For light duty such as you are wanting, there is no wrong way to do the bottom....I would make the basket as light as possible with available flat steel or very light angle iron so it is easy to lift on and off the tractor. Hope you guys have fun building this useful project!

I just found the original thread from 2008. My bumper is just like the one in the pics. An issue I see is that the hitch sticks out and will be in the way, hitting the side of the crate, or actually the inside corners of both crates.

I guess we could cut a slot in the milk crates so that the hitch could fit in there. My buddy said he could just build the box with mesh walls all the way up and I wouldn't need the crates, but that would make it heavier. Plus, I want to be able to pick up the crate and take it into the woods where the tractor can't go when I'm cutting wood.

Try making the basket wide enough to space the milk crates apart enough to miss the hitch. Another alternative is to make the basket stick out so the crates are sitting beyond the front of the hitch. I wonder if you have enough ground clearance to have them sit below the hitch?
