WHere did you get that TR flip kit and how much is it? I remember seeing on 'Truck's!' they did a flip on an XJ but forgot what they used.

The tie rod flip comes from Blaine. You need to call or PM him to get the sway bar link brackets and knuckle inserts. The tie rod also comes from Blaine. In my case, it came from Will for a smokin' deal since he no longer has a jeep. Neither are listed on Savvy's website.

I don't think I need any more motivation than that to try and achieve a flat skid. I'm determined to do the same now

Some more pictures.....

Just showing the clearance

Look how low the transfer case sits

Muffler to skid clearance....perfecto

Exhaust mount and cat-to-skid clearance

Front of skid to again show how low the transmission sits

Transmission mount bolts. Replace the grade 5 washers with grade 8's so they don't cave.

Another frontal

Side pictures




YJ style. The shifter console gets in the way and is annoying. If anyone wants a black one, PM me. It will come with upper boot.

My cup holders are still there.....I've got the removable cup holder insert and it press fits into the rear most cup holder on the center console.

I saw that the other day. I want to junk my center counsel for something that locks, doesnt have the subwoofer, and holds my Glock. The Tuffy ones are too pricy. An ammo can would work, but I would have to make some cup holders. I cant wait to see the new hood on.

Just got home. I drove about 800 miles this weekend so I'm pretty beat. The Jeep was reliable as always and drove there, to and from Golden Mountain, and back home in classy fashion. I'd highly suggest checking out Golden Mountain but don't even think about it if you still have stock steering, stock diff covers, and no steering or oil pan/engine skid. You'll use them all A LOT. Thus far, that tie rod is unbendable. I put it in a couple spots where I think I would have tweaked the Currie rod, which I've already done twice. Even with 18" under the tie rod, I still managed to hit it good a few times. The drag link got a great workout as well, so keep that in mind. Overall, it was a great trip. Thanks to John boy for the sleeping arrangements and the hood...had a good time man. Now to bed so I can wake up in the morning to hit the junk yard before work with Rod. I need to pick up a new driver's side knuckle since I made a little boo boo on the TR flip insert install....nothing major. I'll do a write up this time for those of you interested.
