Battlecocks Bug!

Sometimes I really wish I had gone with a bug based rail, than a 4x rig. Right up until we go snow wheeling or mudding, then I'm pretty happy to have doors and a heater.

Nice bug, BTW, glad to see you aren't going to chop it into little pieces and ruin it for restoration, if you ever decided to go that route.

I installed the front lift spindles just to find out that the drum brake backing plates did not clear the top of the steering knuckle. After a trip to Fibercraft we noticed the catalog states that the lift spindles are NOT compatible with drum brakes...... Lame. I went ahead and ordered a front disc brake setup. It's something i wanted to do anyways, just.... not right now. I also ditched the front sway bar.

New tires for the rear. 235/75/15. Still waiting on front disc brake kit to do the front, and get some side view pics.

It's amazing how stupid simple that front suspension is, and how much abuse it can take.
