Savvy JK Test Mule
 
So in August 2011 we pickup one of the first 2012 JKUs. I was sold the moment I got on the freeway. It has been used to test fit a bunch of new parts from Dynomax , Rancho, Currie and of course Savvy.

Now I can document it's life and am finally starting its build. Most everything we do you'll be able to order and install yourself.

These are some of the products that are going to be installed, Sorry for the small pix!

Savvy JK Under Armor
Savvy JK Bumpers
Savvy JK Tail Lights
Savvy/Currie 4" Suspension Front and Rear Antirocks
Currie F9 front axle with HP9 4.88 gears
Currie RockJock 60 Rear Axle 4.88 gears
Fox Racing 12" Reservoir Shocks
PSC hydro assist steering
Warn Winch
Viking Off Road Synthetic rope
Raceline RT233 Monster Bead locks
Falken 37" Wildpeak AT Tires
Dynomax exhaust and 2012 cross over pipe
Tom Wood drives shafts
AFE Air Intake Kit
Powertank 10lbs CO2 Bottle


The day I brought it home

Rancho put a 3" lift on to test their parts, I had some 35" Goodyears MTRs sitting around so they went on. Raceline RT233 Monsters of course!

Thanks Will! You are so close to us now! We have to go wheeling!

For the current unknowing JK owners.....pay attention.

THIS is how you build a JK, namely the drivetrain and suspension.

So this is why you've been so busy lately, Gerald? Niiice.

id love to, but i leave CA for good on the 29th of June - i don't have my Jeep out here. i had hoped to get out with blaine during one of his trips to the hammers, but that hasn't worked out with my restrictions and responsibilities here.

maybe if you're in the local area to me we can grab a coffee or something and i can pick your brain on JK stuff.

can't wait to get some prototypes :drool:

Savvy 05-31-2012 08:53 PM

Bummer! It's too hot to go out JV now. You know you are on THE list for prototypes!

Savvy 05-31-2012 08:57 PM

So people don't ask. These Rubi Axles are going on my sons 2012 JK 2 door along with the automatic swaybar disconnect and 3" Rancho lift. The wheels and tires as well. Lucky kid!

Hi Gerald...
About time you get started on the JK..lol... just picked mine up in April.... I am going to need your armor/skid plates and tail lights really soon so let me know when they are finished. I was actually getting ready to order some other ones when I read this post... hopefully they are for an automatic!

I've been waiting for you to release some JK stuff. I could use some tail lights that don't fall off every time I hit a tree.
