this craftsman has a 12.5 hp b&s 36 inch cut and i built it to be a puller but to many things have gone wrong with it so i had a old atv so i thought about making it a lifted off roader



this atv had a gear box built to the axle (f,N,R)  




i will be lifting it 3 inches in the front and 4 inches in the rear so that it will level out  


and if you ask how do u get the motor to drive rear axle i will be using a peerless 700
i will be putting independent front shocks


i will be using disc brakes


if u look where the deck level will be the shiftier for the atv axle , and the original shiftier will be where the 700 will be  

i put a snorkel on it because of all the mud im going to drive in  


it looks cool dont it

Not to be mean but I hate when people put directional tires on the wrong way. (the front ones) 
IT DRIVES ME INSANE!

Other than that it looks pretty cool.

I agree, they're made to spin one way to clean out, if you put them on backwards then they dont clean out as good and it looks wrong.

Cut the holt front frame off that atv and that will make your life so much easier. mod it to the frame, and it gives you the correct steering, and shock positions

Since the front tires are being pushed wouldn't it be better to have backwards.

But they wouldn't clean themselves out the right way. It still just doesn't look right.

As far as cleaning themselfs out. No tire will clean itself if it dont have any rotational momentum go thru thick mud slow not spining and they will cake up. Go thru mud slow and spinning and front tires will cake up and rear will clean out if you turn them fast enough. The fronts going to cake up eather way only way they going to clean out is going fast or it just falling out as you ride the trail. Noce build lookin forward to seeing it come along.

so in all the other pics it wasnt lifted so i got 4 inch thick blocks in the rear and 2 inch in the front (it is just a mock up not really using wood ) the only reason the rear lift it bigger than the front is because the front tires are 2 inches taller than the rear tires so it levels out
this is what it how tall it is in the front and i fixed the tires

this is how tall the rear lift is going to be


the muffler im going to cut the the small end tip and gut it so its a hollow tube

this is ruffly where the shock would be

this is the seat until i can find a big back seat

this is a driver view

this is the complete lift and leveled out

so the swing arm with the silver bolt will be mounted in the left hole

i took the side panels off so the shock can be mounted

the color will be blue cheap kind i want it to look like the atv i got all the parts from



i will be cutting the battery hole bigger for the seat so when you are going 30 mph in a turn you dont flip

i have a big dirt bike trak so im going to use this as my atv
