Default Mix 'n Match Body kits -- help!

I have an 09 is250 and quite like the vertex rear lip, but I like the wald side skirts!
Do / how well do these line up?
I couldn't find a picture of both!
And then I'd likely go wald up front to match the sides.

Anyone with this setup or ideas on if vertex rear and wald sides work together? Don't want one to hang lower than the other by too much etc.

Thanks!

Honestly if you are thinking of going Wald front and sides, Id go with Wald rear also. The Wald kit looks aggressive and the Vertex rear is smooth looking kinda like the GFX rear lip.

What was previously said is true. You want consistent lines/curves on your car. Wald/Ings side look best with wald/ings rear. I've already went through this decision and decided to go with vertex all around.

We know this doesn't answer your question but it's just some thought. To each their own though and no one is stopping you from doing what you want

Yeah it seems like I'll go wald or vertex all around then! Still unsure about my front now... Wald seems like it would be better up front for the poor clearance I get on my roads here?

Thanks guys

Actually in my opinion. The Front and Sides are very important factors when it comes to lip kit. The lines from the front curves smoothly toward the sides making a better Flow Style. The Rears are subjective. You can leave the rear stock and still looks good aslong as you have the 2 main kit F(front)+S(sides).

I also agree with many other that consistency is the key. Either Wald or Vertex all around but not mixing.

Havent seen one yet!

I'm now trying to figure out which sits lower: wald or vertex? I need one with more ground clearance as the roads here suck :/

Thats the deal breaker for now... or if both arent the greatest, maybe something else!
