Ok, Kev and Katelyn, I am good for a C-note. Lets get a RME sticker on this buggy. :D

Do we do a link, paypal, venmo?

What is a reasonable goal?

Post up with other part needs too, we probably have most of what else you need kicking around RME garages... ;)

We're working on the plans for an official RME donation to Kevin and Katelyn, just hammering out the details.

Thank you @Jinx. We appreciate the help and the RME family has done so much for us. We did not ask or expect this but are truly appreciative. Here is the list of things we thought we needed for a fresh start buggy build. Feel free to add to it as we are new to this.

Things already done:

Goatbuilt Chassis
Warn winches front and rear
Axles from XJ with wheels and 37s
4 speed atlas T case.
Th350 unsure of condition, rebuild?
A single Corbeau seat.
Arb air compressor with switches.
Battery and battery box.

Adapter to mate my atlas to th350(purchased)
Artec Full hydro mount and link tabs purchased. (Purchased)

Sponsored items in some shape or form/discount.

Th350 shifter from RADdesign products.

Summit Machine links and joints

Warn Winches:
Front VR Evo 10s
Rear VRX 35

Raceline wheels and future 40 inch Maxxis tires.

Adams Drive shafts (need lengthened)

Things we need:

Motor. Was liking the LV3 idea bit they are expensive 3k expensive. I have a eye on a lm4 5.3 for 1k
PCM and wire harness should come with Motor but will need it simplified. Painless wire harness?

14 inch ORI Struts.

Front and rear cutting brakes
Master cylinder
Pedals and assembly.

Short synthetic rope for rear winch.

Gauges

Fuel cell/pump 15-20 gallon.

Radiator/ Eletric fan

PSC full hydro dual ram set up.

Transmission cooler/fan.

Removable steering wheel/setup.

One more seat or a new pair of seats/harnesses.

Headlights.

Katelynn is continuing to look for sponsors for different things and we will update this as things move forward and Warn is an example of that.
We are so excited and are grateful for all the help thus far. Goat built and the Reeves as without there help this wouldn't have even been a possibility and I'd probably would have made the mistake of building another XJ. Thank you again.

Kevin and Katelynn.

This is moving forward. The Chassis has been delivered to Blind Squirrel racing. They will probably start on it in 2 weeks after the last Supercrawl event.

I have ordered the Novak adapter piece to mate my 4 speed atlas to the TH350. Also the Artec Full hydro mount and some link tabs.

I am purchasing a LM4 from my cousin. He is going to install a larger cam shaft, springs, and new seals and install the larger trail blazer SS intake on it. My Th 350 should be here tomorrow when Tim comes down for the memorial run. Getting super excited as things are going to start moving quick.

I need to get busy and pull the axles out from under the XJ so when I deliver the drive train I can also deliver the axles. Also Katelynn got her winches from Warn. So excited to have them on board.

Awesome news! That LM4 with a cam and TBSS intake ought to run pretty well! Sand dunes should be way more fun! ;)
