Liking the bumpers Gerald. I absolutely hate 99% of the bumpers produced for the JK; it's like everyone tries to make the biggest, ugliest, heaviest hunk of metal to throw on. Glad to see Savvy is bringing some common sense to the table.

This is what you are paying for. The ability to make an obstacle while other can't. Not dragging your butt over obstacles. Reduced weight equals better performance, less strain on your drive train, the ability to carry other stuff for camping instead of a big old bumper, the best approach and departure angles are just a few of the reason why our bumper systems are the ultimate kits for a JK. While they are not for the bolt in crowd the people that get it know.

Look at this picture, the random Jeep in the restaurant parking lot makes our case. It was a nice JK and the owner was cool! Same Currie 4" lift. His exhaust is a midway down the tire and his bumper is just above. Our bumper is at least 4" above his bumper. So with our new exhaust and bumper kit he would net nearly 7" of additional ground clearance.
Your rear is sitting way higher, and he has a spare on. But i get it as am doing almost the same thing on mine.

You can let them hang off the recovery points below the bumper!

The first production run is due Friday so I'll be able to show it completely so people can really grasped what's going on.

My point exactly. Same lift!

Regardless of the lift our new cross member is 3-4" above the stock cross member and our exhaust further above that!

I'll agree with geiman that most bumpers for the JK are garbage, yours is one of the few that I actually like. The ability to run a stock hitch with that much clearance is awesome especially since I still use it to haul crap to camp. Currently bumper less and remove the hitch before going out, works great so I can't justify spending that much. Any pics of the cross member without the bumper on?

We actually don't wheel with a spare. Just air source and lot's of plug kits. In the last 5 years of hard wheeling I can personally say I've only got one flat and it was because I aired down too much. Just needed air to inflate. Plenty in our group have had flats but none we could not plug.

But, there are many who feel safer with a boat anchor I mean spare tire and right now I recommend the Teraflex type of carrier. Attached to the body only. I'm not a fan of of bumper mounted carriers that attach to the body as the frame and tub move differently.

Thanks.

Got the hood painted. A lot less money than a AEV hood direct from your dealer. The dealer wanted over a $1000 for the AEV and this was only $500.

Can't wait to get it on today!

We are here to find out next week in Moab. It is 3/16" steel so I predict it won't have a problem.
