You need some shocks or struts to control the front axle if you plan to leave it articulate, it is a lot weaker than you think with the small center pivot point. I would hate to see it twist or bend when a front wheel hits something.

While it is a neat looking machine, I can't imagine it going up any hills without flipping. And that huge swing on the front end means it's tippy to the side too.

You could move the rear axle back, that would help with the wheelie/flipping.

What do you ride on, hills, mud, rocks? Or is it more of a show thing?

thats a cool lookin tractor but u need to reinforce the front and back end and put shocks or a travile chain on the front axle like the monster trucks have couse i did the exact same way and it was cool to flex with but it was very tipsy and i busted my front end right off in the mud and bent my frame so i redid my tractor

Ok thanks yours is pretty damn sweet not gonna lie but my front is pretty strong I've done a lot of work on the front and Im just gonna change the front once I break it if I do this tractor is mostly for show with a little bit of mud. Its an annual tradition to drive like atvs, lawnmowers, and tractors to school on the last day so im just trying to get it done before then so i'll reinforce it after then.
