I'd recommend getting one in an already waterproof housing so you don't have to go through the trouble i did to put mine in lol.

Today i realized what you get when you don't fix something that's been cracked for a good while. Oh well.

The clutch needs a stiffer spring; ever since i fixed my pulley alignment it's slipped in water in any gear above first.

I saw the video on Instagram. You went through. that no problem. Executioners are really something. I bet those tall skinny fronts help alot to. My fronts just sink in.

Yeah the only problem i had was belt slip. The bottom of that puddle isn't all that sloppy either so it's not really that hard to go through.

Welded up the rack and made a latch to hold it down out of some stainless steel rod.

26x10-12 Kenda Executioners on back, and some 21x7-10 whatever brand atv tires on front, they're bald but the height is awesome for crawling.

@RichieRichOverdrive yes they do sit up nicely. I'll be running 21x7x8 on a wide rim on the front of the Just and 24x9x10 on the Montgomery. I just love how big tires on front look on lawn and garden tractors.

Are 21×7×8 a thing? I thought 20 was all you could get on a 8in rim at 7 inches of width. I could be wrong. I also like the look. When I rebuild my Craftsman GT I might do something similar.

@mowerjunkie03 21x7x8 SunF A003! Good looking tire. It's the only tire that size.

21x7-10 and 21x7-8 are tires that were pretty scarce at one point, but thanks to the internet are pretty easy to get now. I bought the pair on the front of mutt off of ebay for $90 on rims. Well i think they were just selling the rims, the tires came with and just happened to hold air.
