Put a column shifter in for the automatic and cable shifters in for the t-cases then you can have a bench seat in the front and the back to haul the whole tribe! I always wanted a bench seat in the sperminator so there would be comfortable seating for 6.
This is what I am thinking. Buggy with front fenders and hood from the Ford. It will be a big ol buggy, but if I can squeeze what I have down the trails now, I should be ok with all tube. I will wait until I have the 37 finished though, so that I always have something to wheel.

just my 2 cents but a buggy should make wheeling easier, not sure I see much point in making it so big it has to squeeze down the trails.

yep, putting a twisted customs bronco clip on would be sweet. any other ford skins would be detrimental towards global warming. the whole point of a buggy is cute and nimble for better visability and driveability. We watched the big buggy rock bouncers get schooled at KOH by a 4 cyl full bodied suzuki sidekick. No sense in putting that much effort into something that is not as good as a sidekick with toyota axles :mrgreen:

Back to this conundrum. I am seriously considering cutting off ALOT of sheetmetal and the existing cage work. Then boatsiding, new cage and a bench seat for the kids. I just do not have time to build a full on buggy at the moment. I wonder if I can find time to get all this done before the first week of June...hmmmmmm.

Going through a 4 seater rebuild myself. The sperminator had room for 5 and a 110 q cooler. Not exactly the best rockcrawler in the history or rockcrawler but it was a ton of fun. Put a bronco back seat in it and make a family cage for the back half and go play!

Any updates?

The Ford isn't a rock racer, but I like it. I am going to cut off a bunch, not sure how much. Maybe boatside, new cage for the bench seat, and losing the sheetmetal from the cowl back. That would maybe cut into wheeling this summer though. Not sure.
