        Steve and other folks,  The air dam I had, (before the plastic cracked)
was great for driving, but it was a pain to try to jack up the Tiger
from the front.  I use a small cheap hydralic jack that requires about
5 1/2" to get under anything.  The air dam was around 3" from the ground.
The jack wouldn't fit.  Had to jack up from the side a bit before I could
put the jack under the front cross member.  My frame modification is
such that I do not use the original Tiger Jack in the square holes
under the bumper.  In any case they were covered by the air dam.
