    Rub me Not

    Thought I'd throw this out there for discussion.

    In a few weeks we will be moving to Alabama however; the new house is bring some new challenges. The house sits up on a significant hill and the driveways are very steep. Last weekend we did the home inspection and had both my Tacoma TRD Off Road and my wife's 428Cic at the house and they both scraped the concrete when entering. The truck is running 31" tires and the trailer hitch scraped on the way up. The four scraped the belly pan when pulling in to the other drive. Not to worried about the truck but do have concerns about the ZHP and the 428. Note; the ZHP and 428 are both at stock height.

    Does anyone deal with a similar situation and what's your solution?

    No, it's more of the transition from the crown of the road and the significant angle of the driveway.

    Will approaching the bottom of the driveway at an angle not help?

    Approaching from a steep angle is the only thing I can think of.

    Thanks guys! And no I don't have any pictures and it's very hard to show elevation with photographs.
