That being said if you can avoid hard slams I have seen this style skidplate take some serious abuse.
The lowest part of my car is actually still the headers by a pinch (the Bavauto headers sit pretty low) but obviously if I was slamming down onto something the front suspension would compress and the plate would hit first.

Links to horror stories? I'd like to read them.
