Box steel for reinforcing looks good. How about making a subframe to go inside the stock frame? That would be slightly less complicated but would achieve the same result.

Impossible to do since I need to change everything then... Will take a closer look to that Rig soon & figure out a final reinforcement plan!

This is my current plan on how to solve the frame reinforcement...



With this Method I would also get the Belt outta the trap with the steering wheel so belt changes would be way easier, I dont need to cut the fenders to fit the 22" Rear Tires, & the old frame just acts as a part where the body mounts to... I just need to extend the shifter linkage to get the shifter back into alignment, IMO a good solution!

WHAT DO YA THINK ABOUT IT???

I just checked out this thread for the first time. Nice build plan stick with it! When you said 22×11×8 mudlites and quiet/loud mode exhaust I thought of Doc's Fugazi.

Yah, it's kinda copy of his Widebody....

Just missing the Vanguard (I could easily throw in if I want )
But I will Not copy his Hood design, also not the Exhaust. havent decided yet how I want to run the Exhaust, but prolly goin for a short stack that has a connector somewhere in the lower area so I can pull the stack & slap a muffler on the flange...

Also goin for different Front tires I guess..

DANG IT! Need to get my ass outside to work on the damn frame!

Yea when some sort of offroad tire is on a mower and the stock turfs are still on the front it makes it look like junk no matter how well built it is.

It more has to do with front end weight than tires. If there was a 150 pound cast iron Kohler oppy up there, it'd be fine. If it was a 15 pound push mower engine, you'd have issues.

Hope the OHV is heavy enough, but not too heavy since U need enough weight @ the rear to have good traction!

My Back is slightly damaged, but I'm able to move these Engines around, even the 20HP Vanguard in my Storage.

Well considering that I'm a few years younger than you, I'd say you got the edge on lifting motors.

Got some Goodies for it coming in the Mail Yesterday!





4 LED Backlights! Gonna use 2 of them on the Widebody, the other 2 on the AYP!

Need to pause this Project now, since the MTD has to be finished first!

Connected them to a 12V Battery in the bad lighted shop & they were a bit brighter than the Stock front Light bulbs so I guess they should do the Job that someone else can see U when U drive the Widebody in the dark.
