Regarding side-skirt placement, would it be better to push the skirts out to where the outer edge of the wheel is, or just wherever is convenient?
They have quite a long over hang on the rear behind the wheels correct? I've driven my fair share of lowered vehicles, and yes you do drag bottom on gravel roads, but if you drive on one side of the crest it's fine. I've never had problems with hitting the ground.

No, not an especially long overhang but longer than most compact cars. The exhaust will scrape in the middle of the car though. Alot of it is the way they make curb-cuts around here like a big mound so when the car is partway out of the parking lot, you are sitting with both tires on either side of a large hump.
