Seems like a goat built is about the same cost as a fully built and welded chassis. Jim garage told me 3800 for a chassis out the door. Actually the same price for 4 full seats with 6 inches extra and 3 inches taller and still has to be welded (and I think you have to buy the jig and maybe some other stuff)

What does that chassis come with for $3800? The chassis is the easiest and cheapest part of the build. It's the link, shock engine trans all other brackets that take time. Than you have the all interior panels and seats mounts and on and on. Goatbuilt is the cheapest way if your looking for a complete chassis.

comes as it reads a bare chassis that is fully welded, unlike goat built. I would say the chassis is the cheapest, yes but definiltey not the easiest. Really none of it is easy, if it was everyone would do it.

I sat in this one at KOH. Being 6'4" I was concerned about head room. It was better then I thought it would be. Thanks again for that

I think he offers a taller roof option too for that.

One last pic....thing that really bugged me about some of the 4 seat chassis' that I looked at was the lack of roof coverage for the people in the back seat and/or a rear mounted radiator right behind the seat.

Bumping this up. It seems like many of the four seat rigs have very limited cargo room. Great for day trips or off road parks.

Can we get some pictures of four seat buggies loaded up for 2-5 days of camping with the whole family, tent/coolers/sleeping bags/etc?

Maybe Buck Island Lake or Fordyce Creek in the background?

It seems the nicely built JK's with an LS, 60's on 40's are the hot ticket for trips like that. I just came off 5 days on the Rubicon a couple weeks ago. I was in the Trent Fab car with 10+ NICE JK's. It was the first trip I thought a actual jeep would sure be nice..

Sounds like my last trip. I only had my son, so the rear seat made a great spot to pile all our camping gear.

Cooler and food box on the back. Everything else on the roof. 4 days on the Rubicon with 2 adults and 2 kids.

Mine (pics above) has a large roof rack for tons of gear plus a "shelf/rack" behind the rear seat over the fuel cell that's big enough for a 50qt cooler. Haven't taken it on extended camping trips yet but I don't anticipate space being a huge problem. Plus, if there's only 2 people going, I can pop out the back seat and have even more room.
