Default 155/174 swap theory

So I was originally going to make my sled a 163. Currently a 155 3" and needs a new track and rails anyway. So looking at what Burandt claims, that hes running a 163 on a cut 155 tunnel, how about a 174 swap on stock 155 tunnel?
Just to be clear, where I ride is accessible without trail, and if I do run down the trail it's under 5 miles at the very most. So I'm figuring just running no flap. Curious if anyone has experimented with this combo.

Have to check on mounting points for the suspension you only need the flap for cooling but I expect it may be harder than you think. I Would put a longer bumper on it, hard to lift with the track in the way.

I could see a little longer bumper being helpful. As for the rails ice age makes a direct swap, as the stock 174 ones wont just bolt on my skid.

I ran a 163 on a 146 tunnel with no ill effects.

If you want a 174 just go for it.

if you put a longer bumper it kinda defeat the advantage of having a shorter tunnel
who lift their sled by the bumper when stuck? you guys must be strong

This is a very good point. I never lift by the bumper when stuck. Just nice for my crank lift stand when doing maintenance. But I've got a sled lift so no big deal.

Think I'll just buy rails and a track and see what happens.

174 drop brackets are farther back on the tunnel. Approx 3-4". Torque arms are different lengths, front and rear torque arms have there own mounting locations. A 155 uses the same location for both. I'm in the process to go from 174-163. Polaris does not sell just drop brackets and no aftermarket. The tunnel has extra bracing at the drop bracket location.

Kmod has replacement HD drop brackets.

I would have custom IceAge rails built. 174” configuration at a 163” length.
