Haha man...expect a few more today. I'd advise you to only check your thread after work.

How did/do you like the spare mounted tied standing up just inside the tailgate? I have been thinking about going to a lower profile rear bumper and have very little room in the tub while wheeling. Does it feel pretty secure, looks like 4 wracketing straps to hold it in?

It is alright. Takes up a lot of room but it isn't going anywhere. I really want to finish the cage and rig up some sort of external carrier similar to what MO2500 and REDLYNER have. Something that is removable for when I have the top on but I can take it along with on the harder trails as needed.

This weekend was pretty sad for the Jeep. I managed to crack the pitman arm at the splines, striped the stud on my tie rod end to the pitman arm, bent by tie rod (even worse), ripped out the wiring to my front locker and on top of all that I broke the zip ties that held by battery in place.



I basically think my steering setup is trashed from the box down. There is a pretty big bang in it at times when turning while the wheels aren't moving fast. I need to make some decisions now on what I want to do with the front end as a whole. Do I want to replace stuff on a 44 that eventually will get swapped out, upgrade the steering to something that can be transferred to a bigger axle, or sit on the Jeep until I can save up enough to go big.

When are you getting the new axles?

Thanks for the response above. Do you like the rokmen rear bumper? Theirs, genright and a few others all look comparable.

Just do the PSC hydro assist kit with the Savvy parts (you already have the currie steering) and keep on wheelin.

What are your plans for axles? You don't seem to be having any problems with your current setup.

Leaning toward this right now. What Savvy parts would I need? Anyone out there already running this setup?

Just purchased:

Savvy Chromo Tie rod
Currie Drag Link End
PSC SK250 kit but exchanged the cylinder for the 1.5" bore 6" cylinder to connect to the drag link instead
4-Pass Cooler
And Blaines two mounts (axle side and drag link side)

Don't know whether to be excited or not, that was a lot of money.
