Default Yeah, it's pretty low.

I figured I'd to the cigerette-carton-height-gauging pic with my recently added S14 bumper. It's a little lower than I thought...




...so, it's a little low there. Poor Joe couldn't stand up straight, and you can see the repairing of previous curb encounters. Wait though, It gets worse:



I've got to slow down a LOT for most driveways and sometimes even attack them on a considerable angle. I can pretty much forget about driving on to any grass. I only have the bumper held on by 4 zipties, so when it pops off I can toss it in the back

so where are the JDMs. I think they would look great with that bumper. Just a little low for my taste but I like the shape compared to the rest of the car.

HA HA Looks like the cigs crushed the bumper in the 2nd pic I do like the bumper though. Any plans on some skirts or rear bumper to tie it all in?

I love everything you've done with the car with the RWD conversion and everything, but that bumper kills your car.

RWD conversion + S14 bumper held on by zip ties = drifter?

Maybe

Mitch - I think it matches the lines of the car pretty well, but I'm not wild about the light cutout things and the sunken license plate deal. I'm probably just going to run this bumper until it gets completely destroyed (well on its way) and then either put back my outback bumper or go to a factory Kouki S14 bumper. That also means no sideskirts or rear bumper unless you count mudflaps and diffuser I also want to add a 2nd Gen RX7 oil cooler, but I might have to mount it externally with the GTR bumper. If I end up doing 17x9 wheels, this bumper and external oil cooler the car may be approaching the summit of Bosozoku hill.

I'd offer to do driveway plowing but RWD sucks in the snow...
