So is the fixture kit available to buy with the chassis? Where will these kits ship from?

I placed my first goat built order today. Between after hours last night and this morning I got an education from them. Very responsive and willing to help. Thanks Goat Built. Not related to their chassis but I?ll go back for anything he sells.

Seconded

Also, do you have plans to offer ready made drivetrain and suspension mounts like on the Ibex? And what drivetrain is in mind for keeping a front radiator?

Soon, working on the 4 seat design now, so hopefully I'll have that 4 seat version ready soon.

Jesse is going to build a front rad with a 5.3 LS so we'll see how that turns out.

We have some suspension mounts available and working on drivetrain and pretty much every thing else you would need to build one.

Convince him to put it on here and not Facespace. Want one of these so bad, but not in the budget for a couple of years.

This he was a great resource of tech. Hopefully he does at least a small build thread here. Iím debating on just using my 5.0/c4 drivetrain I already have. Iím probably two years out on building as Iíve got to finish my Jeep.

For future planning, should one expect to pay about the same or more/less for this chassis as a 4 seat complete kit than your Ibex? Complete kit being all mounts, skins, floors, dash, etc like you offer on the Ibex for $12K.

Last I saw him mention, he was one of the many with a login issue after the email crisis.

When I went by his house last night ,I asked him about a build and he didn't say he wasn't ,but he did say he gets a lot more exposure from stuff posted on FB....

I do know he's about to get after building a buggy from this kit very soon.....

Between exposure and ease of posting, I get it. I just suck (mostly the platform sucks) at finding details on FB builds even a week after one shows up. Also seems to be less actual discussion of tech.
