Yes sir, otherwise I would bought the 4 seat chassis. Jesse said Iíd be limited to a 32Ē bench with queersteer, so itíd basically be a 3 seater anyways.

Hopefully closing on the new haus in a couple of weeks, and I can connect the dots making this heap a roller.

Decided to make the rear opposite drop for a few reasons. Due to pinion offset, keeping them both on the same side would've had 2" less tube on the short side and 4.75" of tube wasn't much for shock/link mounts and rear steer. Pinion offset would put the yoke closer to center with it on the drivers side.

Coming together nicely. I have a couple of questions on the axles. Are you running low pinion both front and rear? Also have you considered and aftermarket C and knuckle option for these? Is it mainly a cost thing or do you get better angle from the factory parts?

Low Pinion front and rear due to cost, and I haven't had an issue with the prior ones I've owned.

I paid $400 complete down to brake lines per axle complete. No reason to run aftermarket at that price unless you're sponsored. This is a budget build, if possible.

Bought them as a package deal, and sold them before I got them out of the box. Iím already putting enough lipstick on a pig. :flipoff2:


Super cool build. Funny to see these pics show back up, they are from 05 or 06.

Nice build, really like your axles and I canít wait to see them complete.

This thing a roller yet?

Got moved in to the new Haus, and love all the room in the garage. Unfortunately at 60.25" this drivetrain does not fit this chassis well, and everything hits everywhere. Turbo and intake hit the shock to dash tubes, doubler and tcase hit seat mounts, 300 hits rear subframe, trans pan hits front subframe, and the alternator is where the upper link goes. On top of the other issues, it's pending sold, and a new motor is being picked up this weekend if plans go right.

That's kind of a bummer.....:( I have been watching this build anxiously awaiting the drivetrain install for motivation to start my own JHF buggy. I have a built Tracker drivetrain and built yota based axles I thought would be perfect for a JHF chassis. When I saw your build pop up I started to get some motivation to order a chassis kit myself.

Thanks for being the Guinea pig and trying it out so I didnt have to waste my money. :grinpimp:

Still sucks though.

I think if you raised/changed the shock hoop to dash bar tube you would have more room to raise the engine up. I think with the TH180 (3 Speed) would obviously be shorter and fit the chassis better. That would allow you to pull the engine in deeper giving clearance from those tubes, and pull the 300 in from the subframe and rear seat tubes. Jesse said he had to modify a lot to get the Toyota drivetrain installed in the one he built.

If you decided to modify the Goatbuilt interior panels or nix them and make your own, then modifying all of the interior tubes to get it to fit might not be as big of a deal either.

Keith said he had a few parts he could whip up a few more probably. But a local guy is coming to grab the trans/doubler Sunday.

I was kinda wondering how well the drivetrain would fit. I wanna put my 2.0/th180/4.7 yota case in one of these chassis. Curious to see the length differences in mine vs your new setup.

Jesse said he had to change several things when he built the one with the 22R, such as lengthen the subframe. the 180 is several inches shorter, I was just told it doesn't like turbos.

A little elbow grease, and it'll be ready to stab in the chassis next week.

Got some help in the garage this weekend, a good friend cleaned up my knuckles to prep for the high steer, and scored a used Atlas 4.3 that’s been wheeling longer than I have.
