Would love to see some crash test images. Maybe a picture of the damage, the nature of the impact, etc. While ground clearance is important, there's something to be said for clearance between the skid and the car's vitals too. If a rock/curb/stump hits the skid and the skid hits the oil pan, a/c compressor, etc, then what good was the skid?

I am interested, but can't commit to buying just yet. I would like to see more pictures of it installed if possible. Also, I was going to put on H-sport sway bars (already have them here, just not installed) so if it doesn't work with those that is kind of a downer.
