Happened once, and my car's not even lowered. I don't pull in anymore, I back in.

The bottom of my fascia has several scratches thanks to the end of my driveway. It's also warped maybe a quarter of an inch on one side where I got it pretty good once. Annoys the hell out of me, but I'm the only one that notices.

Oh, so far as how to back out once your over a curb the only thing I can think of is to have a couple of short 2x4's in the trunk. Heck, even a short 1 by 4 would work.

Sorry to hear that buddy, my ride is just too damn low from my coilovers, I love the look but bottom out on the freeways is no fun.

ALRIGHTY! I guess I am a true Dodge Charger owner now that I have scraped the hell out of my fascia. Here's my story, after just buying my 2006 SRT8 with 40k on it I drove it from the dealership lot to Magnaflow Performance and had the exhaust redone and had cold air in-take installed which sat me comfortably around 513hp. Just being a jackass, I pull in to a restaurant(and of course I have to park up front) and I go rite over the curb stop. I back off the curb stop, go through my "WTF did I just do" moment and don't think anything of it. The next day I was going to meet with my father (who drives a Corvette C6) and I'm just hawlin ass, as I was coming up on 95mph I hear a super loud CRACK and then constant scraping.... needless to say the piece is pretty much screwed. It ripped all the clips that hold the plastic to the bumber clean off. I created some hillbilly bolts (by welding lock tight washers on to a nut and bolting the plastic to the bumper where the hole, now slots, are in the plastic and the holes on the bumper) it's a pretty sturdy fix, but still is always on my mind. Is this piece necessary or can I just take it off? Any advice (good or bad) would be much appreciated! Thanks

Do a search on belly pan and you will get some pretty decent info....while it is a good part for the SRT, I know there are plenty (including myself) who do not have one and everything works just fine. Though, I am always on the lookout for a new belly pan.

I knew I was calling it something it was not so thank you for telling me what the part is. The only thing I'm worried about is snow and salt, but I guess I'll have to take it as it comes! Thanks A bunch!

+1. With the roads in my area I would never dream of lowering any vehicle. Just about every ricer I see in my neck of the woods with a body kit typically has the front splitter chewed up or torn off the car. I worry enough about road rash on my paint as is.

Besides, I personally think my car sits perfectly as it is, no lowering kits needed. IMO a muscle car should sit up a little bit, not be slammed to the ground like some ricer.
