bmxrules39 Cracked weld, and poor customer service.

I have had this tank skid for a few years. I can't argue that it hasn't held up well. I'm not the most hardcore off-roader, but the tank has taken quite a few hits. However, I noticed that it has developed a large crack in one of the welds. After taking three weeks to respond, Savvy told me that I will need to send my tank skid back to them first, as well as pay for shipping. This is a huge burden and will leave me without a gas tank for quite some time. What if the jeep is my daily driver?
It seems that normally in this situation companies will send the replacement product with a return shipping label. I can't say that I respect the way that Savvy is going about this warranty. I thought they stood behind their products better.

redtjeep Great product! provides way better coverage and strength than factory and with body lift allows for an inch more clearance. The only complaint is how tight the fit was it was hard to get the tank to sit properly inside the skid.

LeeMasterGT I heard plenty of great things about the Savvy GTS and even installed one on another TJ. However, when I purchased mine I found that it will contact my stock differential cover as my rear axle moves up. My impression was that the Savvy skid gave the most clearance possible, even more clearance than the stock skid.

However, the fitment was very good, the tank slid right in and was very snug, and it did net me over an inch of clearance gained ( I do not have a body lift and therefore was not able to tuck it higher). The included hardware is very comprehensive which would be a real plus for anybody with an older Jeep that wants to replace everything including bolts and gas tank straps.

BBRider64 Great protection, excellent design and execution. Two years of taking some good hits and holding up well.

Ridgerunner19 Very impressed with this product. Installation was a breeze all by my lonesome. Protection looks to be solid. Offers more clearance than many other fuel skids. If I decide to go with a tummy tuck (you know I will), it's going to be a Savvy modular and I'll go with the entire package.

4wdjeepguy Light weight unit. Adds an inch of ground clearance. However, the pieces don't exactly fit together and may require some massaging by the end user to make it work. Also, the mounting holes will off set the skid to the driver's side and cause the skid to press against the cross member. Would have liked a non adjustable skid for use with a body lift only. Strength provided by the carriage bolts that hold the pieces together is questionable. If I had to do it again, I'd probably go a different route.

Powrjunkey I installed this with my gas tank half full, with the help of my wife. didnt drop the tank, but the install went smoothly enough. I was terrified that I was going to crush fuel lines while raising into position, but after install, no leaks and the jeep runs and drives.

jmhall79 Fantastic Product. Great fit and finish. Simple install. The best skid on the market period.

Trisalsa First upgrade to the jeep after the old, stock skid plate rotted out. Tank fit in like a glove and the whole the bolted back up without any modifications.

DevilDogDoc Love the GTS, well made and thoughtfully designed, tucks up nicely with the BL has taken more than a few hits with nothing but scratches to show for it....

StuddMuffinz Easy enough to install. Just drop your tank, peel it out of the old skid, plunk it in the shiny one, and bolt it back up. Easy as that. Love dual mounting positions, gained almost two inches up, as well as some more space behind the rear diff. Went to bang it up a bit offroad, and hardly ever even hit it. And thats on 31's. Leaves nothing to be desired. Great product.

rhino35350 Dented the stock skid so I figured it was time to upgade. Savvy GTS is much tougher and I have it in the raised position to gain an extra inch of clearance with the body lift
