I went to pick her up today and its a nice little sled for me! Took it out for a spin and I'm pretty happy with it. Picture will follow soon...

It's lc,studded track. I'll have to replace the carbide soon. gonna get license sticker put on and insure it and most importantly, purchase trail permit then im all good to go. Paid a grand for it. my father in law thinks i got a good deal on it. My wife and I are going to rip our sled out in our field till I get things I need to do for my sled done.

Waited for this for 3 years so im super pumped!

^^ wow your sled almost looks like mine! This winter I'm goig to enjoy my sled the way it is now. Hopefully in the next fall I'll have enough money to have a once over on my sled and replace whatever needs replacing..

Right now I need to replace the carbide.Just finished messing around in the field. I'm just waiting for "busniess day" to be open so i can reg and insure my sled and trail permit for sure ( if you are caught without a permit the fine can go up to 2 grand)

I'll have a better picture later on with my snowmobile suit on and helmet. The field we have is a 2 1/2 acre not really big but just enough to destroy fresh snows lol

I just got my very first sled over the summer it's a 94 polaris xlt Indy sp. The guy I got it from told me it need some work so he gave it to me for 200 bucks. All that was wrong with it was the chokes were stuck up so I got sum new plunger springs for it and she run's great! Not a bad deal for my first sled I think

Its a good idea to jack the sled up in the front when u are adding coolant and running it so u don't get air bubbles if i remember right
