I was also thinking about putting an R front splitter on my car, I have an '01. I saw this and thought I would ask a quick question. Do you know of any reinforcement kits that I could purchase for the Ford R splitter? I don't really plan on doing any real high speeds at a track or anything, I just don't want to worry about it. I do alot of highway driving at speeds of 65-90 mph for extended periods of time.

Thank you in advance
Jeff
