Thats rediculous. 5 months late? Probably only takes a day or 2 to build.


I agree.  I know we're not building tube chassis at work, but a ridiculous amount of "rollers" get pumped out on a weekly basis.  If tooling and chassis jigs are set up for production, I agree no more than a couple days for bare chassis.

Nice! If I can give you some advice... if it's the only thing you listen to on the Internet... put an auto in it!

Spoken like true jeeple 😂😂😂😂
Well that sounds rude not funny like I was thinking haha!! but seriously there is gonna be such a performance loss with that
3 speed you might as well put the chassis on leaf springs. Landabruiser your not gonna find a buggy guy anywhere that will agree with putting a manual in one. You kinda are gonna be a dangerous buggy when your around other buggys on buggy terrain.

im not  one to jump on the auto swap bandwagon however POR is correct. never be able to hit the forward to reverse shift like a auto for the save....however build it like you want it :guitar: and have a good time!

I wonder how long that tranny will last.  I don't think they were designed to spin ls rpms. Not to mention the rest of the drivetrain.

Engine is in. Haven't had any time. Spent last weekend up at Galaher which was the last trip of the summer. Carla's headed to Spokane next weekend, so I'll have some garage time finally.

Found headers that work with a little grinding. Exhaust system engineering is next step.

Probably not. It will be 2 piece. Thinking of using the ear on the bellhousing yo mount the carrier bearing. It's pretty robust.

Don't! Keep the carrier bearing mounted to the chassis.

It won't limit the driveshaft, it's important to keep the driveline angle coexisting with link movement
