First off, welcome to the ATLTF forums.  I'm sure there will be a few pop in here and there with some Ideas!

Not sure of exactly which model of Craftsman you have, (looks like @Doug 's) but if a geared transaxle, pulley swaps for a little more speed.  You mentioned you put on new tires, lots of times we put on more aggressive tires. Depending on how fast you are going, you may need some steering upgrades. (oh and mower deck off and not in the way)

All in all, you have a good start there.

Looks like a good tractor to start with. I would recommend putting some all terrain tires on it, at least on the back anyway. Once you've got that you can still have fun and not get stuck as often as you would with turfs. Then you can move on to suspension!! Hahaha.

BTW, @AllisKidD21 is the resident suspension addict. LOL

Hahaha. Actually I wouldn't quite say I'm addicted, more like unsettlingly intrigued.
