I flipped my truck manifold and part of me wishes I would have made it work with it facing forward. It's gets pretty annoying listening to the filter suck air after a little while.

Last jeep had it in the cab, but everything else was noisy enough that I never noticed it. If it's bad I can always box it in and duct it from under the hood. I just think trying to package the cross over, radiator plumbing, and intake up front might be too busy.

There's been lots of time staring on the pile of parts trying to figure were I can fit it all in. Kinda wish I was a solid works guy.

You should stop offering to sell it to people, unless you get enough to buy a turnkey.

So, I just got off the phone with Drew at Goatbuilt. I ordered up a JHF kit. I've been looking at them since they were announced because I've always thought that JHF builds nice looking and great working buggies.

The initial batch is sold out, but he is waiting on the laser cutter to finish up the second order. He's hoping to get everything and ship by the end of the month. I'm pretty excited to get this moving.

I've spent a lot of hours looking at pirate4x4 and facebook of the first few getting put together. I'm sure it'll be tight to fit everything, but I'll figure it out.

Jesse's build on facebook is 109" wheelbase and is running a 5.3, TH350, and Atlas but on the pass drop.

Waiting for it to ship is killing me. Maybe I should wait a few months and buy AJ's when he goes to the next thing. lol

If you do, don't cancel your order that's never going to arrive.

We ordered thru my buddy Shaun at Michiana Auto Pros as he gets a Goatbuilt discount. Guess tubes were lasered last week and getting formed this week, shipping next week. Our pallet of portals should be here this week from Jesse.

Yeah, that's a similar timeline to what he said when I ordered. Sounds like laser was already late, so he was trying to make dates soft so I wasn't calling every day.

Parts were originally targeted to be lasered just before Christmas. But I'm not too disappointed, just started building the 4x10 chassis table last night.
