If this has been asked sorry. This thread is 46 pages by the time I caught up with it. I live up in Ma and I know aluminum doesn't rust but with all the salt and snow and temps here would the bare aluminum get messed up? If not I SOOOOO want one of these skids!

It will turn flat but it would be fine. You would probably be best served by coating with a good self etching primer and a shot of paint and it will last in your winters no problem.

Will your TT work with a 1" BL, I just got mine in the mail today but have not installed it. Should I exchange for a 1.25" BL? I didn't want to go any higher than needed.

BTW I just finished installing my SAVVY corner gaurds this weekend, the only problem I had was finding the correct size drill bit for the riv nuts, 17/32 bits are impossible to find. I found a non-stepped tappered bit from Harbor Freight that worked perfect, set of 3 was only $15.

The 1.25" BL is the way to go with our TT. It will be a lot easier to move everything up.

Go info on the drill bit. The 17/32 bit I have is the so sharp when it bites it really messes up things. A tapered bit is cool. You only have to tape off to your size and away you go. A lot easier than my 17/32" bit.

Thanks,

Gerald

If you think 17/32 bits are hard to find, try getting a 34/64ths sometime.

Another bump for an estimated release date on the 97-02 TT. Last time I asked I think you said end of the year. Is that still possible? Of course you didn't say what year, dang those pesky details that I forget to ask......

Thanks

They're probably kept with the 2/4 and 6/8 bits...

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

Even with the 1.25"BL are we going to have issues fitting if we have one of the aftermarket linkage adapters on the top of the TC?
