So here's the plan for this thing, it's gunna be lifted, made 4x4 with a 4 speed Ford tranny married to a 205 transfer case, driven by a 18hp Kohler Magnum Oppy, and it'll have Dana 44's and 35" truck tires. It wont be obnoxiously lifted, just enough to clear the tires.

Ah it shouldnt be too bad. Search on Craigslist and car-part.com. Im sure u can find a used one for way less than 300.

Well of course my first plans on a build are always too much for me to handle, I dont have money, I'm not building this mower like I said before. I am going to put it on fairly big tires, probably some 30" Interco Interforces, build some good looking bumpers, repower it with a 25 horse Kohler twin, Peerless 820, like 24s or 25s in the front, radio, winch, re-do the fenders to give it more of a tractor look, independent front suspension, maybe if I feel like building it homemade cv axles to make it take stress off the 820 with independent in the rear, and a quality Ford tractor seat!

Hmm. I think what you need is one running tractor and work on this ford, don't rush it, you got a lot of time to wait for money and make it how you really want it. And then have that other mower for when you have riding withdraws.

I've been thinking about it and this is how I want to build it, I was drawing after a test and started drawing a bumper, and ended up with a awesome looking mower that turned out to be my Ford! I was trying to draw a sears at first lol. Here's the picture
