Most likely more high end than I need for my type of wheelin', but will keep an eye on your mods.

If not for my two Grandsons, who will inherit my Jeep, I wouldn't be going this route either. But in a few years I'll get to watch my two boys go out and test the thing to its limits...that will bring a gigantic smile to face and joy to my heart. And for now I get to build a terrific Jeep and have some fun along the way...Win/Win.

Next modification...Atlas Transfer Case.

Well now...just got off the phone with my builder and Savvy is having a dickens of a time getting the parts from their subcontractors...so me and another guy are waiting for Savvy to come through with our orders. From what I understand via Martin, their subcontractor provided key components milled/fabricated out of specification. While I truly appreciate their attention to detail, I think Savvy should have had a better handle on this system and had a stock of components before announcing its release, but that's just me.

In the meantime...I am getting the Currie Rear Anti-Rock and Vanco Big Brake Kit installed prior to my trip to Moab...sure burns me though...dang it.

No updates, I've been away from home since the beginning of the month. I hear that the parts are just coming out of Savvy.

So I'm also very interested in the savvy mid arm for my L.J. I would like to improve the ride quality on back country roads. I currently have the RE short arm 4 inch with fox shocks. The previous owner put this on the jeep. Would this be a good solution?

I have a custom 4-link on the rear axle and it has been a wonderful upgrade. On road and off-road performance is significantly better than my previous short arms. GenRight has some nice looking long arm kits.

How you like the suspension so far? I had my eye on it before I got my JK, and now that I have decided to keep the TJ I'm looking at it again.
