May I suggest a front axle? ha ha
Those tires look sweet. How much better do these work than boggers?

Gus,

You should have powder coated the rims white so that once your red cab and body were in place it would look like a RADIO FLYER WAGON !!!

Thanks for the help, and lets see more pics !!

Goodyear, 21.5 x 16.1 It's hard to find specs since Titan bought Goodyear Ag tire division. Titan's web site sucks. They are arounc 200 lbs. and stand about 45 inches tall.

Since we sold our house last fall the buggy got put on the back burner for awhile. The shop is going up in another couple of months and then it is going to be the first project in the new shop.

Looks kinda cold and lonely now.

I told him the same thing when I saw him last. He said he is having it professionally done and it is only going to take about five days for completion.
