Gerald, I don't know much about Savvy...are you guys a retailer or manufacturer? Or a little of both?

Also, I hear you can get a pretty good deal on Racelines...
For now we do all three. Retail, wholesale and manufacture. I like to give our customers product that are top quality and work well with each other. We play real hard so the products we make must be able to withstand the abuse I dish.

There are so many products out there that are form over function. We are definitely function over form. We do try and make our products look great but not at the expense of reliability. You normally will see more fasteners and less welds in our aluminum products. Also, you will notice our TJ gas tank skids have steel flanges and an aluminum base. This is the only way to prevent the weak OEM rear frame cross member from getting all bent up and the skid from buckling at the frame. Our flanges cover the entire rear crossmember spreading the load reducing damage when coming down hard the rocks.

Email me your Raceline needs and I'll work on it.

The AEV Procal works great with the 2012. I was able to easily calibrate my speedo. I couldn't get the tire pressure sensors to shut off. I would set it to zero but it still comes back on.

"Some users have reported the TPMS indicator lamp staying on after setting the Low Pressure Threshold to a new value. The TPMS sensors use timed and pressure-loss triggers to update the vehicle of tire pressures. In the event that the Low Pressure Threshold has changed to a value equal to or higher than actual tire pressure, the tires must be inflated to at least 5 psi over the new low value. The vehicle must then be driven up to 10 minutes above 15mph before the TPMS sensors update the vehicle of the new tire pressure. Once the reported tire pressure is 5psi above the Low Pressure Threshold the TPMS indicator lamp will turn off."

Set your dip switches to UP-UP-UP-DOWN-DOWN-DOWN-DOWN-DOWN-DOWN for 0 (I think 0 gave me trouble as well, so I set it to 1 PSI and drove for a bit and it worked just fine....1 PSI is UP-UP-UP-DOWN-DOWN-DOWN-DOWN-DOWN-UP

Also - I know you're doing a lot of installs right now...are you trying to do this without the tires mounted? That could be your issue...

I was trying to zero them out because I don't have the sensors in the beadlocks. I thought since I was going to be low pressure alot I didn't want the light to come on all the time. That's what I get for trying to think!

You're right....I was able to zero mine out...I don't have sensors either (sold them when I switched wheels) and my light was able to turn off.

Have you driven since setting to zero? Maybe it will turn itself off after it's been driven a little

Drove it for a little ways but it didn't shut off. Now that it is all apart I try again after I do a full reset. 4.88 gears 37" tires. Can the sensor in the wheels be retrofitted easily? I have to brake down the wheels to get the sensors out. Since I have new wheels coming I might as well add them back in.

Yes they can, but hell no I wouldn't do that...those sensors have a nasty habit of self-destructing...A)they're silly expensive for what the part is, IMO B)I seem to remember a discussion pertaining to the reliability of the associated valve stem itself C)Do you want to break down a beadlock to replace them should they go bad once, twice, three times?

Now, if the light really gets you...swapping them to an aftermarket wheel is no biggie

Hey Justin,

What are you doing over here!

I'm hoping it wheels as good as the LJ. I have so many Savvy parts I need to make for the JK. I need to lighten it up a bunch but its tough because all of the OEM stuff is so thin to start with I can't make it lighter than stock. Stronger, yes but lighter, maybe! The bumpers will be equal weight the gas tank skid is lighter but damn is it big!

Thanks,

Gerald

Lurking Got a thing for black Jeeps or what? Hope all's been well. How you liking the new shop?

I never realized you had a Detroit in the front of the race rig. How does that do in 4hi while at speed?

Perfect in 4Hi. Since it goes where ever you point it. It really drives like it is on rails. I'll have to give you a ride next time we are out at JV.

Let me know when. I'd love to take a hot lap in that Jeep! You need to take it on our Barstow to Laughlin run with us!

Sorry for the hijack, this is the JK's thread!

Got the rear axle almost done. Just need to install the Fox reservoir shocks, brake lines and Antirock. The nice thing about putting in a Currie Axle and Suspension lift at the same time is you don't have to install the housing brackets. The spring perch retainers are already drill and tapped as well. There is plenty of extra holes in the brackets so you can dial in the ride you want. You want more squat, then lower the uppers. Everything is already figured out for you. The new Currie cast D60 diff cover comes with a dip stick for easy maintenance. They make these for the D44 as well.

Today I went to Turnkey Engine Supply with Joh Currie to pickup his 2008 JKU that they just install a LS motor with a 6L80e 6-speed auto tranny. With 40" tires and 6.0 gears this thing moves. He is going to go back down to 5.38 (I think.) The 6L80e has 4:1 first gear. I want one so bad!
