Hey
I'm making, getting made a set of ripper teeth for my struck mini dozer,
should be about the same size as for a garden tractor.

Does anyone have a good design, and could ya'll post some pictures for me.

I can't seem to decide exactly how I want it built.

I would like to make it not only function good , but look good on the dozer.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Could you take a look at the ripper tooth arrangements used on small box blades? Tractor Supply (among other places) carries some replacements, so you might be able to take a look at them. They may be the right size for what you are doing. Mounting those to a frame made from rectangular tubing would allow you to duplicate the style used on larger dozers. Cat uses a style called a "parallelogram ripper" which mounts the ripper to a four bar linkage which keeps them vertical when moving. Smaller machines are typically equipped with multi-shank rippers, while large dozers are equipped with single shank rippers. I'm not sure which style you want to rig for your machine. You can often see good images of these configurations in dozer sales brochures which are generally free downloads on most manufacturer sites. I hope this helps.
