Dang Gerald that is a right purty picture.

I've been out of touch for the last week or so and just couldn't believe this thread had gone that long without a post. I had to bump it, just couldn't help myself.

BTW is it better to try and email you through the shop or PM you here? Which do you prefer?

I was hoping he hasn't forgot us LJ Rubi guys... If you need a tester in WA, let me know-I have a few more issues than I thought after the 'Con...

Tell him to build your corners with a rail too as an option other than just the solid bar. I won't have the ability to weld those up for a while yet in the new place...

Best of Luck,

Mike

Pretty sure the rails are attached drilled in and pretty sure they aren't solid through and through either.

Well, I know I'm an old fart but I thought this was a thread about Savvy Under Armor. Maybe Oldtimers disease is getting the best of me. At this time I'm not looking for corner armor, maybe sliders will a small step (with RA I sometimes has trouble climbing in).

BTW Gerald which do you prefer, an email to the wesite or a PM? I have a question that doesn't need to be asked here and start an avalanche of posts.

Thanks

I thought he was asking if they would work without the Savvy corner armor... I'm guessing the radius of the tub rail curve is setup to perfectly match the Savvy Corner Armor and would be a big ? with any other type of corner armor (and would require new holes to be be drilled in the corner) and likely not compatible if trying to mount directly to the tub without any corner armor.

Well Super after rereading the last several posts I can see where you are probably right. I can't see any other reason for his posts in this thread.

However without the Savvy corner armor if you were to tag anything with those rails mounted straight to the tud you would have a F'ed tub. If your theory is correct then me thinks this is a mall crawler.

Don't get me wrong, in my opinion anyone who loves Jeeps is okay no matter what they use them for.

55 is a friend of mine in Washington. He wheels in trees and is looking for a bit more depth in top of the tub protection.

I keep trying to convince him to get some driving lessons, but he insists on training wheels instead.

I always thought it was more fun to nearly crap yourself cause you thought you were about to crumple a fender, and then clear the tree by an inch or so...

You read it. You can't unread it!

Wow-didn't realize my lame attempt at flipping Blaine a little crap would be taken so hard. My apologies.

Blaine-I guess I forgot to ask you how the Rubi version was coming. Had I done that, wouldn't have had to ask here. With what we discussed the other day, I'm wondering if I shouldn't do the UA first then go forward with what we discussed as I'm sure there will be some substantial clearance differences between my current Medic setup and the Savvy once you're finished with it. That may change orientation of a few things I'd guess and I don't want to go backwards on this. Anyway, looking forward to the swap-for several reasons. Whether it's just a simple redesign of the mount or an entirely different setup, I know whatever you dream up will work nicely.

Oh-and get to work already! These training wheels are heavy!!!

As to the mall crawling-nah, that's too hard-core for me. Pulling it out of the garage into the driveway is about as tough as it gets. Too dangerous otherwise. Those guys that actually WHEEL their rigs are nuts..

Best of Luck,

Mike

Now that's what I want to hear!

Here's hoping I can afford it when the 241/6-speed crossmembers are available.

I need to point out a few things that most people are missing with the Under Armor. All of the fasteners are flush to the skid so there is nothing to get hung up on. The Under Armor system is designed so you can get to the nuts on top should you smash or bugger up any of the screws. You can plainly see them in Les's photo above. Even the frame bolts use flat heads so you slide right over the rocks (we give you new ones to replace the OEM frame bolts that other manufacturer's have you reuse.) There are also no open holes on the Under Armor when fully installed. Holes help get you stuck! That's why we go to the extra expense of adding an oil drain door. We could have saved you a few dollars but then it would be Savvy.

The other thing about skid plates is not all are created equal. I'm not talking about strength as most can survive the big hit. What I talking about is the foot print and getting turtled. The lowest part of the Under Armor system is only 12 inches wide. All other skids are frame rail to frame rail on the lowest part. Why is that siginifcant? Well, think about if you reduce the area upon which you can get stuck on by 50% it all starts to make sense.

Thanks for reading and please feel free to call me with any questions! I'm hoping that the other versions will get done soon as all of you that have been so patient and you'll will be rewarded with the best skid out there!
