• 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.

Im sure someone has thought of it, those that rode a slash is it worth the hassle? Im running a mtntk cooler so factory coolers arent an issue. The forum has gotten stale, just throwin something out there

Grab your Tig welder and do it.

I haven’t rode one but I did order one. 🤷🏻‍♂️

But is it worth it over just cutting the tunnel

Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

I wouldn’t.......

But I already own the Tig welder, have 18 years experience in welding and fabrication, have the material in my garage........

Probably an uninspired opinion though.

My 8” tunnel cut axys is super fun.

A narrow/ tapered bumper helps also.
I have a bmfab bumper as well i can cut a few more inches off i think i might do that this summer. I ran a tunnel pack last year i think it may have hurt me cooling with that part of the tunnel covered

Cut 10" off our 16's and added 5' tunnel cooler from a doo with after market react front end it's mucho fun and nimble....if / when doing again I'll install the cooler before welding the end back in ...
New sleds are great except for the $$$$$

For those who like the idea of a shorter tunnel but can't face the cost or worry the work of cutting it, we have found these to be a huge improvement.

The TKI bumper really shortens up the sled and it's lifted out of the way so it does not drag. Much easier to find the bumper in deep snow too.

They are strong too.
