I know the Savvy is more.... but when you consider the weight savings against a full steel aftermarket skid... it's easy to cough up the extra. At least IMO. Keep it light and low.

Not to mention that shipping is less on lighter goods... and if you call Gerry, I'm sure he would be willing to drop the price from 350 to something a bit more affordable.

It costs incrementally more but believe me, it's money that once you have it in hand, you realize just why it's a bit more expensive.

Oddly enough, everything I ever ordered from Gerry, I ordered from 2300 miles away in Louisiana. Tank skid, rear bumper & tie ins, currie springs, AR, CAs, rs9000xls, trac bars etc. Couple hundred lbs of stuff, and he still made me deals that nobody else could match, even locally lol

No I just taped it all off and had rags covering the axle itself.

some flex pictures, I have no more down or up travel. My bumpstop is touching just before my shock collapses(looks eh because the highline now) and the rear is tucked. Once I outboard I hope to gain more up travel and the same down in the front. The rear, I hope to gain more down. Right now im 4" up in the front and 6" down. I hope to get 6/6" front. The rear im 4/5" and I hope to get 6/6 with longer bumpstops.

Completely switched up my purchasing.

So far I have ordered:
Poison Spyder Comp Stinger
1" budget JKS MML
Flat barnes 4wd tcase skid
UCF lo-pro tcase mount
Ford Shock Towers(4)
14"/12" Travel Bilstein 5125(bought from a friend)
^I know I cannot utilize all 14" for the front shocks, so I bought limiter straps as well
GenRight GTS

Haven't checked on this build in awhile. You've made some nice progress. I'm jealous of your christmas list! Did you have MT/R's at one point?
