Hello every one, my names Zach I'm from central NJ. I've always been interested in the lawn tractor scene and I've just started building my own off road tractor for fun and utility work around the house and property. I have two Craftsman (yes that's how I meant to spell it haha) lt1000's. One is my actual mower and it has the Briggs 20 hp motor the other one which is my project is an lt1000 with the 16.5 hp briggs. My while idea is to make this tractor better in rough terrain such as hills, loose dirt, mud, snow, ect. So far I locked the rear with the help of Fearlessfronts YouTube video (really well done helped me a lot) and I plan to put some bigger tires on and a winch lights and what not. I'll start a thread in the build section to keep every one posted on my progress!
