Been slowly putting this car together over the last few years. My goal was to build a car that would be comfortable on the trail and competitive in WE rock sportsman A. I know the trend these days is smaller turbo motors keeping everything super lightweight but I'm going to stick to my guns and run a nice rumbly LS.

Basic specs

2 seat JHf chassis narrowed to 51.5" to suit willys cowl
9" thirds 4.88 with zip lockers, JHF portals, spiderTrax axles 300m Rcv birfs
crate LS3 480
RMVB th400
Atlas 3 to1
aluminum links, 16" ORI struts
Cutting brakes front and rear
43" sticky swampers
Rear rad
Front and rear winches
switch pro switches, race pac dash
Etc etc.

We're on the last of the major fab work and hoping to be tearing town to blast and paint the chassis with steel it in the next few weeks. Still have a long way to go but it's getting there.
I will try to get more photos uploaded shortly and keep this up dated as it gets finished over the next few months.

Nice build!! Looks like at least 4 tire changes to this point? I see 42" BFG, Maxxis and sticky mickies but intro says 43" Thump Thumps.

Thanks man, I settled on swampers, gonna run 17" wheels to get it going and change to 20s after a season.
