Jesse Haines Fabrication has released a new JHF Trail series chassis. This is one of the first production units. Plans are
  • 3800 L67 supercharged engine
  • 700r trans, full manual valve body
  • D300 Behemoth transfer case 4:1
  • '05+ Superduty D60 front
  • D70 rear with SD 60 steering
  • PRP seats and 4.2 harnesses
  • JE Reel drivelines
  • Radflo 2.5 16" air shocks
  • Milestar tires
Will update as more plans come together.

Test fitting seat position now.....engine is under 24" long, so plenty of space available. (Rear radiator)

Just an idea to get some more headroom, what if you angle the drivetrain slightly to drop the seat a little bit more? How far off the belly is the drive train? And by the belly I mean the actual skid plate

eyeball clearances:
  • t-case to bellypan: 3/4"
  • rear of trans pan to bellypan: 1/2"
  • converter to front belly tube: 3/4"
With the seat on the test-fit cross bars, it's 1" off the top of the flipped D300 alum cover. Headroom is more than a fist (no helmet yet) Cozy, but perfect :)

D70 disassembled, retube pending for the knuckles...and mocking up the 16" Radflo airs (zip tie skills)
