Q & A

What's in the Box

Our traditional T frame has an additonal 6" of kick-up in the rear and was designed to use our High-Arch leaf spring. Add our 6" drop front axle and you have a T in the weeds. Due to the radical stance of this chassis, we recommend using traditional steering. This frame provides you with a basic working platform, but fabrication skills are required to make it a complete chassis.

  • 23.5" wide @ front crossmember
  • 28.5" wide @ rear corssmember
  • 97" long front-to-back
  • 16" from bottom of frame rail to top of rear crossmember
  • Frame rails measure 3" tall X 1-1/2" wide and are .125 wall thickness 

This product requires a 3-4 week build time.

Notes

  1. This frame uses a Model A rear crossmember and has a higher rear kick-up than our other frames. It would typically be used with a spring-behind axle having 6" drop and our High Arch rear spring.
