I'm putting in Hogzilla.  This project started 5 years ago when I bought a ROUGH Bush Hog JB1 for parts.  It had been torched, cut, and hacked up, but had several parts I could use.  It sat a long while until I started looking for a diesel engine to put into it.  I found a Kubota D1005 and roughed it in.  I soon found the hydro couldn't handle the power the Kubota put out, so I bought a Simplicity Sunstar to get the 2 speed diff and hydro.  It's the identical unit that the John Deere 430 diesel uses, so figured it a good fit.   I used this tractor a long while with just primer & rust before I finally took it all down for paint last fall.

Below are pics the day I brought it home.  The 2nd pic is just the parts stacked together unbolted.  The fender boxes were eaten away on the inside.

Then the project started when I got the diesel engine.  Added floorboards off an MF14, built new fenders, and extended the hood.

Making a long story short, below is how she ended up.
