Installing a JD "Trunk" with Suitcase Weights

2622 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  davidg
I figured out how to mount the "tractor trunk" with the suitcase weights (5 total) on the rear (the trunk is designed to mount without the suitcase weights).

I like having the trunk, I can carry extra weight, my regular chains in case I need them, a shovel, extra fuel, salt, etc. The trunk also dumps, and I drilled holes in the bottom for drainage.

I used a pair of turnbuckles to pull the top of the mounting bracket to the rear and hooked it into a slot inside of the rear tire, the bottom is bolt through the trailer hitch hole with a large bolt (not shown)

The ratchet strap helps to hold everything tight with no rattles or clanging from the weights ;)

Very nice! The weights are hidden in there nicely and tote would definitely be handy for lots of things. It will be interesting to hear how the rubber chains work out in different conditions.
