Watch This Insane Homemade Baja Tractor in Action
Hear the word "Baja" and the vehicles that come to mind our big, beefy, lifted buggies and trucks that are ready to tackle any terrain. What you probably don't think of is an old Sears tractor, unless you're the guy who created this thing. He appropriately calls it the Baja Sears and it is ready to do a heck of a lot more than some work around the yard. The tractor started its existence as a Sears Suburban with 11 horsepower and a 3-speed with high and low gear. RELATED: See The 1969 Chevrolet Steve McQueen Baja Race Truck
Thanks to some special attention from its owner, YouTuber mistermodified1, this tractor is ready to do so much more than it was when it was born. He says that it's easier to drive than he expected with 6 forward speeds and 2 reverse speeds that help him keep it under control, for the most part.

He made a video of an early test run to see if his lifted monster would hold together once he started driving it off-road and it did just fine. He didn't hold back either, but took it at a good clip over everything from grass to dirt to logs. There's even a wheelie at the end for show.
