Gerald, I'm sure you're sorting through tons of emails but I was wondering, of all of us that sent them will we get a yes or no reply, or should we not expect to hear anything unless we get lucky?

(I've been eagerly checking my email all the time and need to know so I can stop this madness)

I know I'm a rarity but I'd LOVE to get rid of the stock shift..that's mostly just because it feels like I couild tear it off by accident..Kind of chinsy feeling.

I have a lot of pages to read lol

On a good note the 30 year fixed is now down below 4.875 so those of you that want to do the responsible thing and refinance to pay to swap in the currie lift and TT and GTS and Corners and Rub Rails and Rock Sliders should do so right now!!

Just checking as I have been in communication with Gerald on this..Gerald do I need to do anything else as an early adopter? aka Beta Tester I can make myself available any day needed to pick up etc

I'm still sorting thru all of them. The short list guys will get an email that they are probably in. The early models and Rubis are being place on separate list for when we get those going they are in line.

For me I would be a few weeks out, but after that I would be dedicated. I'm graduating this weeks and will be gone from the 15-21. But if I had the SYE and DS and uppers I would install them immediately. Not sure how long it would take me, but I would work everyday until it's done.

I will dive head in to install this product. I will give up driving me Jeep for however long I must in order to do what I can to help. I have another vehicle I can drive in the mean time. If I had the required setup now I would instantly volunteer whenever. I have complete faith in your products and am not worried about it whatsoever.

Ah! My motor mount lift uses the stock mounts, but I understand what you mean about the mounting system.

Curses...you guys are killing me. I already built myself a flat belly/engine skid and I still want this for the weight savings. In fact, I want all your products.

Nice work!

Thought of this on the way home from work today today...

Those of us with the JKS BMML (and probably others too) trimmed the studs in the stock motor mounts to accept the little coupling-stud-exteder-thing supplied with the JKS lift blocks. Will that missing 1/4" or so of mounting stud mean we'll need new stock motor mounts to work with your MML?

Blaine-

I don't get over here much these days-or on the computer much anymore for that matter since the move. Nice work-about time! Actually not really-still waiting to see what you end up with for my '05 LJ Rubi so I can ditch the Medic TT/Skid... I'd send a note, but being I don't "qualify" due to my "Rubi" status, I'll keep waiting. Loving your bumper/gas skid so far for the weight savings, still haven't been able to damage either yet... Good stuff. Glad to see things are coming along so well-Great Job! If I can ever get that other house sold, I'll be giving you a hollar for some help with a few things. Hope you're doing well.

Take care, Best of Luck,

Mike ('05TJLWBRUBY from Pirate/ROF)

X2 on this as it is something I didn't think about(senior moment). However I have no problem buying new stock MMs as mine have 112k on them.

Also Gman I would like to add that when you get around to the early models I have a decent shop and I'm mostly retired. I can start as soon as it gets here and stick with it until I'm done.


Thanks

My childish Christmas Eve mentality at the possibility of becoming a tester motivated me to finally give the undercarriage of the Jeep a real cleaning. Amidst the other carnage that I was unaware of, I found that I had landed (obviously extremely hard!) on my Skid Row engine/transmission skid and slid across a rock on it. It did it's job and protected the engine iol and transmission pans, but...

Where the rear edge of the SR skid bolts to the factory belly pan, the factory pan is mangled, twisted, and distorted. There is now less than 1/4" of space between the SR skid and the transmission pan!

I no loger think I would recommend this skid to any one that will seriously abuse it...

Question for Blaine:

I'm pretty sure that you're familiar with the mounting of the Skid Row rockers. Will a body lift make the fitment of them an issue? Not that it would dissuade me from the under armor, I just want to be prepared if I'll need to purchase some Savvy rockers to go with the under armor if I get one.
