Nope. I have a BL so it is hard to see where the tub comes down and the bumper actually starts. I was told it was a sinister fab unit but I bought it after they had removed everything from the website and there is no name/sig on the bumper.

You are right, that is what it is. They are no longer available for sale, but I can get my hands on one. They "might" be made available again. I am looking through your build thread now trying to find a side angle.

You are right. That would be very kind of you and I would surely appreciate it.

This would be pretty easy to make depending on how the bottom of it looks .

Yes, there isn't much to it, but alas, I bought one. 3x's as much as I could have made my stereotypical 2x4 bumper, but oh well - the ladies will like it.

In other news did I mention I have all the parts for the flat belly? Cable shifter, check. MML, check. BL, check. Lo-pro, check. Aside from the skid itself, I iz missin sumthin?

Lastly, without making me search, what weight of gear oil do I run with those rubi lockers? I'm going to take off work for my birthday next week and I think I'm going to put my solid diff covers on.

I've been following most of your build thread but can't remember if you have adjustable rears for the pinion angle. Other than that I think you've got everything.

I'm just a few steps behind you - I've got the UCF ultra high, lopro, BL, and savvy upper rears.


Also - not sure how bad the salt is by you but I use fluidfilm twice a year and you wouldn't believe how much of a replant it is for the salt. I sprayed it on a couple weeks ago and I've been DD'ing my jeep and not one nasty piece of salt grime is stuck anywhere to the undercarriage of my jeep. I love the stuff

I use mobil 75w-140 front and rear

Just admiring that bumper again. A Savvy GTS would look mighty fine under there. I know a guy who'll have one for sale in a month or two...
