Default My redneck tractor build

One day I got bored and decide to take an old lawn mower I had and put a lift on it. It has 24 inches of lift and the plan is run 33 inch tires (if I can find a set of really cheap ones) Why you ask, there is run called the tator run and a bunch of people meet up and ride there redneck tractors for a good cause. They take donations and give it to a charity. Last year we gave money collected to the local fund raiser for relay for life. Only rule is that the tractor had to mow grass from the factory when new. Alot of people run stock tractors and others put car seats on them. Some change pulleys, other paint them. Each person that does it trys to out red neck the next guy every year. Some even pull a yard trailer with another rider. You remove the deck and your ready to ride.Last year we figured there was about 125 to 150 tractors. So if anyone has an old set of 33's that hold air but are not good enough for the street, let me know. Yes the tractor does run and drive like it is right now, but still have alot of work that needs to be done.....I hope to stand tall above the rest this year.

I would leave it the way it is, looks pretty redneck as it is!

It does need some horns on the front though
