What allot of fun to build, with just a picture off the internet, my son and I started about 8 weeks working on this.
As we walked thru stores, he asked if his tires could be have valve like a tractor, same with lights.
back lights have a high and low so they can be used as a night light. Allot of fun to build and since its all made out of wood, it truly tested my skills. See more pictures on www.tylerridenhour.com

When I saw the title my brain connected to “truck bed” and all I could do was think “what the heck is a tractor bed?!?” In the thumbnail, it looked like a legit trailer.

Looks beefy, any idea what it weighs (guess you’ll find out soon enough). I like the drawers behing the grill. Does it come apart to fit around corners and through doors, or is my sense of scale way off?

Too many questions, I know.
