let's see your homemade pull wagons.

I have been building pull wagons for family and friends for a long time and was wondering how many of you guys build them .
Here are some of mine.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places Iíve been there werenít even roads!

Wheels and tires

Where do you order your wheels and tires from?

I've got a baby on the way and live in a neighborhood known for our historic oak trees. Any suggestions on how to build a smoother rolling wagon for crappy lifted/dropped concrete sidewalks? So lots of 1-2 inch lips where concrete has lifted or dropped from root growth.

I really like the top wagon, with the wood top, I can certainly do that, I just don't know where to start on the subframe and suspension parts.

Okay, not exactly a pull wagon, but my wife wanted a dump wagon to match her her John Deere mower so I built her this...

I go to the local go kart track and talk to the racers, they will usually give you their old tires and sell the rims cheap, then I buy the sealed bearing on ebay with 5/8" I.D. with clip ring for about $2.00 ea they work great on wagons.

Congratulations
I would go with tires like on the white Search & Rescue wagon. They are low pressure and smooth over bumps, they are from garden tractors. If you have a welder the subframe is not to bad to build, I can help you with the steering.
I made this one so my nephew could remove the wheels, so it fit in the trunk of his Mustang

That sounds like fun.
I have never built one, if I did it would have to be big enough so I could drive it
