Hi last year I hit a tree with my sled.And my front end is now all out of wack and i now can't close or open my hood properly anymore. My sled is an 1996 artic cat zr 580 and i was just wondering what would be the best way of fixing it. Thanks

15km, what is the 10 mph? i cant beleive you would do any damage going that fast? my sister hit another sled going maybe 30, bent the front of our EXT580 sideways, jut straightend it last night, i tied a chain around the ski spindle and hooked it to a tractor, then took a come-a-long and hooked to the bumper and another tractor and pulled it over, then to the sledge and a wood block and hit the side bumpers straight, then just hit the hood hinges forward till the hood lined up straight, cant hardly tell it was hit
