    Is anyone making/selling a replacement Carbon Fiber Splitter without the rods?

    I saw some pics of PWoody but nothing on their website but splitter protectors and hoods.

    I was in the market for one as well. However I was told that the those rods were required to hold the splitter together and to make it more secure. I really like the fact the these carbon spliiters cover and protect the entire surface area of the OEM splitter.

    My local shop, where I get my tints Etc has volunteered to install it without the rods, however the manufacturer Insists the rods be installed for the reasons mentioned earlier. I guess it's wait and watch. Or maybe I might just buy the kit and Chuck the rods or keep it away in case I decide to use them later on.

    I've seen these in person. The rods are a must and if you look at the physical elements, it's very clear that the splitter needs them. At speed there will be a good deal of aerodynamic down-force on the splitter and the rods are the PRIMARY support at that point.
    Physics over cosmetics, folks.

    Thats true but the rods make the HC look like a ricer. I have seen Evo's/bmw's/Honda and tons of other mobile grocery carts rock those rods.

    Those rods look like those chrome bling rappers grill in front...LOL!!!! Nothing wrong with it just my opinion anyways.

    I think the bwoody Carbon splitter protector is the perfect solution however they are perperually out of stock. They are of the same dimensions as the OEM shipping/delivery yellow protectors.

    Bump... just curious if there have been any new (non-rods) CF splitters developed yet.

    Is the entire splitter carbon? Or just the protectors? Could you be so kind enough as to post some additional pics? Looks awesome.

    Bwoody said they are no longer making the Carbon Fiber Splitter or kit. Anyone else making Carbon Fiber Splitter WITHOUT the rods?

    The entire splitter and back diffuser are carbon fiber. Like Good2go says above - I think they may be catching up on fulfilling current orders before taking any more. Less frustration.
