I was wondering about that too. It seems to me that I read at one time his TT wouldn't fit on the LJ. I hope I am wrong on that though. Hopefully MrBlaine will clear that up for us.

From what Gerald said (iirc) there will only be 2 different TT kits. There will be one for the 97-2002, and then one for 03-06. The TJ and LJ ones will be the same, the only difference is the different years. That is of course only if I am recalling what he said correctly.

We can usually always get more out of Gerald. We need to get him around to start leaking more info.

I don't want to jump into this fray but, I would like to offer an opinion which is like......."everyone has one". I started late in life with this hobby/sport/addiction/fanaticism. I, for one wish, that I had waited for the Savvy TT instead of the AEV/Nth TT. My heep is becoming a pig and I think less wgt is better. If/when the TT shows up, it will be a good one! I am not disappointed with their fuel tank skid, corners, tub rubs and LEDs. If, I knew that the TT was in progress, I would have waited for it versus the Nth setup. JMHO

True, but have you considered that those of us with the info have also figured that out?

Poor Gerald. At least if you want to tell everyone something all you have to do is tell Gerald. then it will be out there pretty quickly. I think the best way to figure out what's going on is to just visit you guys.

What is the coupon code? Also would their skid be able to support the weight of the rig without bending, like the rokmen has shown? Thanks

I am very interested in the UCF skids however there are just too many grey areas:

- No actual pics of the product on it's own or installed
- Having a hard time determining if the tranny mount points / mount itself are recessed or do the bolt/heads protrude below
- In one of the pics they show a corresponding engine skid, yet i do not see anything like that for sale on the site...
- Where is the company located?

-I agree with the lack of pics
-Can't comment on the mounts
-Yes, there is price info. You have to click the drop down for options, and it will add the price.
-It is said here in the thread. Yes, it is handmade here in the USA.

Look around, there are plenty of pics with it installed. Dmcastino has one and has pics in his build thread. The tranny mount setup is similar to Rokmen's, it's recessed. You likely saw another engine skid not made by UCF---I'm not seeing what that has to do with UCF. You can bolt almost any engine skid up to any skid with a little work. Don't remember where the company is located but they are easily reachable so you could call and ask. I've dealt with the skid first hand. It's very nice and sells for a great price. If it had been around over a year ago, I would've purchased it over Rokmen's simply for the price savings since it's basically the same thing.
