I would be worried about the rod butt inches off the ground

 

A roof rack for that car!  LOL

It’s measured to be 9 inches off the ground, same as the lowest part of the bumper

I've seen dozens of rods sheared off over the years with low mounted front racks, up to six at once. Be aware of any rod butt protruding at the bottom. Many ways to circumvent the situation with a little thought.

Rod guides should face the rear so they don't hook low hanging tree branches.  PVC will bugger up non-metallic reel stems, consider a Fernco rubber coupling or notched radiator hose at the top of your PVC rod holder tubes.
