Haha I know I really want to get all this Savvy/Currie goodness on the jeep before the academy. Because I'll be slammed come June. The flag looks awesome but it was the trackbar that fixed my steering play. Haha.

Been reading up on Currie/Savvy lift installs where they say to not worry about arm length as much as angles. Thinking I want some help to get everything installed the way it's supposed to be.

I just finished this up. You can check it out in my build thread.First thing I'm going go tell you is throw the tape measure in the toolbox until the very end.

It's stupid simple really. Set everything to where it clears and works. That's all that matters.

Hey guys. Sorry for the lack of updates. I got hired with a great fire department as a career firefighter. I have been in the academy since June 3rd and I get out August 30th. My income greatly increased so I will be getting my own house and will have some more money for the jeep. My savvy/currie lift still is sitting in my garage. I have been driving the jeep to the academy every day and don't want to get halfway through the install and not be able to finish it. Will be installing sometime in September and plan to go wheeling shortly thereafter. I have had the four wheeling itch for quite some time. But again I didn't want to risk breaking anything. When my job depends on my daily driver. Let me know if anyone would like to come over and help with the lift install. Beer and pizza will be provided. I will choose some weekend in September to do it all.

Let me know when you choose a date to install. I might be up for wrenching on someone else's jeep after everything I've been doing to my own.

How's the academy going?

Definitely will let you know. And the academy is going outstanding. I have learned a lot, lost weight, gained muscle, and gotten better at running, pull ups, and push-ups. Made a lot of new friends in my recruit class. And when we aren't on the clock we are all hanging out having a good time. Can't wait to get back under the jeep though.

Haha it's going awesome. Done with the academy, moved out of my parents house into my own place with a kid from my recruit class and my girlfriend. Trying to plan a weekend soon to install my currie lift kit.
