So, I was hoping to get this Tractor last year, but that did not work out. My plan then was to create a RATROD with the tractor. I didn't get it till earlier this summer so I was already full force on the Sasquatch II build.
Now, since I will have a HOT-ROD build, I see the rat-rod being redundant and I don't need 2 tractor rods.
So, with some poking about building rock climber tractor, and also it appears the church I now attend goes out trail riding once a year. I decided maybe a Rally Trail build. Not a mud build, but for ATV trails and climbing hills. I have an old 110 ATV, that I plan on scabbing the front independent suspension. I am uncertain about the rear of the build. Once I get the Squatch fixed and final video's shot. I'll drag this beast into the Garage for disassembly and cleanup. See where I stand. I do not plan on using any frame beyond the A arms on the front. The wheelbase will be lengthened a bit. It's one of those models that has the "hill" hand brake on the fender!
I need to make sure not to get close to that 50% mark. I will need to start some recovery on the transaxle soon as I can. It appears good, but the shifter is frozen.

Should be cool, a suspension setup on the rear would definitely be awesome! And not just a swing arm, something like a 5-link with some flex! It might be difficult to figure out the shifter though, and keeping the belt on at all angles... Well better you than me mighty! Hahaha.
