I've been watching this since the beginning, and I wanted to know if your front axle is welded solid.

Yes- With no rear suspension, having the front axle pivot makes a big difference. That bumper is THICK! You won't be hurting it anytime soon. Hey- what size are those front tires?

Wouldn't the guy who flipped his mower over backwards look like more of an idiot? I've been "that guy" by the way, haha.

More pics!! This time its my new front tires, (16") and my custom hubs.
Off a toro rer, rear tires.



Checking clearences.....




Then the hub, cut that old rim up!




Ending up with the center section/disk.



Center and weld it..





Mount it! (I need new bushings)





Gained ground clearance




Finished, looks awesome, and besides the $20 tires it was a free mod.

That's better! My new fronts are 16" also- the diameter increase does help with the rough terrain.

I was THIS close to doing the hub cut/weld that you did... And then I just used the trailer hubs, spindles, and wheels...
