So did some work on it last Wednesday I took the motor out to every wire out because they were all melted and jacked up lol took everything that involves the deck off because I'm takeing everything off I don't need and I cleaned up the frame a lil

And today I found a peace of sheet medal lying around so I bent it up to make a skid plate and painted it all up

The paint isn't dry yet but it's bed liner with flat black on top

I made it do some flexing on my old mud mower but I'm takeing all the part off it and putting them on this craftsman but as u can see the skid plate looks and works good

here is the colors I used and it turned out like this

then I did the hole tractor like that

the motor is brobly the best motor ive ever owned its a briggs 16hp single cylinder with ohv it has the adjusted govener like fearlessfront showed us on his youtube

heres my knobby on the front there 16inches tall on the stock 6 inch rim there loseing tread so before the build off ends there should be sno gogs on the front


I made some wire mesh for the head lights so keep crap out of them


but as you can see the mesh makes it look beast but ill post more pics later

I like the skid plate. One on the transaxle would serve a better purpose though.

here's a update I've been working hard on it and its really turning out good and I hope you guys like it
so I decided to make the camo a little better so I got some pine needle and sprayed over it to  make a pattern

here the name of the rig LAWN RANGER


and I also dropped the tranny its a peerless 920 5speed and took the hole thing apart to clean the grees out and run gear oil
ill have more updates as they come and hope you guys like what you see

I made my foot gas pedal and it works nicely

just a side view of the progress

I got my trail wolf tires off my tan mtd there 20x10x8 but they are a different then most these have thicker tread and has a different pattern then the ones every one else has

here is almost the finished project all it needs is a rear pulley belt and seat and it will be done

That camo worked out good. Almost looks like a printed sticker or something.

Those are the front tire version of the trail wolf. There is a difference between the fronts and backs. The backs would have lateral lugs (like most) for better traction while the front ones (yours) would be mainly for steering and light traction (like 4wd).

here's the first time I drove it and it was awesome

and I drove it for a while and went over bumps and a big hill and all of a sudden it stated smoking and shut off, so idid some research and found out the pcv breather was letting oil into the carb like fearlessfront murray so I fixed that problem heres some pics


as you can see where the muffler shot all the oil out onto my hood

and sadly it only has 3 inches of flex so im thinking about make it get more flex is that a good idea
