Tractor looks great with the orange and black. 

Are you planning on mowing with this?

Sorry haven't updated in a while tractor is almost done. I am going to mow some with it but with a tow behind that I built right now I've been doing some ground engaging with it. I am going to put the filler plate back in im just still kinda thinking over my plane for it I may just keep it original. So for updates I replaced the rag joint and steering shard with a cut down one from a jeep I also just finished up my electric sleeve hitch

Love the sleeve hitch setup! Looks like it should work great. I've seen 23" tall Ag tires for a 12" rim, those would work good for ya. You could probably get them in 8" or 10" width.

Interesting, so that is why that hole is there on the hitch plate on Kal and the other Murray GT I have.  For an actuator.

Also, be sure to check actual sizes of the tires.  it may say 24x10x12 but actual size is like 23x9.5x12. Also, you can fudge a little on those sizes. That wheel should be able to handle an 8.5, and the height up to about 25/26 maybe. Just have to be sure on the 12, but I'm sure you knew that.
