I got this ford yt16 with some mods to it, anyways it started as a stock yt16 with no engine seat or trans so pretty stripped apart, well we seen these people around were i live have jacked up lawn mowers so that idea came to mind that we should build one. on a weekend we were bored we built up a frame and front axel and for a transmission it has a peerless 820 6 speed im pretty sure it started out with 31's but them tires were junk so we found 33's super swamper tsl used them till side walls blew with the 33's the snapped the lawn mower axel right inside the diff so we turned down some old ford f150 axels to put in it to be more stronger after that we got a set of 35's justt some bfg all terrains we put a vanguard 16hp vtwin in it the motors not stock but sounds good. ill try to get some pics on it later.
