That sounds pretty much to a 'T' what I have on my car. The rubber is
very firm, but still flexible/curb-proof. The End caps are square on two
sides but they round up at the end to finish it off nicely. The mounting
hardware is metal screws/bolts with *plastic* nuts. None have broken
ripped in my 'endurance testing' (Curbs/parkinglots, nose divets on dirt
roads, deep snow etc). It hangs down a little more than 2 inches
(guessitmate from memory - but 2 & 3/8's sounds right). For $69.95, I'd
say it's worth it. It should last forever. HTH, FWIW.

a generic "Low-profile Front Air Dam/Spoiler"
(for all vehicles) that looks very much like the
one that was on Sarge's 200TQ when he bought it.

caps that allow you to taylor its length for any
application. It's 2 & 3/8ths inches tall, and goes
for $69.95.

what you're looking at.
