I only used it 3 times last year. I am just north of the Western NY Lake snow and have to drive 2 hours to get to it. So it's time for a 4-wheeler.

It is always sad to lose another snowmobiler to the lack of snow, but you should have fun with your wheeler.

I thought I would put my 2 cents in here whether you like it or not and take it as that.

First of all I have driven both a Rubicon 500 and a Sportsman 500 H.O. And I must say that the Sportsman seemed to handle better, didn't seem as heavy and got the power to the ground better than the Rubicon. I am not saying that the Rubicon isn't as good but to me I just found the Sportsman just a little bit better. They are both very good wheelers and I like the electronic shifting on the Rubicon, but I found the Sportsman just pulled a little harder than the other one.

Second of all the new sport wheelers out there are all pretty sweet, but if I had the option I would take something bigger than a 250ex. The raw power just isn't there like a Raptor, a DS650, or Cannondale. But if all you can afford is the 250 ex then I would say that it is well worth it.

This is all IMO which I am just as entitled to as everyone else.

i can relate to your no-snow delima, here in western PA. we only got 1 ridable snow, i ride dirt bikes also so i know what ya mean about buying a quad you can use it a bunch more, i can give this advise, if your used to going fast on a sled you may not be so happy with a 4x4 quad most of those things only have a top speed of like 45 or 50 mph, so you might wanna think about a sport quad,they are way faster and have way better suspention for jumping ect.., the honda 400 ex is a good choice really reliable and more mods than you can imagine, also the raptor is a kick butt quad that rips, my friend just bought one and liked it till he got a chance to ride the cannondale canibal, he says its a whole new level of preformance!, the raptor is now for sale, i guess what im sayin is test ride before you buy, it the best way to get exactly what you want.

if its not a CAT, then it must be a dog!

Do you still have this sled?? If you do, could you get some measurements off the tunnel and where the holes are to attach the suspension. I have a 93 XLT and am trying to install the 12 inch suspension to give the wife a better ride. The hole locations are way different so I need the height, width and depth of the complete tunnel. Then I need the locations of the drive cog and the holes to mount the suspension. If you do not have sled, please let me know. looking forward to having some snow.... thanks
