Just set it out on a flat surface for a couple of hours on a hot day. It'll return to its original shape.

just do it.....im usually pretty un-shocked by parts i buy as i usually know pretty well why im buying something

this one was a shocker...not that it works...but how well it works and does so much for so little

GREAT bang for the buck mod and its easy to install

pure no brainer, for sure

i can slide under the car and easily change the oil and filter without any problem....THAT is how high the front of my car is now

and likely why it made such a huge difference, too

n0-nO-N00000ooooooo....the one i got was in a full size box and was 100% take it out of the box and bolt it up right up.....AND 'installation hardware included'.....even if it was just a few self tapping screws and 4 pop-its....that's better than nothing and i DID use the screws, with ss washers that i supplied.

im glad i used the 3m double sticky tape too...maybe sealing it well along its whole lenght to the bottom of the bumper made it work better and not let air force its way between the lip and the bottom of the bumper...dunno....but i did it and would do it again

Mine came in a full size box too and was pretty close but had one of the tabs slightly bent(ups sucks). I set it outside on my balcony for a couple of hours in the sun and it returned to its original shape. I think I paid like $70ish for mine. Good bang for the buck.

All the mad ITT.

Glad you like your lip, Scotty! I'd love to see some pics, as most people don't take the time to install properly/well.

Hey Snotty, I"ve got some advance intel on some new things they're calling "mud flaps", apparently they help keep dirt of the side of your car. Maybe you could check into those next and let us know what the deal is.

I bought mine of ebay and it came folded up in a box. I just took a blow dryer to mine. The blow dryer was enough enough to get it nice and warm with out over heating. I straightened up quite nicely.

I also helped a friend with his. We just sat it in the sun on the drive way while we did some other things and it straightened out nicely as well, but then again, the Texas sun does have it's own ways.

Could you at least give us the seller's eBay user name? If I were to buy one I would like it to arrive not all twisted up in a box like everyone else is saying. Thank you
