Those craftsmans make really nice platforms for mudders etc. You might want to make a rear bumper with some kind of protection for that light... Backing into a tree will make short work of it LOL!

Those Craftsmans are nice. I think the one I have is younger than yours, since it had a bigger engine and a wider range of gears.

Nice lookin, and who cares how they look as long they hold up! Just grind them up a little if they're too bad.

And is that your rear wheels on the front? What size are those?
