UPDATED -- So I finally got the L-brackets and saved the money to buy some lawn edging after losing my second job, I got the new lower air dam installed and I like the way it looks, however I need to add some filler to offset the contour of the lower part of the bumper, I have it about 1.25 inches off the ground with me in it, 20% of my drive it will scrape, but that number goes to about 60% with the rest of my family in the car, so I am debating on letting it just wear off the lower lip or cut it off for another 3/4" of clearance.


Staying Focus'd on MPG

I think that is too low, try for 2 inches of ground clearance.

Hey another member from the Ozarks! Of course, Ozark Missouri is really flat compared to the moutains down here in Harrison ��
