I'm adding this in case it might help anyone else.

To de-pressurize the fuel system, I pulled out the fuel pump relay in the fuse panel under the hood, and turned the key like I was going to start the Jeep. It fired for a second, and then died. I had a couple of drops come out when disconnecting. After installing, I replaced the fuel pump relay and keyed the ignition on and off a few times to pressurizize (Bushism) the fuel system, and it fired right up and ran great.

Like I said, I added this, because I don't have a Factory Service Manual, and it was the only thing I could think of, and it might make someone else's life easier.

I am just wondering if anyone has tried one of these with the RE Tri-link rear setup? I am in the market for one because my 01 has the worst stock skid ever...it is completely open on the sides unlike my 02 which is closed in and I am concerned about clearance issues.

You can't be first, but you can be next!

I don't know about the RE Trilink but we have many peopleusing our skids with triangulated 4 link suspension. In fact, they like our skid better because they are able to shift the axle back more than the others.

Yes... I'm running the RE Truss, but I have it mounted on top for my Diff instead of at the face Pic Here... I can't find the other Savvy install pics right now, but I had one of the before and after clearance between my Kilby GTS and the Savvy GTS... the Savvy had better clearance by a noticeable amount



I can take some other pics if you had specific things you wanted to see, but I wouldn't worry one bit!

Some savvy clearance sexiness

This is with 16" lowers on a D44 tilted back far enough to adjust the pinion with a 4" lift and Tera Belly Skid (Equal to 6.5"+ of total drive line lift.)

Just enough room for the diff to stuff all the way up there

well, the

I want your factory 07-up take-off/thrown out JK front/rear Lower Control Arms! Bent ones are perfect also as long as the bushings and cold cut rings are in good shape/useable

I installed the Savvy GTS over the summer and it has been fantastic. I don't do any hard core wheeling like Blaine and Gerald do, but so far I have only been able to put small scratches and one little dent in mine. Now I need a BL (among other things) so I can tuck the skid up a bit more.

With a 97-02 you should be able to raise it up without the body lift. The extra junk on top of the 03-06 TJs prevent this from happening. On my old 97 I had an EMP skid that raised the tank up an extra inch with no issues whatsoever.
