Errrrr.. I made a template using cardboard. I then used u-nuts, bolts and washers to secure them to the fenders.

I've been told this is overkill but they haven't budged since I put them on two years ago.

How much ground clearance?

As much or as little as you want, lol. There's no specific place to put them on the fenders, per say. Hence the template. I just put the template up to the fender and found a location I liked. I don't scrape on anything if that's what you're worried about :p so it's definitely avoidable with the right positioning.

Inch from the ground you will scrape going over bumps and anywhere you turn. Try to stay around 2.5-3 inches at least.

Mine are about an inch off the ground in front (but I'm lowered a bit) and they only scrape on steep driveways and if you corner ridiculously fast. I like how they're close to the ground. And also I just used zip ties to attach mine. They've held on for almost a year and I've had no problems. Survived a Midwest winter too so it's plenty strong enough.
