This is the first summer I've had the headers on the car. I've scraped them a couple of times and had one major impact only going a mile or two out of a parking lot that had a bad lip at the exit. Ouch! I didn't wreck anything but it didn't sound very good.

I'm thinking of making a new set of headers this winter out of stainless with a few modifications to make them fit better with more ground clearance. It shouldn't be too hard if I go bythe Super Comps that are on the car and adjust them to suite my needs.
I have to drive a mile of rocky dirt road each way to leave my house. That's my biggest issue. Just crawling thru sections trying not to screw the headers up. Just not worth the headache and potential issue of catching them on something far from home.
