Another concern I have is that the clearance to the ground is probably much reduced.

Thanks in advance!
I did not lift the car but it was a tight fit for me. It would be easier if the car was lifted though.

I never had mudflaps but Romik did say that you do not need to remove them. Mudflaps are my next purchase.

Ground clearance did drop about 3" but the running boards are still not any lower than the front and rear axles of the vehicle.
