minor technicality, thats not a "lip" its a splitter or also called a "canard"

also they dont use those adjustable rod ends for adjustability its actually so you dont have to be very precise in your design. it makes it easy to do, loosely.

Lastly, you dont want it so low that when braking, it stops airflow under the car. take a look at the IMSA cars or challenge cars, the middle of the splitter is actually about an inch higher than the outsides. it looks like the splitter is slightly frowning, to allow air under the car when the nose dives downwards.

Lip, splitter, chin, valance what ever it may be i apologize for my poor choice in words..

I like the way they look which is why i ask

But the truck is not low enough that air will not go under it to affect the brakes.

Just thought i would ask since there are a few guys that make adjustable rear wings for the tailgate and it would be nice to have matching front "splitter"
