I'm feeling pretty savvy

Hey all, I just installed my new savvy aluminum gas tank skid and just felt like sharing. I've been really impressed with it. Not only is it light, but with the one inch BL it tucks away nicely. Next is an aluminum belly up skid... *hint hint

getting ready to install


a look at the "before" stage


no more gas tank. Note, if you're installing this skid, when you disconnect the gas line and hoses from tank, be careful on the older models, the fittings get a bit fragile, though, that said, it probably wouldn't hurt to replace some of the hoses and fitting while you've got it all out.


with savvy skid


another angle

Nice! I'm quietly waiting for their belly skid and aluminum corners too, hopefully!

Haha, amen! Some light armor is definitely worth the wait, and I'm sure that when Blaine and crew design it you know it'll be reliable
