I have a few sets of golf karts rims - i like em for the ease of changing and can have at least two sets - one for 'street' and one for offroading - down here the rims are cheep enough , most come with old tires on them - only thing is youll need hub adapters to mount them.

Might take some head scratching, but I'm sure it can be done. Be sure to get some with some decent amount of tread.

I know a guy who has a 1946 CJ2A with a sickle bar mower on it. Talk about wicked cool. He's also got a farm plow attachment.

I have seen the sickle bar on an old Wiilys before, the guy with that old jeep also had a loader attachment that looked like a rollcage. The loader hooked to the back and used the plow pump for hydralic power. The bucket was narrower than the jeep and did not have power tilt.

Early Jeeps were really meant as a replacement to the farm mule. They had the same track width as tractors and farm implements of the day. I've even seen them with a tow truck attachment and were marked to the small mom and pop garages to tow customers cars.

That body doesnt seem to be wide enough to sit comfortably in ... its a cool idea tho.

Gauges for the tractor might be a bit hard - you could adapt a voltage guage , they have rpm guages - oil pressure wouldnt work unless the motor has an oil filter - most are splash motors.

Not sure how to wire a speedo tho.... unless its something from a bike maybe?

Awesome. I thought about this today, and knew you did something like this. I'd do this if I had a lot of sheet metal and rod. Looks way cool.
