The Genright tank does nothing for you unless you plan on stretching your wheelbase. Don't go getting ahead of yourself here. The Savvy GTS is what you want, need and best of all when and IF you ever grow out of it.... will have awesome resale value.

Very true about the Savvy GTS, and it's probably what I'll go with do to price. But having the 24.5 gallons of the the Genright extended range gas would be a nice upgrade from my current 15 gallon tank.

Haha, I totally missed the point of why you posted it. Sorry man! Was just assuming you were looking at the "stretch" tanks. Never even knew about an extended range tank. For me.... the extra weight of the gas even would be a .

I have the Savvy GTS . The fit and finish is amazing , and you will rarely hit it after its installed . A little more capacity would be nice , especially when you are getting away from it all . I just dont know if the additional cost is worth it .

To be honest it wouldn't be worth it. The Savvy GTS is $329, the Genright tank and skid is $999. With the $670 saved by going with the Savvy GTS, I could modify my my current tank to 18 gallons and buy a couple of Jerry cans. Then use whats leftover for gas or other mods. It's nice to dream though.

My clicky finger is feeling itchy. Morris 4x4 Center has the Best top trek top NX for $550 with free shipping. So tempting...

Well I am in a reasonable mood. It would be amazing to have a soft top for the summer. Just need to find a place for the hard top...

I bought my top from Morris 4x4 . Nice folks to deal with . Sadly the best place to store a hard top is on a Jeep .

Sad but true. I've got a few ideas, but I need to run them by parents. Honestly that's why why I haven't pulled the trigger on this killer deal yet. Need to make sure I can actually store the hard top before I go buying a soft top.

X2!!! My savvy GTS is my favorite mod. Having stock coils and 31s it's so much of a difference out on the trails with it tuck up.

Well poop. The heads and gaskets for the truck won't be here till early next week, which ruins my plan for doing the swap over the weekend. Anyone doing anything fun this weekend?

Well I've got a Trektop NX on order, and the best part is I didn't pay a cent! I started showing it to my Parents and before I could finish they were asking if I want it for my birthday. So of course I said hell yea! However I honestly think it's self serving on there part, considering they were more excited about it than I was!
