I'm putting a 1' lift on it, 30" tractor tires (interco interforces) in the back, 25" 4 wheeler tires in the front. 23 hp kohler pro (v-twin), mini stacks, updated wiring, foot throttle, 1998 Craftsman 5000 fenders (because of the gas tank in back, almost same style fenders different color tho), 3" pulley in front, 6" on my 820.

maybe a 6" front 4" rear, it will be fast on that big of tires. more belt traction too. 1:1 is probally your best bet but I don't know youre driving habits/conditions. I think that sidepipes on both sides would sound cool.

Sorry about no pictures, lost my camera I'm going to use my parents one and try to post pictures tomorrow morning! It's not lifted yet, doesn't have a engine on it, but I have everything but a belt and pipe for the stacks. I'm using the 3" in front because I already have it and the 5" on the axle because I have that too.

I don't have enough angle iron to lift my mower in the front and back, so I'm using my torn apart gt 5000's frame to lift the front.

Mount the big tires and try it out BEFORE altering the gearing. Tires that big will have a huge effect on the ratios and speeds.
