Nobody deserves this Jeep more than you do. I was happy to lend a hand when I got the chance and I'm excited to see it all buttoned up. I should be up there sometime this week to check it out and to also watch, learn, and drool over Mike's front end overhaul

I love the Black and Orange together

We put the winch rope on yesterday, I'll get a picture of that later and post it up and we added a Best Top Headliner under the soft top to help keep it cooler this summer.

I need to finish the detailing and re-pack all of my gear in the back.

I am so grateful that mrblaine knows how to build amazing Jeeps, his expertise on suspensions design, brakes and steering systems creates a really smooth ride and a Jeep that handles well, drives true and doesn't have any bad habits. I'm one lucky girl!

I want to send a special Thank you to Joe, Mike and Collin who donated some of their time to working on my Jeep. And special Thank You to Ricky for the cool new stuff, I love all of it.

And to Andrew for selling me some of the brightest lights ever!

SavvyOffRoad.com makes the best bolt-on Aluminum products, and my Jeep thanks me for not overloading my suspension and drive train. Heavier parts cause more wear and tear. I wanted a light and nimble Jeep. I got just what I asked for
You are more than welcome Kat. It was a true pleasure helping out whenever I could.

One thing I have got to mention is that I am truly impressed by how clean and well maintained your TJ is. Every nut, bolt, fastener, etc was a breeze to work with which greatly attributes to things going smoothly.

WOW!

I came in here to see better pics of the bumper corners and ended up reading all 28 pages.

Nice to put a face, well... err a Jeep to the lady that answers the phone when Blaine doesn't and ships me all of my stuff.

Beautiful Jeep, I'll have to keep my wife out of this thread. LOL!

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

I hope this makes sense. I already have my winch and bumper mounted and don't really want to pull it off so I can run wires thru the bumper's aluminum deck.

Loving the build but I just got in crap from the wife. When I ordered some stuff from Savvy earlier this year (Novak Cable shifter and a shirt) there was a lip smackers in it. Thought someone had dropped it in the box by accident so I chucked it.
I is sad now. Next time I know better

I can't speak for what Blaine did there. But I ran mine through the bumper. Wasn't really hard. Didn't have to remove the bumper.

I see the rear shocks were outboarded, but how were they attached at the axle? Any pics?

I skimmed through the thread but couldn't find the information.

I just bought what I believe are those same lights. I was curious as to how they are mounted. Are they bolted to the bumper or rear cross-member? I have a 1" body lift and thought I could bolt them to the lip on the tub that sticks down, but the lights are just a tad too tall to fit.

EDIT: I just reviewed this thread and saw post #384. It looks like they are bolted to the tub. Is that correct?
