If you have been following this build you can be sure things always change.

With the launch of Savvy Offroad, I had to get the Unlimited ready to showcase our first product. So, I decied to install a Currie 9" with a hi pinion third. I change the 4.88s to 4.56 and like it better as I can now use first gear and it does alot better on the freeway.

We also installed one of our new skids so here are a couple of pix. I'm going to have to install a body lift so I can fully utilize our skid.

I'm starting to think I need to take some time off up here and come down and visit you and Blaine. You've also got me planning for an Unlimited project next winter since I'm about where I want to be on my SWB. Well ok, giving consideration to fabricating a long arm set up for it.

Had a leaky axle seal a while back and replaced it but I messed up the emergency brake shoes on the passenger side. So today, I finally had a chance to fix the ebrake shoes from rubbing. Last thing I need to do is bleed the brakes.

I think I need three more so I have one for everyday of the week!

The aluminum ones on there now are 8 lbs.

My LJ corners will have a twist so keep an eye out for them.
Any updates on the corners? Also, whats the eta on your rockers?

These jeep projects of yours are amazing, makes me wish I was in SoCal so I could come by your shop and talk jeep with you!
Keep up the good work!

Doh! I'm lame most of the time! Those are Sniperfab DIY tubes. Soon to be changed as I don't want the flare any longer as they limits my up travel a little. And, I have 39s ready to go on.

Naw, something savvy! I'm thinking a one off set of aluminum tubes probably high lines and a Trent Fab hood I've got to keep Blaine busy!

This is all very much down the road.

Ouch! Bumpers are a must! I'm looking forward to seeing the prototypes as well.

Is there anything we can do to help these processes speed up? Even though I can't afford it all, I still want to drool over it!
