and its hidden, once I pull the tractor apart to paint it I'll have to clean up the wiring, I'm not a fan of having a bunch of wires running to the battery ( maybe a junction box/block for power and same for ground side )

Nice that the boost setup that tow trucks have.

I'd keep the main connections right on the battery.  Less connections to fail.  You could put in a fuse block for your smaller loads to neaten things up.

@Crazy_Carl , yes exactly I do have it wired straight to the battery, a fuse box would work. I'm running 2 breakers and 2 inline fuses so far

@Crazy_Carl that's the winch controller line, I haven't hard wired it yet, I'm going to run both. 2 toggle switches one to power the other so my kids dont destroy my cable.

@Double W Cross Ranch Ya once I find some like tractor tread tires, there 25 x 8x12 on the back I think 26x 10 would be better and on the fronts are 22" I would like to stay the same height but skinner

Great build man! I always liked the way skinny tirea looked on a Sears but those mud lites are XLs. You should have plenty of traction. There alittle worn in the middle so dont be afraid to run them a little bit hire psi. Maybe 10 or 11.

Well I wouldn't really recomend that. It puts alot more strain on your motor and other components and if you plan on doing any trail riding or mudding all that wheight will not get you anywhere. If you want to have the weight for doing yard work you should get wheel weights you can easily remove. Jusy my opinion. Do what ever you think is best.

I assume these are 23 inch? If you want to run them in the front and you want it to sit level you might have to get/make a new front axle that has straight spindles instead of J spindles.

@mowerjunkie03 thats the plan i have a extra front axle i want to mod, the best thing if i dont like it, i can swap back the oem one and put the other one on frankensears.
@Double W Cross Ranch the mud lites? sidewall is like 9/16 think. the AGs are front tires off a 4x4 kabota
