hit a snag, the tires i plan on running up front are 24x8x12, if i put those on it i think it will be sitting level, so that leaves no room for suspension, or lift up front

If you go with a Doc locker then you can get a wide axle to match the front end, just make sure to support the axle at the inside of the wheel. The front end on my Mutt craftsman is wider than the rear, but I don't mind it because I'm gonna Doc lock the 820 eventually. Gonna have it wider to incorporate axle supports and a disc brake, I hope. Adds to stability too having it wider.

My dad's Lincoln MIG is pretty great, I haven't had problems with it at all. The tombstones are the best though. With a set of big diodes you can do TIG with them too

Oh that sucks.

What kind were they? I will try to avoid them lol!

I have an old Lincoln ac buzz box, and an old ac/dc crankface unit. The crankface is nice I can hook up a scratch start Tig torch.
I think I can hook up a wire feed unit to it aswell. Thatd be slick!

Then I got a brandy newy lincoln mig-o-matic earlier this year... I havnt really made it work yet, but I guess it works. craftsman ralley/mud mower "bad moon rising" - Page 2 2664539216
