I have a savvy BL and it was really easy to install the two spacers under the grill.

Nice. I should've gotten those when I added my lift but I didn't have the cash so I just reused my factory ones.

Appreciate it. Be sure to do the chalk test and figure out a proper air pressure to drive at.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.
