For clarity, all of the new UA kits come with the straps and are bolted. The next batch due soon are all built that way. They are no longer welded there as they have proven no robust enough for us.

I'm sending Steve some brackets and he'll install them and report back. This is the feedback we need to make the best possible product out there.

Thanks,

Gerald

As always, Gerald has the best customer service!

Although I did start this thread to show off what I could do to/with Savvy products, it wasn't intended to pull the anti-Savvy people out of the woodwork. Savvy always stands behind their products and I will continue to purchase from Gerald!

You are a smart man!

I don't always take the best lines. I'm usually following someone with a more capable rig so my lines shouldn't be the same as theirs. However, with good spotting, I can and will try almost anything.

You sound like me. Lol after seeing your pics, I'm that much more eager to get out and beat on my rig some more.

Nothing is going to take the abuse and still look untouched. The way I look at it is it's doing the job I wanted protecting everything on the under side!!

I did a lot stupid things like driving directly into a rock and dented my steel bumper too; you still need to know how to drive.

In my neck of the woods, we often wheel with the top up in the off season.

Can't see crap out tinted windows with scratches and the rear bumper takes a beatin.

How true, you know it's going to happen sooner or later.

Day 2 - "Access Road/Walter's Mule Trail" - "Cake Walk" - "Black Sheep"

I ran all those trails last time I was there, except for "Black Sheep Boulevard". That run is legit. I'm heading up there in November, may have to give it a go. That is unless we hit Freelings instead, just down the road.

Way to go, Steve!!!! You'd fit right in here with our bunch. I don't know how I missed this thread but, I know how purdy your heep was and you're using it for what you built it for. Glad I got my AEV/Nth sold and I'm waiting on the UA now.

BTW, we'll be back in Houston after Xmas. Maybe some Italian?
