New gas tank skid plate... can you say aluminum?
 
2 Attachment(s)
I just found these two pics of the newly announced and very cool aluminum skidplate from Savvy Off Road that I'll be installing within the next week or two. It'll be replacing my 11 year old tired and thoroughly abused steel Tomken skidplate and not a moment too soon. I can't wait. :drool:

You know, I had a dream about something like that... :teehee:

So Jerry, how much for your old skids? I would Love to have a piece from your Jeep put onto mine. Give me that extra boost offroad lol

While awesome in it's own right, I don't have the bones to ditch my Kilby for this right now, I would in a second if I was still OEM and was in the market for a new one.

You know what else would be pretty awesome is fenders or corner armor, etc made out of this same grade AL material... that I might be more in the market for in the future (with tweaked front fenders and no corner armor now).

Looks like a great product though!

I like how it will adapt in clearance with a body lift without modification.

31lbs... holy crap. And only $50 more than Rokmen's? I think I have a new job for the UPS man. :D

Going to have to grab some self-etching primer, clear coat and black paint for it though... I'm not a fan of the whole bare look.

Yours is sitting in the shop right beside Jerry's. Gerald has a trip to Moab he's leaving for on Monday, so that's kinda put a damper on getting these shipped out to the beta folks.

Nice lookin' skid.

Is Savvy looking for a YJ beta tester? :D

NewLaw83 05-09-2009 03:10 PM

You're more than welcome to paint or powdercoat it. The nice thing about that is when you scratch it, you don't have to worry about it rusting. Can you tell I hate rust with a passion?

The 50 dollar difference is only in the raised position. If you have a stocker without a body lift, there's a small matter of a set of spacers that has to be acquired. ;)

Blaine, I just noticed your new sig. :laugh:

I just caught on....Blaine, you're a freakin badass. If I hadn't just gone with Rokmen for my skid, I'd take one of yours. I may know a few people who want one though.....

Thanks. We have to keep it a bit cool until Gerald gets us signed up for vendor status.
