Anyone put one on an early is front? I have 3 or 4 Volvo lips in my garage, but I'm not sure about installing one because it would be REALLY low. I'm stock height and still scrape every now and then.

i think if you trimmed the mounting side a little it might work.. maybe just a little more effort than the later front valence..
