As for the wood.... I can't. If there's an emergency I gotta go setup the wood then leave. What size are your wheels? My front bumper is five inches off the ground. I'm going to see if I can get a small lip for the front. [Image: 268951_462015897218351_568637636_n.jpg]

My front lip is 3.5 inches from the ground. I don't scrape too often. Just takes a bit of selective driving.

I might get a lip, I'll see how it all goes. How'd you mount yours on? My friend used 3m tape and then screwed it in on the sides.

Get an sir lip if you want a lip that won't hang down too low. My bumper is about 3" off the ground no lip. If you want to save your lip and not flex your bumper going in/out of your driveway, get some quick release fasteners for your bumper and you'll be able to pop it off and on at your discretion. You can get some good ones from password Jdm for about 30 bucks. They work wonders.

I heard poly urethane lips are really flexible and wont snap in half like carbon fiber ones and such. I've seen these where it holds it in place [Image: 4746_4.jpg] but idk if I'm going to be too big on being low and what not. If anything I'll just get a lip and go sideways. Cause some speed bumps here are to the point where you cant angle or one wheels will be off the ground.

I have a poly lip and those quick release fasteners.

1. A polyurethane lip is great, especially when ur riding low. Very flexible but u have to know what ur doing in order to paint them. Regular paint or spray paint will NOT stick unless u prep it properly. Another thing is fitment, sometimes u have to apply a little heat, ie. blow dryer, to make it fit. Poly doesn't do so good in extreme climates. If it's to cold it will break if bent to far, many below freezing. If it's to hot they tend to warp and will not return to it's original form.

2. Those fasteners are a pain in the ass. The rubber band breaks after jus a few weeks or months. In that pic u posted you'll notice that they're not on that tight, this is because they still have the screws that attach the bumper to the fender. When riding low, especially going in reverse, if ur bumper gets snagged on something the screws in the wheel well will strip out, and the fasteners are a quick and easy solution. Go to ur local hardware store and see if they have something similar so u can have some in the glove box or get some zip ties. Problem with zip ties is they don't flex like that rubber bands would.

Both of these have their pros and their cons. But when trying to ride low the pros make a lot of sense.

Oh and also my catalytic converter sit 1" off the ground and my front lip is 2" off the ground. So scrapping comes daily to me.
