I've begun the process of converting a recently revived "free" Murray lawn tractor into a UTV (utility vehicle) for all the chores I've got to do on the ranch.

See the F.O.R.D (found on road dead) rescue here: https://youtu.be/MR9wX4by1WE

Phase one was comprised of getting the motor running well, putting on new ATV style back tires, putting on a new coat of paint and building the back rack.

Phase two and three hopefully will include rebuilding the transmission, locking the differential axle and doing a pulley swap for a little more speed, Also mounting a bigger battery,adding more lights then adding a front rack and bumper with 2500# winch and lastly a roll bar / canopy for shade in the hot summer.
