Im planning on using this mainly for Playing and Trail riding..

Im gonna be doing a pully swap for better speed and such... Anybody have any other Good and simple mods i could do to help go through mud or sand???

Oh and is there a Inexpensive way to upgrade the steering???? cuz i really dont like the idea of going over 10 MPH and having the 3 or 4 Inches of play it has... Any ideas on that as well????

Others have swapped out the rear turf tires for either the AG type bar tread or ATV style tires.

Don't know on the steering other then to go through it and replace the parts such as the tie rod swivel joints that are showing wear. That would likely tighten it up for a start.

The Troy-Bilt looks to be in good shape. :cool
It actually is in great shape... Only payed $100 for t cuz it didnt have a blade deck and needed a new starter

Welcome to MLF MvZiC MaN. I think you might be our first member to make a mudder out of his tractor.:cool Yep, I've seen others that put ATV tires on the back, and seems I've seen something a little more aggressive on the front too.

We want to see your progress so post lots of pictures.:pics:
