I just read your whole thread and was looking forward to seen some Metalcloak rear flares mounted on some Savvy corner guards.

Yeah, I'm getting to that eventually... I hit a few snags. Over the next three weeks I plan on getting my Savvy parts installed; I have the sliders, corner guards and taillights just sitting around. I mobilize for Afghanistan on the 28th of this month, so hopefully I'll have time to get it all done. I've also got an ARB compressor and Novak shifter to install, as well as some wiring to finish. What I don't get done will have to wait until I get back.

You are a military man? Didn't know that. Thanks for your service and get that done before you head out. Stay safe.

Yeah, I'm a Marine. Unfortunately, I ended up being activated a week early... Went on orders today, so I never got a chance to finish up the Jeep. I guess that just means I'll have plenty to do when I get back. Assuming the timeline doesn't change more, I should be back in April, and will hopefully get things done then.

Well! It's been a while... I come home from Afghanistan in just two weeks! My dad's been taking care of the Jeep for me while I've been gone... Turns out that the annoying vibe I felt before I left requires a new transmission and clutch to fix!! So... $2800 later, it should drive well when I get home!

bcheung30, you're only a 45 minutes up the road... Shoot me a PM or something if you want to get together to check out the Jeep. Keith moved to Minnesota, so I doubt you'll get to see his!

Stay safe for these last couple weeks my friend. That sucks to hear about the transmission.

Once again, thanks for your service to our country. There is no denying that we are in debt of you (and all service members).

Ah man, I'm jealous! That should be an awesome trip; be sure to post pictures here or on FB when you get back. I'm still hoping to get out there someday...

And I just got an email letting me know that my Jeep is ready, so everything should be fixed and ready to go!
