I finished up my Swag Off-Road tailgate conversion over the weekend. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. When I finally get my Savvy corner armor (currently on back order)

What did that cost you Kevin? And where do I get one?
Swag Off-Road is the company making these. This kit was $307.00 shipped to the house. They offer cheaper alternatives but I wanted the aluminum skinned version to match the Savvy armor.

BTW, this was my b-day present from Michelle. My wife rocks!!!

Looks pretty nice, in his kit the latch on the passengerside is just kinda cheesy.
I wanted more of a CJ7 look and stuck latches inside. Overall he makes a very nice kit

If I ran around with just the safari top I would have done the same thing. However, there's no way to get the tailgate open with the back window in. It's actually better than I expected and operates pretty smoothly. If Jeep would just give us a real tailgate again it wouldn't matter.

Update: Gerald let me know he's got the corner armor and GTS in stock for me. Running up there tomorrow morning to pick them up. More pictures to follow when I finish the install.

Got the Savvy corners installed this afternoon. I think they match the Swag tailgate pretty well. I still need to come up with longer bolts so I can reinstall my cb mount.

Nice!
I have the Savvy gas tank skid and am impressed with the design and quality. I don't have the Swag tail gate drop yet, but it is on the list.

Looking great so far Kevin. Aluminum doors and hood next? Or do they make them?
I really like that tailgate setup. I will go that route when I get my new rear bumper with the tire carrier.

Thanks for the compliment!!!

Going to pick up the Savvy tub rails and their receiver bumper next week. Then I'm pretty much Savvy'd out! I'll add either aluminum Gen Right or Metalcloak fenders as my next major mod.

Final mods are Raceline beadlocks, full cage, and having Blaine outboard the shocks.

Well, no GTS install today. Evidently the connectors on the fuel and vent lines are really brittle and can break easily. Since I have to use the Jeep to run my dogs to the vet tomorrow I don't wanna take a chance of messing something up. I'll just wait until Monday after work to knock it out.

BTW, I'm having a buddy make me aluminum panels to replace the black Swag ones. I don't really like the black and the aluminum will keep the theme going.

Much to Kevin's surprise, I was using it for a workbench when he came around the corner. lol
Seemed like a handy spot to me!

That's one of the reasons why I did it. Plus, it's a better platform for holding ammo and magazines when I'm out shooting.
