I haven't really figured out how to prevent that. Many guys that buy the kit already have a bender, notcher and could build something like that from scratch, but the kits save so much time, the extra money they spend on the kit is often worth the time saved. Plus when you get down to the add on parts like the suspension brackets, interior panels....etc that are available, everything fits. Sure, we have all measured and copied things to make for ourselves, if you want to find one of these chassis, measure one and build one, I don't care, I'd flattered.
I have bender(s) notcher(s) and the ability to build from scratch. This was still a good deal of time saving for me. Well it would have been if I'd either have waited to be second batch, or you'd have followed up with the rest of the stuff for the first run guys.

Is that the rear steer control just to the right of the transmission shifter? Details?

Have any pictures of the LV3 in there? I think that is a great engine for the build. Looks good!

Thanks for sharing all the pictures of this build!!! Any chance you have some of the kick panels on this buggy. Seems like a neat way to close it in some! Outwest open in nice but in the dirty south a little protection from the mud is nice.

All kick panels, seat pans, rear firewall, tailgate and side skins were cut on my 5x10 cnc plasma. AJ the owner is on his way to Trail Hero right now, maybe I'll put up a build thread when he gets back if he doesn't mind. I have all the build pics, shakedown pics and video zipped up in a 1.5 gig download on dropbox also.

I want to make anyone aware though that is contemplating an LV3 and setting accessories up like we did of one thing. And that is that our biggest issue right now is getting the alternator to line up with the balancer. Even though the Bomber Fab bracket is designed to bolt to a Gen IV LS Camaro/Vette pump the offset between the LS and LT is different. We currently have the alternator shimmed back as far as possible and I had a 1/4" pocket machined to push the tensioner back towards the block. I'm thinking about machining down the Dirty Dingo blocks to get everything dialed in as the pump pulley is wide and forgiving.

Chris would you mind sharing that file via email... Would love to see the pics of the build since mine will be similar. They will not be posted anywhere.

Anyone done one with a gm 3900 yet? Also could it be narrowed to 48" wide chassis on your end Drew?

I’d like to see a side by side comparison to show the difference in size of the chassis of the 4-seater. I like the idea of keeping it smaller. Just a fun trail vehicle but still be able to navigate down those small logging/four wheeler trails with the fam.

This is an LS1/4L80E/Atlas for reference. The Atlas is less than 1/8" from the rear subframe, and trans pan is maybe 3/4" from the front subframe.

C6 with adapter is 26.25” and a 203/205 doubler is 21.5” for a total length of 46.45”.

4L80e is also 26.25” and a typical atlas is about 14” with a long tail? So most likely no.

I have a th350 and atlas 4spd shoved in there. Fits in subframe with about 1/8” clearance front and back.
