i've got lovell superlows on mine, no skirt on the front, and wouldn't want one! :? mines ok now, as the scuff plate is the only thing that scrapes now - but with a skirt, it wouldn't have much paint left anymore!

It will work fine providing you never have to turn into a driveway/carpark, go over speed bumps or put a decent trolley jack under your car ever again.

I've got Ultra's in mine, with the front lip, and its not too bad, once you know how to drive it, with it being low.
There were more startches under the lip when i bought it, than what i'll ever put there, and i lowered it a few inches.

thats the biggest thing - every now & then someone else drives mine & they have no idea how to tackle speed bumps etc & what speed the car can take certain objects - once you know how to drive your own car with it low you'll know what can & can't be done :wink:

Yeah i know how you feel about letting other people. I let my old man have a drive and he hits speeds humps at 20km/h, whereas i basically stop at them and idle up them.
