Center mount 4wd

Well not really center mount due to the diff flange offsets, but will still be a badass project to finish up the truck.

Specs so far:
Engine: LS3 - from 2012 camaro. Stock for now, will be built to 550-600hp later

Trans: 4L80e - built by Jakes Performance. Stage 5 (1500hp/1500ft-lbs street capable)

Tcase: Atlas II with 300m input/output

Front diff: Currie 9+ center section. ARB locker, 5.13 gears, 934 stubs

Axleshafts: RCV cvs and axelshafts

Hubs: Spidertrax ulimate unit bearings

Steering: Most likely Howe steering rack

Front suspension: Still being designed but will have 20in travel, 2.5cos, and 3.0bypasses.




Heres some pics from the backhalf build/new clip




Fuel lines are all black now


Has 3.0 bypasses in rear now


Everythings all ziptied up. Blue hose is fuel hose thats covering the plastic air locker line



The allusive sway bar.


Single piece driveshaft. 3.5" tube, 1350 rear joint, and 1310 up front. When the truck comes back it will have the engine pushed back about a foot so the driveline will be shortened.


A little hard to see the side plating in the pic, but a little more elaborate then the first set.


Interior was all stripped down and shot all black, minus the dash. The dash will be getting a few modifications next time its in then powder coated. I like the look of it already, but we have to fit a gps and maybe a couple other doo dads. Also made a co2 tank holder in the ext cab section, will take a pic later.


And the storage tank. Already wired for 2 optimas inside.

Box is split internally and pretty well water proof against rain and mobbing, not submerged. Batteries in the front and open storage in the back. In the front section there is dual optimas with room for full spare oil+fluid+coolant storage OR a very big bag of tools. The rear section is about 36" wide x 24" deep x 16" tall(?).

I don't know a thing about long travel and all but that is one clean truck. Very nice and good luck with the build.

Few update pics of the CAD. Its getting pretty close to start cutting plate, tubing, and mounting parts. I am still trying to figure what rack i want to use. Its narrowed down to Howe, just trying to decide which one. Dont mind some of the interference parts/shocks they were only for quick mockup on some other parts.
