for a week several years ago, when the V6 Ecoboost engine was new. I was impressed by the air dam on that one, which while low was so far back that it didn't affect the approach angle.

Not that the rearward placement would help any with clearance in snow. Meant to make something similar for my 2500, but never got around to it. I should probably cobble something up for the 3500 instead, as it could use all the help it can get in the mileage department.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

'14 1500 V6, '17 3500 C&C, plus a '19 3500 6.4 in the household.
