I think he was referring to some of us Savvy "Fan-boys" and our posts in all your threads...but I could be wrong...

he is talking about how luckrider kisses your guy's asses constantly, and talks for you like he is an employee. Maybe he is just 18 and doesnt know when to shut his pie-hole, or maybe he is the "insider" to savvy off road.



Call me a fan boy then too, i love blaines work. I know only what i read on here, and if someone asks savvy a question, ill let one of those 2(?) boys answer for themselves.

I really like the rails on the corner armor. When will those be for sale for a TJ?

I still understand the strength issues, etc. and I'm not questioning you. Merely wondering where the logic is in that.

The LJ looks great. Could probably just scuff up the chrome and hit it with some krylon flat black if you're really lazy.
The logic doesn't have to be good, it just has to be mine.

I won't use lower arms with jam nuts at both ends. I don't like that they loosen, I don't like that they have a hang point at the transitions from link to joint, I don't like the expense of threading both ends, nor do I like the diameters of the aluminum needed to get the job done.

The only reason to use aluminum is for looks and that ain't gonna happen.

Hopefully a couple of weeks. They work great! Most of all they really finish off the corner install. Only a couple of bolts are visable once you install the tub rail.

They have been on the production back burner the longest and are now a top priority we need to get cleared up. I expect to be done with the details on my end in a couple of days and after another set of prototypes they will go into production shortly after that.

2-3 weeks or less depending on how backed up our laser cutter is.

Nope, not for looks in the slightest. I have yet designed a product that I ever intended to be left unfinished.

I use lots of aluminum for weight reduction. I use stainless when I want corrosion resistance when you scratch the PAINT. I use none of it because it's supposed to be left bare or unfinished.

There's a pic of a front bumper running around here that one of our customers sent out and had powdercoated. By far my favorite.

You get the same offer as the last guy. Tell me how many miles are showing on the odometer on my 99 TJ when the key is on and I'll ship them right out.

You get one guess.

It will be tough to beat me. I was the closest, and still wrong.

Gerald, looks like you have to continue explaining what savvy makes.
That's what Gerald is going to have me for. I ended up hanging out with Gerald all day Friday at KOH and became basically a Savvy Salesperson. I got pretty good at it with the little I know. Because I live kind of close to them and have an open schedule I can make things work. I hope to be able to help them out more in the future. I had fun talking to the people.

The LJ is basically what I think I will end up doing to my Jeep at the final of that stage. After that it would be HP D60's and 40's. Where that Jeep is setting with all the Savvy products, 4" of lift and 35's would be right up my ally.

I've got my bumper on right now, just winged the install, and love it so far! Maybe at one point I'll get around to putting some kind of coating on it. I'm thinking just painting it black, maybe silver.

FYI Gerald, I can't make EJS. I will be in Europe at the time.
