Not only sick, but gaunt as well.

I'm really hoping Xmas is good for me. Hopefully I'll be able to give you guys a call to place an order.

First installation of a production Savvy front bumper 19.8 lbs as pictured. That's almost a pound lighter than stock!

Cool thing: The winch deck has two positions. One for stock sway bar as shown and one further back (to protect the fairlead) when used with a Currie Antirock or like product.

Here you can see both mounting positions

I had wondered about how that would be handled. Nice job and congrats!

I hope that "like product" is going to be a Savvy dual rate swaybar. Holding off on a Swayloc in anticipation of that.
