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.
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!
I have a steel gas tank skid and steel UA skids and both are damaged like those in the pictures after my first trip on them. I even have a crack in the weld in about the same location. 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.
I was able to test out all the Savvy products that I installed last month for the first time. I put the armor through some of the toughest trails at Green Acres in Clayton, OK. Here are the trails that we ran.
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.

How about this, if you had the Jeep Spirit, you wouldn't abuse the rest of us trying to enjoy a nice day out wheeling by bringing your brokeass broken down junkyard crap out to play where it can't handle it?[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=JeepForum123;13578398]you all have nice rigs, stop being f****** a**holes.[/QUOTE]
John Currie and Blaine taught me ease up to the obstacle and when you hit it back up and drive around it. If you every get a chance to wheel with those guys, watch how smooth they are in the rocks. It still amazes me when we go wheeling. They drive around the rocks and I bash into them.
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?
For those who have fought for it, FREEDOM has a taste that the protected will never know."
