Default Cervinis Cobra R front bumper, help!

I have a 2002 GT that has been lowered, i'm wanting to buy a Cervinis Cobra R front bumper. Now, i live out in the country so the roads aren't the best. So will the Bumper be to low and hit every little thing when i go up a hill or hit a bump?? Please let me know if you have this exact setup and how it works for you! Thanks!

How much has your car been lowered? What springs are you using?

Here is a picture of one and looks like they don't have much clearance. I personally don't care for them but it's your car.

How low are you? What springs are you running?

I'm dropped 2" on Eibach Sportlines - stock GT bumper with a Mach 1 chin spoiler; pulling up to curbs or entering/exiting driveways where an incline is involved without hitting or scraping can be challenging at times. Haven't seen very many Cobra R bumpers in person (or paid much attention the few times I have), but going by pictures that bumper looks to hang lower than what I have by at least an inch or two. From the center of my bumper below where the license plate goes, I have about maybe 8" of clearance; less than that as the bumper goes out toward the wheels. And like I stated, the Cobra R bumper appears to hang even lower than what I've got, so I would expect on a lowered car that not bumping stuff with it may be an impossible task.

Nah dude I don't do that liberal/leftist garbage. As far as the parallels drawn between being a liberal and living in California goes, I think that issue has been confused - I find that most people are either uninformed or are single issue voters, rather than the militant liberals like you see on tv which I semmingly never run into in real life. It is always entertaining to see their arguments broken and philisophical hipocracy exposed though. Aside from the Bay Area and a few other isolated pockets they are seemingly concentrated in, I find most people to be at least leaning toward the right around here.

Ok well on that note we are good then. Speaking of our fearless leader is coming to visit a Amazon warehouse in Chattanooga, Tn today. I'm sure he will have a great welcoming from us Tennessee folks check out the link below.

Yeah good ol' President Robin Hood - stealing from the productive to give to those who won't produce for themselves. You a Mark Levin listener? Look him up, there's probably a station in your area that carries his show - real good informative stuff there. He's also on Sirius if you have that.

Right now I'm enjoying watching Obamacare fail miserably before it's even implemented, and how he squirms as he's still trying to sell it. Case in point, even the Obamacar call centers that are currently readying to go online in October have decided to cut back jobs that were originally advertised as full time to now part time positions to avoid the cost of providing healthcare to the employees, looool haha. He used to belive his own lies, now it's at the point where he's backed himself into a corner and I can tell by the look on his face and tone of his voice that he just wants the next 3 years to hurry up and pass by so it can be someone else's mess.

And sorry 'bout the threadjack OP, we'll stop now. Unless of course you'd like to contribute to the conversation....
