• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.
  • I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

My old 03 151 rmk had 159 rails under it with D&R and big wheel kit, 162" track on it. I have sold it but have a few pics if needed. Just letting you know it can be down and didnt seem like much effort except the D&R would have been some work.

159 swap done yet ?

It will work fine did this to 2 of my Edges. I believe one of them was a 144 originally the other a 151. Might just use the rails and transfer the suspension off the Edge , can't remember. Measure the tunnel mount points of the Skid
front to rear if the same just bolt the skid in. Worst part is the Chain case drivers removal but it actually just busy work

159 track

Or if you have bailed on the 159 Mod and the 159 Track is a good one I would buy it from you.

Just finished install on my sled, swapped my entire 144 suspension over to the 159 rails, with some help from a fellow member here I drilled new holes in the tunnel to locate the skid back a hole in the front and the hole was already in place on the rear bracket, installed a 163" x 2.4 track using an 8" big wheel, with no D&R it's a tight fit but anything under a 2.4 should fit easily
