Savvy off-road sold? (the unofficial Savvy customer support and Savvy rant thread)

But, does that mean the original versions or some gen Z version?

🤷‍♂️

Gerald said the slowest part of the process is sorting through thousands of photos to find images for the listings.

Saw some details that differ from my gear. Not sure if these are known old photos or recent changes they've made.

The big A brace is from the original Under Armor surfboard design where the center skid and engine skid was a long single piece. The A brace bolted onto the Savvy motor mount lift blocks. This hasn't been available for at least 15 years.

After that, it appears the A brace survived into the early modular design with a separate engine skid.

Welp yall im just relived the stuff is back and most importanly for some of us, the tummy tuck is still available ! 😁
Hoping to see the bumpers too
 
Spoke to Gerald today. He said he his email is working again. He sounded excited about getting the TJ and LJ parts back into production. He said he hopes everyone understands he has been living the retired life. He still has a passion for TJ/LJ.

Updates: The steel rock rails are completed and working on the aluminum portion of the sliders. bumpers would be back. Now that price of aluminum has come down and people are expressing a lot of interest in armor lightweight. On the aluminum corner armor, he is trying to get them produced again at reasonable price. He said there would be some updates to products as well including the transfer case skid.

He said that he would personally make some of the stainless steel tub rails.
We spoke about how they are made from pattern of two mirrored “candy canes shapes” with a strip of metal in the middle. Each “candy cane side” is folded upwards and then the rear most strip is bent into the curve then tig welded.
He said he doesn’t get on the forum much. We exchanged a couple ideas like how we:
cut the savvy crossmember end off, flip and swap left/right. Weld a bracket inside the frame. Also how we also use the aluminum corner skids on the rear receiver bumpers like as seen on @taylormade73

So keep your fingers crossed

I still find this situation weird. Gerald may well have been "living the retired life", he is perfectly entitled to that and I wish him well in that. But what about the other two guys who (according to the Savvy website) have merged their business with Savvy and taken an interest in the business? Are we to take it that the new 'partners' have no interest in / been doing nothing about TJ parts and only if Gerald comes out of retirement do they get some focus? It sounds like it is the other two that need to be questioned on their commitment to parts for the TJ platform, now and in the future.
