had to take these tires to a shop, too stiff of a sidewall for me to seat the bead... anyway got them on the tractor and added some headlights.. starting to look more finished... I also blew both the headlights out first time I turned them on, the + and - from the simplicity wiring to craftsman wiring is opposite, same connector plug just plugs the opposite way than meant to.

The running boards look great so far. Can't wait to see it with the rear fenders on!

Nice front tires and running boards.

If you're making mutiple trips (like 10 or so) hauling dirt or gravel by yourself I recommend the 12v actuator because lifting up all that weight over and over gets old.

I've been following the build rather closely and I think @MrShaft696 has done a good job designing the build should he want that upgrade; I think it would be easily added.

Yeah I think it is a great viable idea ,and I will certainly add it in the future based on that it is financially feasible & cool factor. I will not have it before the end of the build off...

What I will have is a seat mounted in the bed, because on of our gripes on the property is whenever my wife goes to dump the horse turds in the woods, she either needs to bring me or her mom to help. So with a seat in the bed two people will be able to ride around on the tractor while towing the little trailers....plus I can do safari tours.

So I have to figure out my fenders, class II hitch, tighten about 200 bolts, paint the rear rims, re paint the black on the majority of the tractor, work out some "stability mounts" & vibration isolator for the bed. The bed is a little wobbly right now since the framework is all in the middle almost. Want to get some good pics asap since the days are getting short & weather is all over the place.

I like the rear facing seat. That way it won’t be such a huge surprise to the passenger when you dump her out lol!

Are you going to add a gusset on that receiver?

I'm looking forward to a video of you hauling and dumping some dirt or gravel.  I think this should make a nice pile and easy to dump with the bed mounted higher than it would have been if it were still a trailer.
