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...

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?
