• 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"


    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.


09 dragon skid swap. Is my sled high enough?

Mar 30, 2020
Just need some advice or maybe a dragon owner can be nice enough to measure their rear mount for me!

I have to make a set of rear mounts, I have 2010 switchback? I think? Its getting an 09 dragon 155 skid.

Can someone please tell me how far down my rear mount needs to be? I am shooting for about 3" below the running boards. I might end up raising the front mount an inch if I need to.

I would bolt up the front mount and raise the back end until the skid sits flat with no load on it. That is the natural height I believe.

This is what I ended up with. I took it to a short ride today. But I didnt get a chance to really feel it. But It sure hooks up great. I can move the rear mount if I need. I left it untrimmed just in case
