I've made a few more modifications. Some cosmetic, some to improve reliability and performance! Replaced front axle with a "C" series axle and added 300 series spindles for an added 3" of lift and 3" wider stance. Replaced wimpy 3/8" tie rod with one I welded up from 5/8" with H/D ends. Added 25x8x12 rear tires. I ended up with 16" between frame and floor. Today I'll lock the rear and start adding acessories.

Here are a few pics of the rear hubs as requested.

Picked these up at Small Engine Warehouse pretty cheap!

Got the rearend all locked up and squirted a little paint on it. I'm looking for a replacement hood so this one won't get painted. I welded up an exhaust system that dumps out the back just for the cool factor. I'll be adding weight to the front to offset the boom pole out the rear.

Love the exhaust, at least the fume are behind you if it starts to smoke :)

What's your plans for the boom pole?
And will it be Manual lift, Hyd lift, Electric lift?

My intentions are to use this as a skidder / wrecker. The lift will be a manual winch that I picked up at Harbor Freight. My inspiration is rather unusual but I'm sure everyone has seen them..... Giantic pumpkins! I planted several plants and have a few gourds that should aproach 150lbs or better. I needed a way to lift / transport them. I also burn wood in my shop for winter heat and it should skid very well with the rear locked up. It should also work well as a wrecker to move around my parts machines that haven't been disassembled yet.

It will be at your show Scott. Do you have anything to skid for demonstrations?

You might want to consider loading the front tires to keep the fronts down while pulling. Especially with the rear locked.
