Here are some pics of my project Ranch King. Got the sleeve hitch, wheel weights, the cast iron front axle and the 50" deck last weekend for it.

It is built heavy for what it is, but not as heavy as the older GTs. Its not a high end GT but I love it(its a tank LOL). The weak point it the front axle they still used the stamped steel front axle like the smaller MTDs. I have 3 front axles that are broke. I brought two parts tractor last weekend and One of them had a cub cadet cast iron front axle. So now it has a cast front axle. I brought all the parts tractors off craiglist. I have a Ranch King and two Yard man parts tractors that I found on craiglist.
I love it, but my Dad gets all the seat time some how LOL

I have a 845 (different hood style and 1996 model) I have the entire setup with the dozer blade, wheel weights, chains, and 46" deck, all I need is a sleeve hitch. If any body wants to buy it all it is $500 I just bought a 996(it is awsome). And I know the only weakness is the stamped steel front axle.
