You can't go wrong with a savvy GTS. The fit is great and comes with everything needed for the install. Even those Christmas tree thing to reinstall your wheel well.

Alot of folks go this way... If it were me, I would go with another vendor, Metalcloak for one. You'll pay less, you'll get amazing customer service, and you'll get a GTS that uses steel on the bottom (where the majority of your impacts will occur), and aluminum on the sides to save weight. Plus, the MC GTS is 'modular' in that it bolts together, so there are no welds to overstress and fail from hard knocks in the rocks.:

Your call obviously...but I've had experience on polar ends of the spectrum from those 2 companies. Don't have an old grey-bearded knight tell you that "you chose poorly"

Some of my favorite companies to deal with are Poly Performance and Metalcloak, they understand how to run a business. I would not take a Savvy skid if it was free, not because of any flaw with the product but the ridiculous amount of bull**** that accompanies it.

I have purchased something from Savvy and got my part quickly without hassle, that being said something about Metalcloak has me coming back for more. I also had a good experience when I dealt with Poly Performance (but my free t-shirt was the wrong size )

Poly never ceases to amaze me, they run specials all the time, when you call the phone someone answers and is knowledgeable, accurate order updates, easy to work with. I agree Metalcloak is great too, even though I do not need anything right now you want to support a company like the two of them!

Sorry, it was a 34 tooth gear. The guy my brother bought the Jeep from probably went to a 31 when he put the 33" tires on.

Post in the wanted section on the club forum for a 31 tooth.

Rusty762, nice avatar!!!!

Yea there is, I've been posting in it for months. The last 31 tooth that was swapped out was sold instead of shipping price. Oh well. I'll give that a shot Cude.

The local dealer should be able to get one. ..but idk if you know the parts people or not. ..if not, it's probably way too expensive there
