    I'm the same way always upgrading things. What's on the list. Light bar, cage, rear weights? Just curious as I read an article recently where John Deere lost a lawsuit because they delivered a tractor with optional loader, but didn't add the rear weights before it left the factory or dealer. Then of course the new owner proceeded to flip it.

    Were in the same line of thought here. It needs rear wheel weights, and I want to add some led lights to the front and rear. I'm also thinking of a canopy/rops. I'd also like to clean up the hydraulics. Reroute rubber lines. And add a joystick with a 3rd valve for a rock grabber thingamajig. I also want to add another valve on the back, so I can run a top n tilt kit on my rear blade.

    I also need to add front tires. These auto tires really sink when I try to make a turn, especially with a load.

    But I've been putting it to good use ... 20200216_140649.jpg

    Yeah, probably a little too much. The trailer and junk weighed in at 8300 lbs. The titan has plenty of power, but it didnt like this one bit. :whistling:

    This is when I really envy other parts of the country. Up here moving that would be a small concern. Getting stopped for moving it would be a big concern.

    Arkansas does have it perks. The rules here are pretty loose. But that can be a bad thing too. My neighbor sets off explosives, and scares the sxxx out of all of us. But it's legal in the county. So, you take the good with the bad.
