300 disc brake conversion.

Well I just bought myself the Highlifter disc brake conversion kit! I got it off ebay for $274.

It will be soooo sweet to finally have GOOD RELIABLE brakes! Ordered my new Swamp Lites today too!

Now to find DGL!! ( which I WILL! lol )

Well today, I recieved my new Highlifter Disc Brake conversion kit.

It looks killer!!! I should hopefully get a chance to install it later today, and I'll take pics of the install as I go.......

I ran into a small snag..... I can't seem to get the wheel studs out of the hub. They must be removed and replaced with the ones in the kit. I'll post up all the pics I took shortly to the point I'm at... Once I get the studs out, the rest is a piece of cake. Simple stupid install!!!!

Well here are my step be step pics... ( kind of )


Like I said, I now have to get the studs out... I tried heating them with map gas and no good. I don't have a big vise, so I may need to take it to a shop to have them swap out the studs.
